OK, so not the best pictures but good reminders of how hard I had to work for this PR.
This one is very close to the finish. I know that because I ditched my fuel belt once I got to 26 miles.
These is taken probably around mile 24.5, when we go over the last bridge.
And this, a bit after, I think.
#Recovery is going well. Physically I am almost there. All the soreness is gone now. I ran about 16 miles total this week, only trails, some with Chris, and it has been nice. Chris and I are going away this weekend to celebrate his birthday and do a little hiking/walking in New Hampshire. I am so excited about this.
#I am enjoying not having a schedule, but truth be told, I am much less productive in other aspects of my life, as a result. This is fine for now but come November 1st I am going back to probably 50 miles/week running until January when I start training for Boston.
#And what am I mostly looking forward to now? Reading everything running, analyzing my training log, looking up races and creating my training plan for Boston. This will be vicarious serious running for me for the next couple of months, ha!
#In other news I learned that I can't trust Chris with Petru's school projects - one of the pics he sent in for the "me and my family project" was taken right after my bike accident in 1999, and I was sporting a huge bloody bump on my forehead; I was grateful when the teacher sent that picture back. Kinda made me laugh bc this is so typical of Chris, ha!
#This is old news for now and don't hate me, but I am really excited about the new qualifications for New York. I am not really interested in running this race - I heard it is a nightmare in terms of logistics, and also very crowded - but I am very interested in qualifying. What seems weird to me is that a 1:27 is equated to a 3:00 marathon. I know plenty of people who ran a 1:27 but could not run a 3:00 marathon. Even McMillan says that a 1:27 half equates to a 3:03 marathon. So what's the logic, New York?
