|I look total crazy, but I love this picture!|
I'm linking up with Marcia for the April Runfessions.
Also linking up with Holly and Tricia for their Weekly Wrap post.
Anyway, enough with my life ramblings, and on to running/ training ramblings.
After work, I did some light yoga and rolling to ease some of the soreness... while watching Glee.
Tuesday- Baseball and a walk around the field to keep the legs moving.

Wednesday and First Runfession- I didn't do well at the recovery stage of a Marathon.
I was feeling very well rested, and my legs were not sore anymore! neither were my hips or my elbow (my imaginary elbow pain, anyway). Told myself that this was to be an easy Zumba week, because Denise has not done a Wicked Wednesday zumba in over a year, and thought myself safe. And the last Wednesday zumba I had done, I barely broke a sweat.
I was very excited, and feeling over confident, then Denise walks in and tells us that she was messing around with the playlist and changed some songs. By the third song, my legs started to feel heavy, and by song 5, my lungs were not happy with me. When it came time for the squat song, my quads were not at all in agreement with any sort of squat, and I ended up doing that song mostly just standing with knees slightly bent. And this song almost killed me.
I was dead tired after 1 hour of zumba! So told myself to calm the fun down, and keep resting.
Thursday - Baseball was cancelled (Thank you, Marathon Rest Gods!) as we had pouring rain at the time practice was to start.
My son learned to ride his bike without training wheels! He was very proud of himself! It really is such an awesome moment!

Friday- This was our first Friday since December that we didn't have to run a crazy amount of miles on my Friday off! We didn't know what to do with ourselves. So we went to breakfast, and then to lunch. Then we did a light 1 mile walk on the local paved track.
Second Runfession: I don't like buying running magazines. I find that their articles to be out of my budget, dreams, and goals. I will browse them at the grocery store or the book store, but rarely do any of them grab my attention enough to want to take it home. Except for Friday, I let myself be sucked in by Women's Running. I blame you Barnes and Noble! And regretted it when I got home. I read two articles and got bored.
|Can't be trusted at Barnes and Noble, picked up a running magazine and ANOTHER book!|
Saturday- OMG! I was allowed to be in charge of the dugout for the Saturday baseball game, and I will admit that I LOVED being in charge of all the kids ! I have control issues.
After the baseball game, we went to the park, and played catching, batting and pitching. I want my son to practice those, but at the same time, I want him to still have fun with the game.
Roger and I dragged ourselves out for a short and easy 2 mile run. I made many different offers to Roger to talk him out of the running. I seriously offered to buy him cookies, ice cream, sushi, even offered the unthinkable ... to make dinner all week! He turned them all down. So we ran.
Light yoga in a random small garden we found in Camp Hill
Third Runfession: One day last month, I spent 85% of my work day reading running blog post, instead of working. It put me behind a whole day... but I enjoyed reading the blogs so much, that I don't at all regret it!
Fourth Runfession: We are going to Penn State for my brother's graduation this Saturday, and I was being a Runhole, and trying to run a 5K before leaving for the graduation. Until I stopped myself, and forced myself to forget about the 5K.
Favorite thing somebody told me this week :
"We now know that you can run from Kennett Square to West Chester, and it would take you almost 5 hours! but we know you can do it!" My sister explaining to my mom how far a Marathon is.
I am completely in love with this song! Found it on Thursday and can't stop listening to it! I find Roco's voice hypnotizing, but I've been in love with Roco for years... so no surprise.
Any random song that you are loving?
What mistakes have you done while recovering?
