I took it extremely easy last week with Tampa on the horizon. Just tried to practice 3:50 pace on the treadmill and break in the shoes a bit as well as keep my limbs limber!
Tuesday- AM: 5 miles at pace on the treadmill with Daisy at the new gym
Lunch: Yoga with Daisy. Lots of sun salutations. Not quite the light stretching workout I was looking for, hips and shoulders were sore until Thursday, damn those planks!
Thursday- 3.1 Miles on the treadmill practicing pace with 6*20 seconds strides thrown to loosen up the legs and keep the boredom at bay
Friday- Rested and bummed around Tampa
Saturday- Super easy 2ish mile run and lots of walking back and forth around Tampa
Sunday- 26.2 of fun pacing miles
Now I have two weeks of recovery and then 8 weeks of focused training for Boston. The legs are a bit stiff but walking is normal, a little gingerly on the steps as usual. (I am actually pleasantly surprised since I did not get in much pavement time since JFK.) One monster blister that is going to have to go. Next time I go for the pedicure I am not letting them take away my calluses, it is apparent that I needed those!
