The run started out well enough, but it takes a race to remind you how easy easy runs are supposed to be. About 10 minutes I slowed right down and tried to enjoy the run, but each step was a little more difficult than the last. I felt lethargic and heavy and uncoordinated. I cannot attribute all of this to the race yesterday, but it is a wake up call to the toll that the body takes when racing hard. I haven't eaten that well today and I was not great on the hydration. As well, I didn't eat soon enough after the race yesterday. It is all about the details, and I didn't pay enough attention to them yesterday, resulting in a bit of a race hangover today.
However, I did find a cool post on Boston when I got home and it got me excited to continue to train for it!
