First post-Marathon run

4 miles 32:15

Wow. That was not very much fun...I waited 4 days, and when I finally got out for a run, it made me want to wait another 4 days...

I felt ok for the first couple miles. I walk a lot at work, so I figured my legs were recovering fine, but by the end of my 4 miles, my calves felt worse than at the end of the marathon. So tight and sore.

I'm cutting myself some serious slack when it comes to running right now. I didn't think I would rest this much, but now it's been 8 days, and I think I'll be ok coming back tomorrow or in a couple days. Probably sorter runs for this week. I had my eye on a cheap half-marathon in pueblo this december, but we'll see.

Anyone else familiar with the post marathon running pain? probably not that 50 marathons in 50 days guy...


  1. I've just given up running for seven days after every marathon or ultra. I'm older and it's just not worth it. I will walk or do yoga. However, I do come back strong and I've done two maratons back to back this year so I think I did the recovery thing in the right way...for me anyway! Hope your pain goes away quickly!

  2. Post-marathon pain, yeah about that. It stinks. Thats all I have to say about that.

  3. Ok, I'm new to running (my first 5K is on Sunday) so I have nothing to contribute other than.."Thanks for being an inspiration to me."
