It’s been five days since I ran my neighborhood marathon, but today I decided that my body had recovered enough that I could go out for a run. I took it easy, just running a couple of miles, but I felt sluggish and my legs felt heavy. It seemed like I also lost my usual running form at the beginning, which was more amusing than concerning. 😂 It was a very short run but it was so nice to get active again!

Since Tuesday, I’ve been eating a lot of sweets and also having a drink or two each night. I guess I still was hanging onto that hunger you get after a long run. Or maybe I was just being lazy and overindulging? That’s probably it.

Anyways, it’s back to running! As for participating in the Austin Marathon, I still haven’t decided. It’ll be a game-time decision, probably.
