Post-Marathon Recovery is proving to be as emotionally difficult as the Pre-Marathon Taper. In the days after The Boston Marathon I felt like I could do anything, run anything and achieve any personal goal because nothing could be harder than finishing 26.2 miles.
The SuperWoman Effect is finally starting to wear off and after 10-days of not running my body decided that it not only wanted to go for a run. It needed to go for a run. Badly. So I went out for a 7-miler and felt great. Today my five-miles around the Portland waterfront felt a little slow, but I’m not worried. It felt so good to be running in the sunshine.
