I’ll have my race recap up tomorrow morning (I ran a 1:24:27) but for now let’s talk about what happened after the race!
I took it to the grass, the trails and a little bit of dirt for another 3 miles to bump my mileage up to 16 for the day (FOUR WEEKS until Tucson).
One of the trillion reasons that I love St. George—> they have running/bike paths EVERYWHERE. They have more of these trails than any other city I have been to.
And I finished my cool-down on the red dirt (the picture doesn’t show off the redness very well).
Went back to our friend’s house, got ready in record time after a shower because I was hungry.com and needed food asap. Post-race hunger is intense.
I stuck with my three favorite food groups: salad, sweet potato fries and froyo. Just 5 weeks ago I was pretty much just eating rice, applesauce and chicken broth. I’m pretty grateful to my doctor right about now for figuring out what was wrong.
Well, I forgot to stop my garmin for the ride home (it didn’t take us 8 hours but I didn’t notice it was on until I was unpacking).
Ya know, just a quick 250 mile run at an 8:00 pace. No big deal;)
At night I got to hit up the BYU basketball and this soft pretzel with 32902 grams of sodium hit the spot.
Today we have two things on the agenda:
1. We will be spending a lot of time on the foam rollers to help my body to recover as quickly as possible so that I can hit my workouts this week before the taper starts.
2. We will be as lazy as we possibly can and nap and eat and nap.
Actually, I think three things… we will make waffles.
