Well we are 28 hours post marathon.
How do I feel. Drowsy & lazy. Slight stiffness of the muscles. Stairs are no problem. Taken the dogs for good walk. Done the housework.
Okay – I know – how do my feet feel? Absolutely fine, would not even realise I run barefoot, let alone ran a marathon yesterday. No tenderness, no bruising, no pain at all. My knees do not hurt. My hips are not even aching today. My left leg that had been giving me issues for the past couple of weeks, was no issue yesterday and today is still feeling fine.
Oh, and I reckon I do not use my toes much when running, as my smaller 4 toes do not even look like they ever connected with the ground…
So I am I injury free? Well no. I have injuries in an area I was very unprepared for! I believe this is called runners chafe..
