I’m in both.
I already know today is going to be long. For some reason these guys over here don’t really understand that Mama needs her sleep after a big race.
We’ve been up since 4:00 am. Isn’t that lovely?
At least they helped me out with a little laundry last night.
Oh man, not only am I in recovery mode today though (which looks like this by the way),
but survival mode also with the early wake up time and just trying to recoup. Yikes. Good thing I have nothing on my schedule. Oh wait, that’s not right. I have 4 classes to teach. Awesome.
I thought I’d pass along a little recovery tip I learned from the the Pro Compression man himself while we were hanging at the LA Marathon expo. He said you should recover in compression socks not sleeves.
The socks keep the blood moving from the toes to the heart at a faster rate. When you just wear the sleeves, the blood doesn’t get down to the toes.
Good to know, huh?
I made sure to get my green in last night for Saint Patrick’s Day.
They sure didn’t forget the jalapeños last night. He he. I am the pizza queen. I am also the queen of doctoring cheese less veggie pizza up the right way.
We had a special wine last night to celebrate the PR.
Guess which glass was mine. He he.
Andrew passed up dessert, but I sure didn’t. No way. Not after a marathon. I piled everything I could in that bowl.
The race recap will be on the way soon. It’s just not happening right now. The only thing that’s happening right now is the making of a strong almond coconut mocha.
How do you recover from races?
Do you recover in socks or sleeves?
Anyone else in survival mode today?
