What's next?

Of course the day after a race, you want to sign up for the next thing. I have tentative plans for next year and I'll write about that soon, but I'm thinking about the right now. Do I take off a few days, stretch out, cross train? Or get right back into it with some easy runs?  What do you do after a half assed half marathon?  I'm sore today but not half as sore as I was after the one in September. I believe the e21 was a factor in that as well as being in a little better shape (wanted to DIE in September versus happy the whole race yesterday). 

Stay tuned later for CLIF winners - still time to enter, I'll draw later

  1. Depends on how sore you are. I wouldn't run again til the soreness is gone. But easy spin on the bike or easy swim is perfect. It's better to move around a bit than do nothing, but no pounding running until no soreness is my rule. :)

  7. If I were you, I would give your body rest. Resting is just as important as workouts... you dont want to get hurt! Start running in a few days or next week!
