Recovery week

The downside to running a body-beating race, such as a marathon, is the accompanying mandatory week of recovery.

Fortunately, I have very little overall muscle soreness. My biceps are a bit tight from pumping and I can feel some soreness in my legs, as well. But I can’t wait to get back on the trails—maybe indoor track and treadmill, now that the weather is turning colder.

Yesterday I began researching and planning my 2014 marathon schedule, and I think, already, I have decided which races I want to run.

Tentatively, they are Go! St. Louis, Grandma’s and Chicago.
