After the 3M half marathon last Sunday, I had some MAJOR aches in my left shin. I waited a few days before running again and then had a completely miserable treadmill run last Wednesday. Thursday I took it easy. I went to a BodyPump class and did 20 minutes on the crossramp. Friday? Nothing. Saturday? First weekend up to the mountains for snowboarding!!

We had a small "party" for the Superbowl, and instead of running I ate a lot of chips, had a few brats and beers.

Then comes Monday. My leg is feeling good (phew), but I am TIRED. I feel out of shape. Normally I try to get in 8+ miles on a Monday, with at least an hour of hills. This one I did manage "some" hills, but BARELY scraped by with 5 miles. And they were 5 very MISERABLE miles.
What did I get myself into with running a marathon in less than 2 weeks???
