Answer: I hate the sound of keys jingling as they dangle whilst I drive; and I live on the edge of excitement!!!
Following Bayshore I went out for a few runs this past week, making sure I spaced them far enough apart to give my body ample rest. Like almost all of my post marathon runs, they were taxing. But I just went out to run ‘with effort’ but not trying to kill anything, mostly to get the rust and soreness out.
What I love most about these runs is that my legs get extremely tired after two miles and I really do get short on breath around four miles. I love post marathon runs because they are difficult, but also because they are post marathon.
It wasn’t until I did a long run on Sunday that I finally felt normal for the entire duration of a run, and that was aided by the beautiful scenery of the lake I was running around as much as anything else.
I’m in the process of planning my training for Chicago, looking to use the FIRST program and cut down on my days running per week. Also, there is a very slight chance I may forgo Chicago and run Grand Rapids the following week, I’ll let you know the how/whys next week.
