Question on how is recovery going after the Grasslands 50 Mile Ultra just 12 days ago. Well, I ran 2 miles the day after the race just to get the legs moving. It was somewhat painful. I then went to spin class on that Monday, 2 days post race, and went about 70% for only 45 minutes. In the meantime, my allergies wreaked havoc and I have been fighting a sinus infections. I ran 4 days the week after totaling only 15 miles. One run was at 10:00 pm Friday run on Macy's camping trip.
This week, I have hammered pretty hard. Redlined the ole engine on Monday in an hour spin class, followed by a 6 mile run with some speed involved on Tuesday. Wednesday did some core training and on Thursday hammered hard in another spin class. It was windy and my allergies just couldn't hack running in that stuff.
Tonight, Friday, I am going camping again with my son and his Cub Scout Pack. I plan on doing a 2 hour trail run tonight, late...12 miles or so. So there you are...seems that I have recovered and ripping n rearing to go again...Have a good weekend...Run Like an Animal Out There!
