First Quarter 2008
Workouts to Note
I've done some strength training, biking, Pilates and other things here and there, but running and yoga have been my main focus. Last year at this time I had run 149 miles so I've stepped up the running for sure.
I realized today that my marathon time for Olathe was my second best marathon I've run. Whoo Hoo! I'm pretty proud of myself! Considering my state of mind going in, the wind and hanging back with a virgin marathoner struggling to get his last 3 miles knocked out, I'm very happy with my results.
Recovery is going well. My quads are still a little tender but that is to be expected. Over the past day, they are becoming less sore so we're headed in the right direction-still hobbling down the stairs a bit. I have concluded my body thinks it is still burning thousands of calories cuz I have been ravenous the last two days. I have splurged in eating everything in sight-there is no denying that and I have not felt an iota of guilt. I'll hop back on track tomorrow, hopefully the hunger won't overtake me. I think I'll be in fine shape for the Half Marathon on Sunday.
Off to yoga... I'm not sure I'll be able to do much, but it will help to get active after sitting all day at the computer.
