Recovery

Maddie’s home!

I picked her up from doggie overnight camp yesterday afternoon. The dogs were playing outside when I pulled up and I could see her adorable little tail wagging through the fence. I called her name and you could tell she recognized my voice because she went nutzo trying to figure out where I was. The poor girl was jumping all over the fence trying to find her mommy.

She got a good report – it’s always a good feeling when the staff won’t stop raving about your little one – and couldn’t wait to hop in the car and head home.

This morning Maddie and I soaked up some of the amazing fall weather with a 2 mile walk outside. After two days at doggie camp and a good long walk, I’m not sure I’ll be able to pull her away from the couch for the rest of the day.

She is WIPED. I love her when she’s like this – so cute and extra cuddly. :)

The walk was exactly what my legs needed, I’m thinking they’ll also need an easy yoga class this evening. Day two of post-half ironman recovery is going pretty good. I’m trying to take it easy and just enjoy a couple of days of rest before slowly working my way back into other activities. There’s no need to rush. :)

Since it was so chilly this morning, I decided a bowl of oats would be the perfect meal to warm me up.

In the mix:

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • chia seeds
  • cinnamon
  • vanilla whey protein powder

On top:

  • 1/2 apple
  • cinnamon
  • walnuts
  • peanut butter

Totally hit the spot.

Time to get to work!

What’s your typical recovery plan following a big race? X amount of days of rest? Massages? Triple chocolate sundae from your favorite ice cream shop? ;)

I plan to treat myself to a pedicure tonight or tomorrow. My little toes deserve a little pampering.
