I miss writing my blog!
It’s Wednesday, 3 days after the marathon and what is there to say?
My body is almost back to normal, I can do stairs, sit and stand with grace now, only a little achiness left in my quads…..
Was due to be having a sports massage this evening, but that might be cancelled. Am starting to think a sit in the sunshine with a G+T may have pretty much the same effect!
Have remembered a couple of bits from the marathon I meant to put in my original post – firstly a man who told me in a ‘come on my son’ kind of a way that ‘Emma you OWN this race’ and secondly after the finish a young girl told me that I looked ‘snazzy’ – I took that as a complement…… Oh and the official marathon photos are slowly being tagged – so far I am either in the back of other people’s photos or in the photo but with someone’s arm in my face. There are 3 reasonable ones – 1 ruined as I have my eyes shut! The other 2 are better but I look like I’m in a lot of pain…. Think I’m going to stick with my sunny happy photos taken by my friends!
I had been feeling a very happy, calm serenity since the race – that went this morning after a phone call with my mum…. but off to Barcelona tomorrow – never been and am very excited about it. Not packed or prepared in any way – don’t even know what the weather is like there at the mo!
