I’ve spent days in recovery mode. I feel like I’ve barely run in the past week. In fact, I only ran seven miles the entire last week.
It feels good to have some down time. It feels good to relax, and let my post marathon legs and feet recooperate. The rest is over though.
It is indeed time, time to get the game face back on. Time to lace up the running shoes and pound the pavement. I’ve got three days of running to do. Three days before leaving for Vegas for another marathon. Once I board that plane, the final rest before the 26.2. So, until that time, I have to get in a few low mileage runs. Some speed work, some hills. Now that the muscles are alive again after the City of Oaks last Sunday, I must prepare them and my mind for another journey to the finish line. That long 26.2 mile journey out in the desert in Nevada. Sin City. This Sunday.
I am excited, and somewhat overwhelmed by the adventure at hand. Two marathons in 14 days. I am up for the challenge. Recovery is over, and the preparations begin.
Look out Las Vegas, here I come!
