Our son finished another phase in his training and we had the opportunity to see him for a brief visit before he departed on chartered bus. He is bound for Pensacola, Fl for a few months and then who knows from there. I miss him but I am far prouder of the man he has become and the Marine he is!! Now I just need to figure out how and when our next trip to see him will be. You know I am planning!!!
Recovery has gone great. I ran on Saturday and Sunday. Both were not real long runs and I tried to maintain an easy pace. Being patient is not always easy and if my legs had been on board I would have picked the pace up and ran much faster. Still I was happy to just be outside enjoying the weather.
Next week I will resume and pick up in training where Scott is for the upcoming Disney Marathon. One thing I do know is that it SUCKS having to be more "aware" of the calories intake now. I have to keep reminding myself that I am not running 50 plus mile weeks and can not just eat whatever I want. Total Suckage!!
