...said Shannon as we came out of our yoga class today. My sentiments exactly. I have finally realized that, although I can successfully pull off a 5K at age 36, the recovery takes quite a bit longer than it used to. I have run several different races of various distances over the past few months. Unlike in college, when I could compete in a race, get 5 hours of sleep that night and happily run 15 miles the next day, it now takes a solid 3-4 days for my muscles to bounce back and my fatigue to die off. All I have to say is this; at least I'm still out there with the young and spritely and enjoying it while I can. And to those who are feeling their age lately, so what if it takes longer to recover? We still get bragging rites!
