Workout Summary:
Smooth recovery run - started slow, and after 3 mile warm up, averaged about 7:50 pace, which felt comfortable.  Fairly flat out & back past HyVee & Burger King on 291.  Just tried to keep lose and stretch out.

Felt great during the run.  Nothing injured or sore after the marathon on Sunday.  Just still a little energy depleted and stiff, but everything seems good.  Ran 8 miles yesterday, and 10 today - I'll take tomorrow off and go light on the weekend.  And then back at it next week.  I feel pretty good about where I'm at health-wise.

  1. Excellent news that you have no post race troubles! You sound like you are in such a good place physically - like I want to bottle it!! Stay healthy!!

  2. So glad you're doing so well post-marathon!

    Also, I just read your mistaken identity post. That was hilarious! Sorry to hear your cheering section was so brutally ripped away from you!

  3. Yay, no marathon injuries. Take it easy and have a great weekend!

  4. Your recovery run equals my long run this week. :o) Glad you have no aches or pains.

    (For a MI marathon consider the Bayshore Marathon held memorial weekend. I ran the half last year and it is small, fast and beautiful! It sold out in 2 days this year. Just an FYI.)

  5. Man, people like you AMAZE me!! I can imagine a recovery run...but not another full race any time soon.

  6. I love the Boston countdown ticker. I'll see you there!

  7. Great job in Austin!!! I'm a little behind. My best is 3:29:13, it sure feels good to slip under 3:30! I'd love to go sub 3:30 in Boston but i've never had a good run there. Ryan and I are running a marathon this Sunday, I'm already at #20, feels really weird. See you soon! Temps are starting to warm up here! Spring is getting closer!

  8. sounds like a solid "recovery" run! Is 84% of max heart rate pretty high for a recovery run? Maybe it was more like a moderate run haha

  9. That's awesome Jim. I'll be happy to run a week after my marathon! LOL.
