Happy Monday to ya! Hope your weekend was splendid. I’m here to recap some miles and smiles from last week!! This was a fall back recovery week after my 2nd ultra of the year – the Remix 50k!!! Recap is here if you missed it.
Let’s see how things went post race! Read on below.
Monday- Active recovery day. I did some yoga stretching at home and caught up on home stuff. And lit all of my fall scented candles. Current fave – mulled cider for the win.
Tuesday- 5.12 after work sunset miles. The legs were still feeling pretty stiff on this day, especially after doing so much shuffling in that dang SAND during the trail race! I mean the sand was deep and loose so my legs were putting in serious work. Good stuff though because races like that really expose you and show you what you are made of!! So I guess I’m made of steel or something because I did not break. Or fall (which I tend to do during trail ultras haha) Happy for that. The relaxed miles after taking time off helped get things going. Motion is lotion, baby.
Wednesday- 5.21 miles after work again! Switched it up and had some off the beaten path miles. Legs moved just a tad faster but I still kept things relaxed and did a loop with a slight incline.
Thursday- Lunch miles! 5.22 miles with a fall view.
Friday- 7.13 early beautiful sunrise miles with incredible fall weather. Temps were in the 50s and I was such a happy camper.
Saturday- Very relaxed 8.02 mile run just enjoyed the cooler weather and people watching.
Sunday- REST DAY
Plus post 50k race eats – sushi and spicy edamame. Come to mama.
There you have it!!
How was your weekend? Anyone also doing some real (or virtual) RACE recovery?!
