Today was rest day for me.
Usually I don't rest of Monday but this week I got to adjust my plan with the family schedule, I am a mom first.
This week is week 11 of my training plan. Half Marathon #2 is almost here. I am glad it was not yesterday because it was not my day for great running. I gotta to say the ice bath I took was a huge success, no pain today! I am doing this again this coming weekend after my last long run. I am also going to rest on Saturday, I hope this will help with my 12 miles on Sunday. I'd rather do a good 12 then go for an extra 3 miles on Saturday and repeat a crappy run like I had yesterday.

Today was the Boston Marathon and I followed the race of all the people that were featured in this post here
Everybody did fantastic!
Jim: had a PR in Boston! How great is that!
Beth at SUAR was amazing and ran the marathon post injury with a great time of 4:08!
EMZ ran a speedy race after having a "TAPER" of over 70 miles last week.
