I had a good rest after the race. It wasn’t as exhausting as doing a marathon, maybe because I ran at a much slower pace and I ate plenty of good food along the course (peanut butter and jelly sandwich).
I felt I still had plenty of energy for the last couple miles. Distance is really a mind game. 26 or 31 didn’t seem whole lot difference except it took me almost whole much longer to finish.
Well not going think about it now. I will save it for the full race report. I need some time to process it.
I am recovering fine. Going to spent the week resting and hopefully by next week, I can start training again. It’s 16 weeks until the next race. It is my A rank race, whatever that mean.
Let you guys know my secret. I am aiming for a 50 miler next year. I plan to have another 50k at the end of summer. My first spring marathon is a springboard to the big ones.
The registration for the two ultras has not opened yet. I don’t want to think too much about them yet. There is anxiety of how am I gonna run a 50 miler and finish it near 12 hours. And then the 100 miler is not too far away from my mind… Yes take care of the 50 first! 🙂
Next year is going to be exciting!
