Takin' it Easy
When I woke up this morning, I could stand on my heels again! Hooray! It's been the worst getting out of bed each morning since the marathon. As long as I'm up and moving I don't seem to feel as bad. But as soon as I sit....boy, standing is hard! I had 1/2 hour sports massage yesterday and as much as it HURT, I think it did some good. My calves are still pretty sore, but the rest feels pretty good considering! Logan and I went on a 3 mile walk this afternoon and though it wasn't a leisurely pace, it wasn't Jodi's speed walk either. My calves could feel it on the hills, but it felt good to be out! I don't know what to expect the rest of the week, I think I'll just see how I feel and I'm hoping to be able to run 6 miles on Saturday. It will have to be very easy though. My plan right now is to do a 15-16 miler next Saturday and then a 8-10 miler the next Saturday and then the marathon. It sounds good on paper, I'll just have to see if my body will let me do it! And thanks again to everyone! I really do appreciate all your support! It makes such a difference!
