Post Marathon Funk (round 2)
Last week still feels like a dream. The only thing that's making me believe it actually happened is the obnoxiously large bling that is with me at all times (Seriously. It's in a ziploc bag in my purse right now) and the over 700 photos I just uploaded to my computer (so, yea. I'm working on that recap ;). I think it would be easier to believe if I was in pain or sore, but that went away surprisingly quickly (I'm sure the 5 miles we walked through the park the next day didn't hurt!). Don't get me wrong, I'm super grateful. Just sad it's over. It was good times.
Speaking of post marathon blues, this time around it's not really emotional. . . more of a physical funk. My face is broken out, I have a canker sore in my mouth (ps- just put chewable aspirin on it- holy crap that sucked but now the pain is gone!), and I'm trying desperately to ward off a cold. Not only that, but since I decided I could eat anything I want (i.e. carbs) my insides don't feel so great either. I'm just a mess. I can't wait to just sleep this fabulous long weekend away. . . and get my thoughts together about becoming an official marathoner :)
What do you look forward to the weeks after a big race?
