Still Sore

  • This is getting stupid.  My quads are still sore from the half marathon on Sunday. 
  • I'm really loving Ashtanga Yoga right now.  I'm starting to move into the rest of the standing poses in the Primary Series and it's getting much more difficult.
  • This strange pain in my left foot has turned into something similar to what I had in my right foot after the Charleston Marathon.  That took 10 days of no running to heal up, as I still think it was a torn or bruised tendon.  So that's the plan with this foot as well.
  • That means lots of biking and swimming in the meantime.
  • I'm digging on the bike right now anyway, and the weather is becoming favorable for some nice rides.  Can't wait to get out there this weekend!
  • One of my favorite coaches on the RAM team had to leave this week as they have ramped up her duties at NC State.  Total downer but I'm happy for her.
  • I won an award at work last week.  Twice a year the regional managers select a technician for "outstanding service achievements" which includes verifying everything through the corporate office in Detroit and the clients for their satisfaction level.  This year they picked me.for my technical expertise and leadership skills; which are both things that my last employer constantly complained about saying that I was severely deficient in both.  My last employer was severely deficient in retaining good employees.  It's nice to be appreciated again.
  • Kelley has a 5k on saturday that's a part of the Grand Prix series.  I'm skipping that one to stay home with the kids while she runs.

I am not surprised you are still sore. A couple of hills will do that to you! The trail race I ran two weeks ago had me sore for at least 5 days! I think it's more the going down than the going up! Your muscles really have to work!

I hope a little rest does the trick for your foot!

my post-race soreness always seems totally random. when i think i'll be sore for days, i'm not, and for a race i think 'i won't be sore' i am too sore to walk. good stuff. at least you can swim and bike. hope the foot heals up quickly!

I bet the soreness is from all those wicked hills! hope it subsides soon! We did a tough hill work out a couple of weeks ago and I was more sore after that workout than I was after my half marathon where I really had pushed myself.... Hills kill!

Congrats on the work award - it is really nice to work for an employer that recognizes and appreciates your strengths & abilities!

I was once rated 4 of 5 for attendance at work. I had perfect attendance and asked why not 5/5. My supervisor told me "Well if I did that you would have no room for improvement."
Yes, he too is an ex supervisor.
