First week of October. Fall is definitely in the air here in the Mid-Atlantic.
Running in the woods, I see lots of leaves have fallen to the ground and opened the space for lights. This change of seasons always reminds me the passage of time and by extension our life. And whenever I forget, mother nature is there to remind me.
Time to move on from the Erie Marathon. After a month of reflecting, I believe the culprit of my “dead-legs” in the race was caused by over-training or more precisely lack-of-recovery during the tapering period prior to the marathon.
I still have faith in my marathon training. And what I need to improve the next time is incorporating better metrics and options for recovery. So I can be more mindful in getting the job done. This lifelong learning & improvement is what in my soul which I wholeheartedly believe.
Have a nice week!
