And...Today I am Sore!

I'll admit that I didn't know what to expect as far as soreness or recovery time from a half-marathon.  I'll take it as a sign that I must have left it all out there, because today my legs (calves mostly) are pretty damn sore.  I'd go as far as to say they are as sore as after Miami 70.3, except my quads and hammies are in much better shape this time. 

I tried to mostly take it easy yesterday after the race, but not only does that not come naturally to me, I also have a lot more to do to finish packing up my apartment for our big move to NY (more on that soon).  Compression sleeves and lots of ice helped mask the race's aftermath, and I even went to the gym for an upper body and core workout.  But, this morning I was reminded of yesterday's effort with my first wobbly step out of bed. 

I'll ease back into some workouts over the next couple of days, with some light swimming and biking, and probably an easy run later in the week.  I'm sure by Sunday I'll be ready to go for my trail run 10k.
