Day After 3rd Marathon

My body has definitely adapted to running marathons: I have surprisingly few aches when I first stand on my feet. I definitely have some tightness in both legs and a blister aggravates the ball of my left foot, but the more significant pains (right arch and ankle) seem to have faded. If anything, my upper body is more sore than my lower, probably more from sleeping in an awkward position than yesterday's race.

I would consider going for a run right now, but I know better. My body needs time to recover, even if I do not feel that to be the case. I could use a bit more sleep though...was on such a high yesterday that I did not take a post-race nap. I ended up staying awake until my normal bedtime!

Now that I think about it, I feel almost exactly as I did the day after marathon #2!
