Yesterday's race was so much fun that I added a few more snowshoe races to my race calendar. It was definitely good training. It took me outside of my comfort zone and reminded me what it is like to work hard. My legs aren't bad today, but I do have an overall general fatigue thing going on.
I am putting my long run off until tomorrow due to bad road conditions. Also, it gives me a day to recover from yesterday's snowshoe race. Since I plan to do another snowshoe race next Saturday I am adjusting this weeks training plan so I will do my next long run on Monday, too. Having Mondays off from work is coming in handy.
This morning I ran 5 miles at a relaxed pace on the treadmill. I felt surprisingly good and the miles went by fast. The only muscles that feel a little tender are my upper hamstrings and butt. Snowshoe running makes me lift my legs higher than I normally would and it really worked those muscles. I'll do the stability ball and weights tonight.
