Yes, the race is over, but I thought I’d still do a training recap and share more photos. Last week was a taper week. Total weekly mileage was 19.2.

After the race I unfortunately had no time for an ice bath, yoga, or even putting my legs up against the wall for a few minutes because I had to shower and get ready to drive an hour to help prep for and attend my family’s Halloween party (it is their big thing that they plan a year in advance…will post photos soon!). I was, however, absolutely starving and proceeded to pig out the entire day and night. I don’t feel very guilty though. 🙂
Yoga for Runners
3 mile hike
I woke up with sore legs, but otherwise I felt great. I did some recovery yoga. Because it was a nice day, I wanted to go hiking with Django somewhere, so we went to Raccoon Creek State Park. I didn’t think much of the 5-mile trail I suggested we hike, since that distance is pretty routine for us. However, about 1.5 miles in, I realized how tired my body was, and I knew I’d never make it the whole way. So we cut the hike short and just turned around. Lesson learned to just rest the day after a strenuous race! I did get some good photos, though.

This upcoming week will be a recovery week, though I do have a 5K race next Saturday that I’m doing just for fun.
Happy running and working out this week!
