A week after the big race and it has been a fully
lazy relaxing and indulgent seven days. It was nice to sleep in, spend evenings on the couch and enjoy the most sinful treats without any guilt. I watched my favourite shows in real-time, stayed up too late slightly later than my usual granny bedtime, slept in, ate out with friends and family – all without worrying about accommodating my training schedule.
I did get out for two short runs (8K on Thursday and 10K on Sunday) with my training group, for purely social reasons. It was refreshing to run just because I felt like it, although my legs were feeling pretty heavy and stiff.
As of today I’m ready to get back on track with some sort of training regimen – still no expectations or pressure, just doing what I love because it makes me feel good. I am also ready to clean up the diet and start eating and hydrating properly again.
First time bringing a packed lunch to work in a week!
Ready for success all stocked up on fresh produce:
