It's Good To Be Back

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

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.

    You are awesome!
There is plenty of time to reach your goal weight by New Years and I know you can do it! I am working on getting closer to mine!!! We can do this if we want to!!

    Awesome Kathy! I think my hubby had those "post marathon blues" too! He was acting upset that he couldn't run for a week as well. He's back now and enjoying it.

Way to go on your marathon, and how awesome that you are going to do a race with your dad!

    It can be hard to get back into running after a break, but you've done so well. Have a blast in the 5K with your dad!
