Sunday a week ago I ran the Erie Marathon. Now, my body feels pretty much back to normal. While not ready for another marathon, I have recovered enough that most of my aches and pains are gone.
My body is in fact in its top shape. Marathon fit. I crash to bed with no difficulty of falling asleep and enjoy no restriction in my diet. From past experience, this euphoric feeling will last me 6 to 8 weeks.
Mentally, I am taking a sabbatical from marathon. My psychic space needs time to reset. I suppose until I figured out the cause of my “dead” leg syndrome, I am not eager to jump back in.
Meanwhile, I am keeping my legs loose by gentle jogging, not hard, nor long. A few miles at the most. Nothing exhaustive. Quite a contrast comparing to my marathon training heyday.
How do fit and healthy feel to you?
