One thing I strongly recommend after a long run or a race is to keep moving. I’m no expert but the more I move, the better I feel. My legs feel less stiff and I’m pretty sure I recover a lot quicker. However, after this race I was more sore than I’ve ever been in my life!
I had a lot of things scheduled for our trip, and first up was a family reunion. All of Devin’s family lives in Utah, we are the lone wolves up in Wyoming:( I l.o.v.e. his family, and I consider them my own, so instead of taking a nap I choose to hang out with them. Which is saying a lot because I was tired.
This was a bigger family reunion, not just immediate family, so it was just a day thing at the park. But that didn’t stop us from having fun. The men played football the kids played on the toys, and the rest of us ate and gabbed. I still had to chase these two little stinkers around, but they weren’t too bad.
Here are some more pics from the day:
I have so much to blog about, but the marathon went great. I want to give a full report, but here is a pic from the end:
Here are my race pictures.
My official time was 3:40:48
That pretty much sums up my life. I’m always on the run, whether it’s taking this kid to baseball:
Or going to this kids Preschool Graduation:
Or trying to keep these two “locked down” while I get a workout in:
I should really try to tighten those straps:)
When you have 4 (little) kids and you are training for a marathon, you are running all.the.time. I guess it’s good training right?
I have been feeling extremely sore and tight. I also have not been following my rule of doing yoga once a week:/ I took Wednesday and Thursday completely off from any exercise, and it was very hard mentally to do that. I just feel like my body needed a break. Friday was a 8 mile run which I finished in a little over an hour. Saturday I did a really short run of about 3 miles, and then I came home and did some step for about 30 minutes.
This week will be really light as far as working out goes. I don’t want any soreness come Saturday!! Can’t believe the week is here, it’s the final countdown:)
