Weekly Roundup 4.9-4.15 & 4.16-4.22

Week 16 of 16

“I’m on the right track baby, I was born to be brave.”

If you missed it… I ran the Boston Marathon last week!  It was windy.  It was rainy.  It was cold.

You can read my full race report here:

Last week was my last week of taper and consisted of a few easy 3 mile runs.  In fact, I forgot my watch one day and didn’t even care!  I didn’t lift at all—instead I chose to use that extra time to put my feet up and relax.

This week was all about recovery.  The day after the marathon I went into work and taught spin class from a chair with my feet up on the bike.  I was sore on Tuesday but the DOMS really hit me on Wednesday.  They weren’t kidding that Boston beats up your quads!  My appetite was off for a few days after the marathon too.  When I got home from Boston Monday night I had a big bowl of Ramen noodles—hello salt!—then the next few days everything I ate made me feel nauseous.  I’ve never felt that before after a marathon but maybe hypothermia had something to do with it?  They also say you’re more at risk of dehydration during cold races but who knows why I could’t eat.

Regan subbed my Thursday spin class and on Saturday Georgie and I met my mom at the beach for a nice walk.

Sunday morning I taught spin class from the bike and was huffing and puffing the whole way.  That night I went home and did a 20 minute Pilates video.  I don’t plan on running for another week and I’m going to enjoy this time off…
