I had full intentions of getting the second part of my Walt Disney World Marathon race recap up today. But in all honesty, I am so tired. Marathon recovery is no joke, and I’ve been reminded of that all over again. This week has been a real struggle ya’ll. The struggle bus doesn’t even come close. I’ve also had to deal with switching hosting providers for my blog, and that in and of itself has worn me out. So if you’ve noticed anything weird over the past few days, that was why. Or if you notice your comment has disappeared, it’s because I had to re-do a couple posts that didn’t transfer over. (I think I lost 12 of your comments, whomp whomp!) Long story short but switching hosting companies has been a long time coming and I’ll have to fill you in at a later date! Also, SiteGround is the bomb. Bluehost, not so much. If you’re looking to catch up on my last two posts, you can check them out here (<— giveaway!) and here (<— expo recap!).
On Monday night I passed out so hard on the couch that I barely remember being carried to bed.
On Tuesday at work – wait, was I even at work? Pretty sure I don’t remember anything from that day. I do remember not being able to walk properly.
On Tuesday night I put two pints of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream in the refrigerator. Heart = broken.
On Wednesday night I went to bed at 8:30, after taking a hot epsom salt bath.
On Thursday at work I left my lunch sitting out all morning and spoiled a package of Chobani yogurt. Heart = broken again.
On Thursday afternoon, I went to the dentist and almost fell asleep in the chair. I hate the dentist, so that’s saying something.
On Thursday night I laid on the couch and watched 5 episodes of 48 Hours: Hard Evidence.
(Thursday was really just a rough day, and I think the previous 4 days had all just eventually compiled together.)
I shall continue to lay on the couch and eat pizza.
Marathon recap post will have to wait until tomorrow!
Happy Friday everyone!
How do you recover from marathons? Or from races in general? What are you doing this weekend?
I remember being pretty wiped out after my first marathon, but I must have blocked out the details. I’m super excited to spend the weekend at home relaxing, and giving not just my body but my mind a much needed rest. I think I’m out of the sore phase, but I can just tell my muscles are still weak, and I know it will just take some time to get my strength back.
