Recovery week 1 of 3

As I was watching the Chicago marathon online this morning - there was a small part of me that thought maybe it might be "fun" to jump in the Marine Corps marathon in a few weeks. Falls Road has at least one free race number. But, I quickly regained my senses - the next few weeks should be all about rest. Soon enough I'll be running long miles - and putting in a marathon - no matter what the pace is not a good idea right now.

The Baltimore half was a little brutal yesterday. I placed well (4th dude) - but, it was a little slower than I had hoped (1:14:44). But, those hills are no joke - and I was basically alone (other than passing marathoners) for 11 of 13 miles. I'm not too sore today - but, I'm glad that next week will be basically off. I'm ready for the break mentally and physically. I'm going to do some more weight training and yoga in the next few weeks - so, even if I'm not running much I'll have some physical activity.
