Marathon Journal: 15 miles knock-kneed
March 1, 2010
I did an easy 10 mile run and should have stopped. But noooOOOooo I had to do 15 miles and slaughter my legs on those last 5 miles. I went paint-balling yesterday and dove into ditches, crawled on my knees and did other stupid things I shouldn’t be doing just before a marathon and I hadn’t fully recovered. My left foot hurt so I limped out the last 2 miles. I could feel my knees knocking around but it didn’t hurt a lot.
After the run, it was time to soak my legs in the cold pool while wolfing down dinner. My Beloved made a meat loaf so I had a giant meat loaf sandwich, potatoes and broccoli that was better than lobster I was so hungry. By the time I finished dinner and slugged down a Mountain Dew (bad decision) I got into the hot tub just as the kids got out… meaning I didn’t have to constantly avoid their cannon balls.
I’ll sleep well tonight.
