It has been five days since the marathon and Mike and I have both run twice. Mike's runs actually happened on the same day, but they were two separate runs regardless.
I started out with a 2 mile run on Wednesday evening and it was probably a little bit shorter than I wanted to run, but it was a nice transition back. Then last night, Mike and I went to the #TrailsRoc Ladies' Night run. Guys were welcome too! There were about 12 people total and it was a lot of fun running on the trails at night. The pace was relaxed and the terrain wasn't too challenging, which I appreciated.
I love all of the bright colors!
I'm really happy with how quickly I bounced back after the marathon, but I am still taking it pretty easy. We are hoping to run 8-10 miles on Sunday, hopefully it goes well!
So what's next for us?
Tomorrow we are volunteering for the inaugural Great Lakes 100 Mile Triathlon, it should be a lot of fun!
In terms of racing, we aren't done for the year yet! Next weekend we have Reach the Beach: New Jersey and we can't wait! It is going to be a lot of fun and you should follow me on twitter and instagram (@couch2ironwoman for both) to keep up with all of the shenanigans. Check out #TeamRESR for lots of updates!
The rest of the year will be full of other races, a half marathon, a few 5Ks and the start of the Freezeroo Series.
2013 is going to be epic because we will have not one but two marathons and a Half Ironman distance triathlon. January 14th is the start of training for the redemption marathon!
What does the rest of the year hold for you?
