Marathon Recovery

I took a real break from running. One full week off. Post race, two to three days I discovered tight and sore leg muscles. My quads were equal, left hamstring an apple-size knot persisted for one week, right ankle soreness lasted 36 hours.
Did light stretching, yard work and later in the week one yoga session and started back on with regular situps and pushups.

  1. Congratulations on the win! I fell apart after 20 (again). Looks like I'll be taking everyone's advice and take a break - but I had to get the demons out first...

  2. It's the yardwork that gets ya. Nice race report, a view from the front for a change!
