Great for recovery! Compression = happy muscles & legs
Boston Marathon Completed! Recovery underway!
We finished in 3:30 as planned....next challenge: finishing the 2010 Big Sur Marathon which will also finish our Boston2BigSur Challenge.
26.2 miles of up & down challenging course in Boston........check!
We are half way done with the Boston 2 Big Sur Challenge and headed to Big Sur on some really tired & sore legs. (can't remember legs being this sore from Boston last year....the 3 days of expo legs standing on the hard cement floors of the convention center took it's toll). Boston was amazing, but we both had cramping in the last few miles - it was a struggle at minimum!
We actually emailed Dean Karnazes to see if he could give us some tips on recover! Ice baths, Arnica and compression socks....done, done and done. Still having a hard time walking and bending down to collect things that alwasy seem to drop on the floor after a marathon.
Big Sur is allegedly one "gnarly" course - hillier than Boston. What on earth were we thinking. Our plan is to simply finish - cross the finish line in one format or another....run, walk, crawl...even considered pushing each other in a BOB Jogging Stroller (too bad no strollers allowed).
Off to the expo - swing by and say Hello and let us know if you have any tips for speedy marathon recovery - 48 hours till the gun goes off!
Speaking of recovery - we are running a special at runningskirts.com this weekend - FREE Swift Sox Compression Socks with any purchase of $100.
