Making it work

ORN: 4 miles, 48 min, 4/2, treadmill

I'm actually pretty fired up about my training. I think taking some time away really helped, plus, it's been a month or so since the Marine Corps Marathon.

The rule of thumb is that it takes one day per mile [if you're under 40] or one day per kilometer [if you're over 40] to recover from a marathon. So, since I am WAY past 40, it really should take about 6 weeks to feel normal. I think that te fact that I use a run/walk strategy makes the recovery shorter.

I'll need to be careful now not to let my enthusiasm get the best of me.

Waddle on, friends.
