What I do After A Race

Monday: 5m progressive run 8:06/pace

Tuesday: 3.1m easy 8:50/pace, 10 abs,

What Now? One Week Post-Marathon

It’s been about 10 days since my first marathon, The North Face Endurance Challenge WI.

A few weeks ago, I warned my fiancé he’d have a very narrow window in the period surrounding the race in which I’d be anything but heinous and miserable. 342 more words
