So I set out and I was like eh I'll go run a mile or two and see how my legs feel. I ended up running four miles. Two days after a marathon. When I told my mom about this she said "I'm tired thinking about this, Sarah." Which, ok, fair. But I took off running and it just felt so good. It was how I wanted the marathon to feel, but due to the weather I couldn't really even focus on enjoying the run. So I took full advantage of this happy feeling and just went as far as my legs could take me. Wednesday morning, my knees weren't quite pleased with this decision. Oh and the same day I signed up for a half-marathon that's taking place this coming Sunday. As in exactly 14 days after our marathon. So you know I've officially lost my mind.
So after the knee soreness, I decided to take a few days off and ice my knee for a few days in an effort to stem any injury potential. And to ya know, rest up slightly for the half. Sooo that's what I'm up to now. I'm trying to crank out an 8 or 9 miler in advance of the half, and other than that I'm not really preparing, I'm just going to run. And let's be honest, the weather cannot be *that* bad on Sunday. There's nowhere to go but up with race day weather.
