I decided to take a week off after the Vernonia Marathon. My right IT band was bothering me after the marathon but I wasn’t as sore as I’d thought I would be. I was happy I wasn’t wobbling at work on Monday and I could still go up/down the stairs like normal. By Tuesday, I didn’t feel the pain in my IT band when I walked so that was good. I guess it wasn’t a full week off since I ran on Sunday. But it was nice taking a break after 20 weeks of marathon training. All that hard work and training sure did pay off. You can read my recap of the Vernonia Marathon where I got an awesome PR and my first BQ by clicking on my finish line pic below.

I did get some walking in here and there. I walked to the park while my little guy rode his bike.

Hope everyone had a happy Easter! IMG_3817
