First run since the marathon

I ran 2.5 miles on the indoor track last night at the gym. I made sure to go at a slow and easy pace, but for some reason, whenever someone is in front of me I speed up to pass them. This must stop. It's not a race. lol My shins were still slightly sore and my legs ached last night. They feel great this morning though. I won't be running, or doing any form of cardio, tonight.

I do intend on running an easy 3 miles tomorrow along with lifting weights.

I talked to one of the regulars at the gym. I have spoken with him before. he lives in my neighborhood and sees me running often. He also has done local duathlons that my dad has done as well. So I have run into him at those events too. Anyway, he saw me during the marathon on Sunday. it was at about mile 19. He said I looked like I was having trouble with my leg. He also said how impressed he was with my pace. When he saw me, we were ahead of the 3:45 pace group. I told him my finish time, talked about upcoming races, etc... as we walked a few laps on the track.

This, again, proves my theroy on how all runners have that certain connection. You can talk as if you have been friends or have known each other for so long. I like that.


  1. I love the conversation I have with runners. It's such an open and friendly community!

  2. I agree, runners do have that instant connection!
