Post-marathon recovery matters

In last few weeks before my first marathon, I hardly missed any training sessions. I did all the right things I knew during my tapering period. And give it my best on the race day.

What I really ignored was post-marathon recovery. I was on holiday and visiting different places. The day after the marathon I was suffering from runner's knee which required some rest. But I decided to give paragliding a try! In the fourth day I went for a 5 km run and ran another 8km the day after. What I ended up was a sore knee which I could not run on for a week or so (That doesn't mean that I didn't try.)

Now the pain is over and the new training is due to start tomorrow. Stay tuned.
