Marathon Recovery: Week 1 Day 5

This week has been a mess beginning first thing on Monday. Our sweet doggie became sick and we have been at the vet every day this week getting tests, meds (and changing meds), IV fluids, etc for her. She finally appears to be on the road to recovery, thank goodness. Needless to say when Coco is sick our world stops and we shift everything around to make sure she gets the best care possible. I wasn’t able to get in cross training this week like I had planned, but no worries.

Tonight I did 15 minutes easy on the bike to warm up and then 4 miles recovery on the treadmill. Everything feels really good! It felt like taper in reverse, I was holding back so not to give into how nice the run felt and go too quickly.

I hope to spend the weekend getting everything back in order with the house and work. Oh and I ordered marathon pictures! I will get the posted when I receive them.
