It's 10 days post LA Marathon and I am barely feeling like I want to do something. Actually, yesterday I got on the treadmill for about 4.5 miles, legs still felt sluggish and heavy and although I kept my HR in zone 2 my pace was slow. Then today I was scheduled for a swim and went right after work only to get to the pool and realize I forgot the swim trunks! Shit!! So I changed plans, came home and jumped on the bike trainer for tomorrow's workout, swapping them.
So after the bike Hill trainer workout I feel pretty good and it actually felt good to be on the bike. Although it was only for an hour with several changes in gearing, out of the saddle climbing and seating climbs I was ready to be done with it.
Overall, mentally I was not prepared to be out of the game this long, actually, I really didn't even think about how long mentally it would take me to recovery I was more worried physically and it felt like 5-6 days after that I was ready physically, probably not, but the mental side wasn't having any part of it and so I just relaxed ate and drank beer!! (sorry Coach)
Life is keeping me busy that's for sure. JT's been on the really happy side these days while being with Jenn and I realize that life is so much better when you can share your happiness. Although she thinks us Triathletes are totally psycho and nuts (which we are, ha!) she has no problems telling me to get my ass out there and go do something!
In other news, I just found out that the Outlaws will be hitting Sin City come April for the Rage Race and will look to hook up with S. Baboo and the gang! On that note, I need to sign up for that race!!
