How do you recover after a marathon?
That actually is a great question and it definitely applies to me because I am still recovering from my New York City marathon from three weeks ago. So, for us, we usually take two weeks off completely no running. And I took two weeks off this time round. And then I started running, I ran the first time, two days in a row, and then took a day off then actually run every other day. So right now, we are at the in the middle of week 4, since I run New York, City marathon, and I've only ran five times. Now, I will say the typically, it's just a two weeks off and then, you know, start running, maybe like, you know the whole week, you know, everyday running for miles or two every other day. And also, you know, I try to just like do things that are not running related, you know, like take a vacation, go visit family and friends and, you know, get, you know, massages and try to rest as much as I can. And I mean, resting from America Marathon or recovering from American is not just physical. It's also mental child. Try to do things that doesn't text. Mentally. And I mean, that's a little challenging these days as a mom just because like, you know, my daughter is always needing me and so I try my best to recover but yeah, like I think the first couple days actually when I get home, I literally didn't even get out of the house. Now, I'm not saying that that's normal, but that's what, you know, I decided to do just because I was super tired and it been like a very intense. Five weeks of training leading up to New York City marathon. I also tend to watch a lot of movies, you know, during my recovery and a couple of years ago, I started crocheting and I didn't really have a lot of time when I was training for my Marathon. So I started getting back to crochet and so I made a few beings during my recovery watched a lot of movies, you know. And so it's been just fun to just have a downtime. And I'm actually still having downtime, you know, for the rest of this month, I mean, until four weeks just because American takes a lot out of you and I I want to make sure that when I get back to my next marathon, I'm motivated. You know, physically, I'm ready to go and because I mean it's gonna be a long build.
