This week has been a bit of a let-down after finishing the Grand Rapids Marathon last Sunday. (You can read my race report and see video here. If you want to see my official race photos, you can check them out here.) I've been trying to lay low and make sure I'm fully recovered before I jump back into training. Anyhoo....here's a peek at my week.
Loving my Grand Rapids Marathon bling!
The van got some new bling, too!
A much needed trip to the chiropractor.
First post-marathon workout with my Chocolate Milk Refuel swag. This just in - marathons hurt your abs too, even if you don't realize it at first.
Today was the "Run the Hood" virtual 5k and 10k hosted by The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. I didn't sign up (not knowing what condition I'd be in this week) but decided to walk it as a "bandit" with Mel. We had a great time and finished our walk at Bell's Brewery. Win-Win!
Today was the first concert of the 2011-2012 season for the concert band M performs with. They put on a great show today.
I had some rough emotions last week, coming off the marathon and coupled with a very stressful work week. Do you ever have the blues after finishing a major race? How do you cope?
