The day after the River Bank Run, I am wondering if I should have taken it easier rather than pushing the pace. While I am still enthused by my great time, I am still sore. Hopefully, the soreness subsides quickly, so that I can continue my training for the Sunburst Marathon without losing too much time. I have been stretching my legs as much as I feel is safe today and the more I use them, the better they feel. Jennie and I actually walked to Gaslight Village so that we I could stretch my legs, go to the library, and so that I could get a swim in. After a half mile in the pool, my legs actually felt better than they had all day. While I swam, Jennie walked around Gaslight with the camera and visited some of the shops that were open.
I may take a second day off of running tomorrow and just do my swim and bike ride to tutoring. That should give my legs a good workout without the impact of running.
PS: Happy Mother’s Day!!
