In case you missed it, this week I posted recaps from the Goofy Challenge as well as a product review from Nite Ize – if you do any running in the dark, you need to check out their INOVA STS headlamp!

The last two weeks were primarily focused on rest and recovery after the Goofy Challenge (does anyone else always get sick after a marathon?!?).  I did try out a pool class at the gym I work at which I actually LOVED!  It was a great workout and definitely something I’m going to try to get to regularly!

Now that the Goofy Challenge is over Jason and I are both contemplating what our next race is going to be – I literally am not registered for anything right now!  We’re considering a few different spring half marathons in our area and to be honest I’m sort of tempted to do another full this spring!

What’s next on your race calendar?

How far out do you plan/ choose your races?

  1. YES! Never fails. I came home sick from Goofy, too. With the combination of lack of sleep + pushing your body through hours of physical agony + drastic temperature change + germ-infested theme parks, I don’t know how anybody DOESN’T get sick.

    I’m in the same boat as you right now. It feels like I’ve never NOT had another race to train for, and right now, we have absolutely nothing on the horizon! However, Todd is working on getting me to sign up for the NJ Marathon. After NYCM and Goofy, I was kind of looking forward to a break…but, at the same time, I definitely have the “itch” to take on another full ASAP. *Sigh* ;-D

  2. Yes, everyone else gets sick after a marathon. Someone on twitter even says it has a name – “marathon flu”. In my opinion, it’s our immune system being suppressed from the running and then the germ filled airplane ride home! Hope you’re feeling great this week!
