I felt well enough this morning to go out on my first "recovery" run from my marathon. Well, more like a recovery run from my cold, since my legs felt great. My cold is still lingering, but I have too many things to do to be sick. Kim asked "Is your cold the post-marathon depressed immune system syndrome?" I do believe that's it. I said it before but I'll say it again, I'm rarely sick and can usually fight off the germies at the first sign of illness. But this time they got me. By the way, Kim....After your awesome run at Mohican, I don't think you can call yourself a newby any longer.
This morning's run was an easy 3 miler around the neighborhood streets. Tomorrow morning I'll meet J for another easy 4-5 miler. On Wednesday I'm off to Chicago on business. I've never been to the Windy City before and I'm packing my running gear so I can run Thursday morning along the lake. Someone has conveniently mapped a nice running route from my hotel on USATF's America's Running Routes. How handy is that? Friday I'm home by noon and want to get in a longish trail run in Forest Park in the afternoon or evening. Saturday we're heading out for a quick, overnight backpacking trip. And of course, before we leave I'll have to check the Western States webcast.
You see?...I don't have time to be sick. I probably won't be able to post again until next week. So good luck to all the racers and I hope everyone has a great running week!
