I'd say about 90% of the soreness from Sunday is gone, and about 90% of the tightness remains, despite a 90 minute massage on Tuesday. Hal Higdon has 3 post marathon programs on his web site. All 3 programs follow the same thing the week after the marathon, called week zero. Then, I'll be following the Novice program for the next 4 weeks. Of course, by follow, I mean I'll be using it as a guideline. I'm definitely inserting the Buffalo Wallow 6K in there on February 3. In 2005, that was the last race I ran before my ankle put me down for good. Well, I guess it wasn't for good, huh?
A few weeks ago, I listed as one of my goals for 2007 to PR at all my previous race distances so my first shot will be the Buffalo 6K. I'd better PR because it may be difficult to find another 6K race in town.
So, here are the stats for this morning.
Venue - Memorial Park
Total distance - 2.0 miles
Time - 28:26
Average pace - 14:13
avgHR - 142 (66% HRr)
