Sounds fun! I used to live over there, so I love that I can picture where you are running!

I've been sleeping like a zombie since the marathon. But last night, my chest cold turned into a dry cough. So I coughed all night, sleep sucked.
How's your legs?

lysa - there are so many great running routes around here. i love it. i noticed you like to run in millcreek canyon. that is the best!
lily - i haven't been sleeping well at all for the past week. first it was the pre-race nightmares then it was the post-race nightmares. finally last night i crashed for nine hours straight. that never happens. it felt so nice. and the dreams were good, too :)
i am sorry to hear that you are still sick with that cold. just keep getting good rest, and eat another cinnamon roll or two.
as for my legs, they feel great. i don't know why. it took me a full week to recover from des news, and even after that i was still sluggish. so this is a welcome change for me post-marathon. i'm just trying to stay in shape for the layton 5k coming up. i have so much anger for this distance right now. GRRR! i want a PR. you need to come run it with me if you are feeling up to it. it's on my birthday, which is just a few days after yours, so we could celebrate! do you think this comment is long enough yet?

Nice to see such a wonderful recovery! I'd love to run a 7:41 for 9.5 miles tapered and feeling good! :) Gotta love a good sleep/crash. I'm glad you finally got some real rest. Now to punch it on that darned 5K!!
I love that you admit you have anger for the 5k. I wish I was in shape enough to run with you. I would love to break 18 myself some day!

I have actually only run the canyon once but it was so much fun! All down hill and beautiful. I'm going to run it tomorrow bc I want to do it again with all of the leaves before they are gone.
Do you do alot of 5k's?

Allie, did you get a comp for the Layton 5K? I looked it up and saw the price (late registration cost, but even the early fee is outrageous) and nearly had a heart attack. I figure a 5K is worth 10 bucks top for a low key one, maybe 20 if it is a big one. Then again, I paid way too much to run the carlsbad 5000 this spring but that will be a one time thing for the experience. But I will sit out Layton.
what are you thinking for your next marathon? Ogden? UV? something at sea level?

wow 7:41 pace one week post marathon

Nice pace so early in the recovery. Good luck with the 5k.
From Lily on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 14:50:12 from 22.214.171.124
I am totally PO'd at the 5k as well. That last one (minuteman) would have been perfect for both of us to chance it. Why did the course have to be a little short? I am so not happy every time I think about it.
And yep, I am still planning on running it with you. I will whip my eating back into shape and get outside this week to prep for it. Or else I might turn into cinnamon bun death....
Where do I sign up for this race? It's probably on the running race website... I need stop being so dependent on Allie from the block for help. Grow up Lily, grow up. Seessh
Oh, glad your legs feel good. And super glad you slept well last night. Lack of sleep is seriously the worst. WORST!

if you guys want a really good 5K, the tremonton turkey trot 2nd week of November is perfect. the cost is one dollar- yes, one dollar, including a t-shirt. the course is perfectly flat and perfectly accurate with no traffic at all. a good group of local high school kids (16-17 minute runners) come out so there are some fast runners for motivation. they give age group awards of turkeys to the age group winners. I ran it last year and had a great time. My only worry is, I don't really think it is sporting to go back and accept a turkey as it is a local race with local people who deserve the awards, and with a price tag of one dollar I am just grateful they do it. If I run it this year again (I have a friend in Tremonton which is why I ran it last year) I will tell the RD ahead of time that I will decline any age group awards, just run for fun and a time and to try to PR. If any of you want to run it let me know. here is my description of the race, which has a link to the course:
