I have been in recovery this week from the half marathon and the recovery was painful at first. The first half of this week was downright excruciating. However, two trips to the chiropractor, one 1.5-hour massage, and a few yoga sessions later and I feel much better.
Yesterday I went for a light swim and a minor mountain bike ride. They were both very nice.
My chiropractor gave me some very good advice that I should already know: “When you start to ramp up, make sure you get more massages.” Right. Funny how one forgets something so simple as self-care when one gets ridiculously busy. So now I have been reminded and I can now get on it!
