Day407 recovery

Almost two weeks now, recovery from the hundred mile run is still going slowly. Immediately after the race, I could hardly walk. I slept for an hour or so before going back to the hotel that day. I then slept for the next 8 hours or so. There was no running the following day. Besides,… Continue reading Day407 recovery

Day405

I’m still savoring the run at the Rocky Raccoon. I was disoriented during the race and immediately afterward of putting together much coherent thoughts. Time flies. My sleep pattern is out of wack too. I did not get much sleep beforehand. There was no sleep during the race. And I slept a lot afterward when… Continue reading Day405

Day299 Last day

Yay! Tomorrow we will begin a new chapter and we kick this crazy corona2020 in the bucket. Kidding. I think we will live with the new normal for a long time. Not anything spectacular to write about today except it is the last day for filler. I do have something but they are controversial and… Continue reading Day299 Last day

day272 recovery run

Run#3 distance 10 mi, GVRAT 58 mi. I got lazy of measuring the distances on Google Map. I don’t know how to do it from the phone. There is some problem with the live tracking website, so I am running blind now until they fix it. Today run was kind of hard as expected. I… Continue reading day272 recovery run

Day 124

Day 124 I’m trying to get back to my run schedule. But feeling tired generally. What happened : I had two great runs last two days, doing about 4 miles each day. It was hard to breath until couple miles in. I was easily get winded. Legs are still tired. I am hoping tonight run… Continue reading Day 124

Post marathon blue

Day 110 Not sure if it is actually real thing, but I’m suffering post marathon blue. I guess when you get such a runner high and a week later you feel normal life is too normal. The cure is, of course, to go back out and run. I returned to semi formal training but don’t… Continue reading Post marathon blue

Recovery

Day 96 I spent last few days on recovery. Basically no running. Nothing much to say. Today is the fourth day but still I feel tired. I have not recovered 100%. I feel it is a little over 50% and maybe at 60%. I am glad to be healthy though. I should be ready for… Continue reading Recovery

Expectation

I would like to believe that I am somehow better than last year in term of having greater endurance after completed all those marathons. I can tough through anything. Anyhow these last few weeks after my marathon (wow almost a month now), I am feeling very lethargic and it brought me down a notch. I… Continue reading Expectation

Day after after

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
