Okay, I'm turning to you more-experienced runners for advice here. Is it normal for me to be this exhausted after my first HM?? I have been soooooooo tired all week! All I want to do is sleep! I'm going to yoga today, which will be my first workout since the race. My tri schedule called for swimming on Monday and swimming and cycling yesterday. I did neither. :\ I was just too tired. Part of me feels like I should take a few days off, but another part of me is frustrated with myself and the fact that I haven't swam in weeks. I really need to get my rear to the pool.
I'm still hobbling around. The left calf hates me again. I made an appointment to see Dr Jesse Walden again for Friday. That should help. Saturday morning I have tri practice and we are cycling 20 miles and running 3. Sunday is the Trolley Run, which is a 4 mile race. If I don't make it to the pool again this week, is it going to kill me? Is it okay for me to rest for a few days? Will swimming help me work out some of the tension I'm feeling? I'm torn... Any advice?
