Mon 22nd - Post Marathon Rest Day
Felt good - differently to normal it was the joints that ached rather than the muscles.
Tues 23rd - Easy Swim
Joints felt fine but calves now feel a bit tight. Nothing major though.
Weds 24th - Rest Day
Feeling normal now
Thurs 25th - 20-30mins conditioning
Had family round all day and felt utterly wiped out from socialising and baby wrangling so didn’t do this.
Fri 26th - Easy swim
Had a nasty stomach bug - never normally throw up but did for this one. Guess that’s why I felt wiped out yesterday. Anyway - didn’t swim as a result
Sat 27th - 25mins easy run (actually had intended to run a 5k XC race)
After a huge night’s sleep I felt way way better but Mr B wouldn’t let me run XC (yeah ok, he was right!) so I did an easy 30 and supported the XC runners instead.
