Running longer and faster… a few thoughts…

Rotterdam M Day: 2:57:25…

Double-Wow…After unhappy stomach yesterday and this morning, carbo loading plans in the rubbish-bin…it required a serious change of plans… Turned out well… Second sub3! Feels good 🙂

Need some resting now…Stomach really not in the game and would need a serious butt-massage right now (I know, sounds funny but it feels like cramping… So no, not funny!). Feeling a but hungry too, which is quite unusual so close after a marathon… Will start food-hunting after legs-resting 😉

Lots of thanks for constant support and kind words of encouragements. This feels so great to have crossed the finish line, once more and with a alike (I think…).

* Quick body check: apart from the butt-cramps (seriously, where does these come from??), feeling fine. Of course tired legs, little sensitive heels, but after this distance, this is expected, right?

  3. Duktiga K! Fantastiskt av dig! Det är många lopp för din del, kul! Japp, nu blir det cykel för mig i veckan. Tyvärr känns det som det kommer bli segdraget men jag håller tummarna. Se till att återhämta dig nu! Kram!

    • Tack, Tove! Att springa lopp är så himla roligt 🙂
      Inte säkert det blir cykling denna vecka, men så snart jag kan det då cyklar jag åt dig 😉
      Lite återhämtning först…

  4. Congratulations!! I noticed booty cramps or rather just plain aching booty after increasing my mileage and not doing as much strength training. 🙂

    • Thanks!
      Well, you maybe have a point here (regarding the booty cramps). But I was thinking it might have been linked to “too much” rehab exercises…
      btw it was gone by the end of race day 🙂
      (and will have to ensure strength training is back on the menu…)
