    im a little late, but just wanted to say congrats on your second half ironman! all triathletes are incredible to me that they can run after swimming and biking all that ways.

    The biggest race I’ve ever done is a half marathon and the recovery wasn’t too big of a deal for me. My parents gave me a certificate for a deep tissue massage though which was amazing πŸ™‚ Maddie looked like she did the half ironman with you she’s so pooped!

    Pedicures are my favorite post race treat! The funniest was when we went after the warrior dash (like 2 days later) and I still had mud under my toe nails… I was like oops, sorry!

    After big hikes, I always have a massage scheduled. I usually take one or two days off, and then spend a week doing yoga and light walking.

    I love it when my dog is completely pooped too from a day at daycare. He’s extra cuddly! And I’ve been craving walnuts since seeing them in your breakfast bowls, so I finally remembered to buy them! One of my favorite nuts.

    My biggest race was the Flying Pig Half this year. The day of the race my feet swelled up so big it hurt to walk around. The day after I did a lot of walking around the house and backyard, as well as a nice hot shower.

    I’ve only ever done one big race – the chicago marathon this year, and I went out to dinner with my family, got myself some froyo and took a few days off. But I was back into running quickly because I missed it so much, but now I’m having IT band problems… probably should have rested more…

    Frozen yogurt is a necessity (in my book) when it come to race recovery!!

    Aww, I love when my dogs are worn out and just want to snuggle! πŸ™‚ I would love to do a triathalon one day but swimming outside of a pool scares me. I’m a wimp!

    My only big distance race thus far was a half marathon. The race was on a Sunday, and I took all of Monday and Tuesday off after that. I ran again on Wednesday, but then rested again Thursday and Friday because I had a 5K on Saturday, and I didn’t want to push it too much. I also bought myself a gigantic slice of triple or something like that chocolate cake from Whole Foods πŸ™‚ Annnnd I bought myself a custom 13.1 ring off Etsy. I always try to do something nice to reward myself after a race — that’s half the fun of running, as far as I’m concerned πŸ˜‰

    I don’t have a set post race recovery routine. I’ve gotten a massage once and loved it but this time I’m trying to do a reverse taper for 2 weeks to ease back into some high mileage.
