Recovery

It is a wonderful feeling when the pain starts to get bearable.

On Monday, I was in pain.
On Tuesday, I was able to get in and out of a chair without groaning audibly.
Today, Wednesday, I am still a little bit stiff, but well recovered.

So far I’ve kept my resolve and haven’t been running. The fact that we had gale force winds and lots of rain, helped. We’ll see how long I can resist the twitching, but I guess I’ll hold out a bit longer. The weather forecast is ok for Friday. Maybe the weekend will see me back on the road.

  1. Sounds like running in Wisconsin- my grandfather was from Kerry... wish I could get back.

  2. Enjoy the recovery time, and stay out of the gales!

    The runner who died on the course may have had a health condition that didn't make itself immediately apparent. Many times, the first symptom of heart disease is a fatal heart attack. On that cheerful note ... enjoy your recovery!

  6. Have some good rest Thomas, you deserved it.

    I read your other post about the runner who died in the 1/2 mara. That is a tragedy.

  7. Kind of nice that the weather cooperated with your recovery! It's good to have a reason to stay in when it's nasty outside. Have a good rest!

  9. I love that stiffness, it's the hard earned badge of a runner and I hope to ahve it again on Sunday...although my plans are only for a 5K!!!
    Bad Luck about the runner from London - I'm glad his family was there so they didn't have to be notified over a great distance. I feel for the family and for the poor sould who had to tell them.

  10. What happened to the "maybe two weeks"?? Well, you know your body best. Maybe the weekend is the right time. By the way, I just found out my CT running friends are doing the Dublin marathon in October! They are so excited. I would come along if they had a half!

  12. Take your time, there is no rush now, after the marathon and the stress from last week.

    We never know when will we die, but young and on the road, sounds like a terrible scenery.
