I made it out alive (Read 786 times)

    I'm not sore at all. I feel better after this marathon than I ever have after a marathon. Pssh...Monkeys.
    I feel the same way actually.

    Thunder smash!

      I feel the same way actually.
      Yea, that's how we roll.

      How do you keep your feet on the ground, when you know you were born to fly?

       

      Just a girl who runs.

        I think the constant changing of the course varies the muscle use enough so that there's not as much soreness. I'm always the least sore after the Monkey of any marathons I've run. My worst pain was after Chicago...flat courses are death. Congrats to everyone on an idiotic run yesterday! By the way...did anyone else see that chick that had a radio blasting music strapped to her? WTF?

          Yep. I was very surprised that the monkeys let her get away with that.

            There's much truth to this. I have more muscles that are in pain, but no muscles are particularly overwhelmed by pain. Aside from the enormous blister area, I can walk normally. MTA: Why the hell do my arms and shoulders hurt so much?

              You don't do enough upper body strength training, my guess.

                    Surprisingly enough... me, too.

                      Yeah, I was expecting more quad pain. Feel pretty good today - certainly WAY less sore than NYC the other week. Perhaps standing around in the cold afterward for a couple hours was akin to an ice bath?

                        Hey Drew! I've been wondering how things turned out for you? How about a race report?
                        Loooong race report up

                            I am in the most pain I've had after a race. Might have something to do with how I've avoided hills the past few months. That and my mileage hasn't been great. Oh well, live & learn, and hobble. Smile

                                I'll live, as long as my husband stops trying to push me over when I walk by him, he's a jackass. Big grin
