Ran for the first time this morning since the marathon -- I took a week off as prescribed by many, and I was plain depressed -- had the post marathon blues BIG TIME. Next time (and yes, there will be a next time!) I'm going to run anyway after a few days post marathon. It was difficult to get into it this week.
But this morning I went for a mile run and I feel great! This weekend is the Hot Chocolate 5K and I'm running it with my Dad, who said he really wanted to run a 5K with me although he has foot issues, so we will most likely walk most of it, but we will see. He wants to run, too.
For the marathon I run/walked, but this morning I ran the full mile out. That is something! And I also did some strength training beforehand, it is my goal to reach goal weight by the new year.
