Post Race recovery

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Well I got a 30 min on the pre core Monday done. Tuesday my legs where just shot! So it was a self declared rest day. Today is back at it. UGH.. I think I have post race cobwebs in my head. Also I'm working today and I don't want to work. I'm so burnt out from working and I need about 2 weeks to unwind from all of that before I start to function properly again. Can't explain how that works for me but it does. I guess the good news is I work 1/2 a day today, and then I'm off for a week and a half thanks to birthdays, and spring brake!

I have a plan and a goal and I'm need to focus on that. I need to keep the big goal in the picture so I don't have so much post race blues. I've got a lot of 'races' lined up. I think I need to adjust my thinking of them as just bench mark activities. Not true races. I wonder if that mind game will help with the the post race blues.

Next up on the Activity calendar is a Metric century bike ride followed by the 'gator grinder' a 500 yard pool sprint triathlon in May. May is a back to back weekend activity month for me. With a 65mile bike ride, tri sprint, and a 1/2 marathon, all in 4 weeks. Yikes! My goal is to PR, the 1/2 marathon. Then the big race is 2 weeks after that. And today I wonder if I over planned myself. YIKES!

Well off to work I go..

    I'm so excited for you and all of your plans! I hope you'll keep sharing training and race reports. (Especially for me who is stuck on the sidelines right now. LOL!)

    You'll manage. You'll be busy and active and loving it! You'll also know when to allow yourself some down time. Enjoy the adventure you're facing!

    Oh my, what a full schedule of competition that sounds like. I'd say listen to your body and do what you can as you can.

    Good luck
