Ran St. George today. Horrible weather conditions. Got to Mile 13 at 2:00 and was feeling good, then cold and wind and wet caused muscles to get sore and stiff. By Mile 17 had to stop every mile and stretch and get Icy Hot. All in all, a frustrating race day. Mentally I felt so strong, but my body just wasn't cooperating. All that training and all the anticipation for a frustrating 4:23 finish. The good news is that I was only sore for about 2 days and on day 3 wanted to get back to training, which means my recovery was faster than my 3 other marathons. I am hoping to get hard core with speedwork this winter and qualify for Boston next summer. Had a baby 5 months ago, but on race day had no C-section soreness which makes me think I am almost completely recovered from that too.
