post marathon

Recove(red)Well, I am officially recovered from last week's 1/2 marathon.  It was not too bad, a couple of days of me quad's delayed onset soreness.  Stairs hurt.  I am hoping to do a full marathon in the new year.  I am getting fairly reflective about all my training.  It has changed me in many ways, but has only been noticed on the most surface level by others unless they talk with me.  I t has become a deeply personal place where I can pray, reflect, meditate and in an ironic way, be still.  It has also become a social outlet for connecting with those I normally would have little in common with.  So, in the next few blogs, I am going to focus on the blessings running has brought me, so that you too could be inspired to be your best!

Have you tried ice baths... post run? Read my blog post on www.epoboost.com/Blog

I know that it is a little cold... but it works.

Yes, I have, well, at least cold baths. I dont enjoy them, but they do tend to help. The only problem post-marathon, is where are you going to be able to have an ice bath? They should offer those rather than massage, which apprently can possibly cause more harm than good.
Thanks for the post!
