Happy Thursday everyone! The weekend is almost here!! It’s an absolutely gorgeous day here. Sunny and 80 degrees! I love it, but this year the heat makes me kind of sad. Once it’s this hot everyday, I’m not sure how much running I’m going to be able to handle!
Today started by subbing a Jazzercise class, and it will end with Jazzercise tonight! Which is great for my post-marathon body. On top of being sore, I’ve also been swollen everywhere! My abdomen, my thighs, my feet… Everything is poofy and uncomfortable after my 26.2 miles on Sunday. So drinking lots of water plus a fun sweat session should help me get back to normal a bit faster!
My body definitely reacted to this race a little differently than Little Rock. I was super sore and could barely walk during the first 24 hours. By Tuesday I was walking a little better, but I developed a low-grade fever. Yuck! I felt icky all day. I think it was just my body’s way of trying to heal itself.
Today I’m finally feeling back to myself, minus a few aches here and there. And I’m actually more swollen today through my lower half than earlier this week. Weird? Yes, for sure! But I guess there isn’t a set standard for what your body will do after a hilly marathon!
I also found my race photos online. And I once again copied them like you’re not supposed to. Here are a few of my favs.
Watch that ponytail swing!! Haha I had no idea it was so out of control. I was thankful for my hat to keep my hair and the sun off my face though. I also didn’t realize how I awkwardly tried to smile at very single photographer on the course. Oh well! Better than the look of sheer pain. 🙂
Have a great evening! See you all lata!
