Ship’s Log–June 15th

PicShells

I hope all the dads out there had a great Father’s Day today!

This morning I completed my first run since the half last weekend. After previous races, I have rushed right back into running, sometimes doing a short run as soon as the day after the race. This time I followed the training plan I had paid for, which called for a week off after the big day.

I think this was a mistake.

This morning’s run was harder than I expected. My calves are still sore, and I had no pep at all. I was not expecting to be dragging so much after given my body a full week to recover. Usually a week after a race I’m mostly recovered, not struggling to finish a short run. I think in the future I will return to a more active recovery schedule, with a few short easy runs in the days following a race, rather than this nonsense.
