I wanted to say that the morning after running those gnarly 11 miles, I am feeling fabulous. No major aches or pains to report...just a bit tired in the legs, of course.
I got a splendid nights rest, and am ready to do some upper body work with my trainer, then hit the pavement tomorrow for my regular training run.
So, if this finds you in the throes of your own training, be encouraged! Pain comes, but then goes away. Discipline endures. Keep at it! I know I will.
Carpe Diem! Go on out and Sieze Your Day!
