I ran to work today. First run since the ultra. A seven mile round trip, and I felt really strong both ways. Nary a twinge from the muscles. I was quietly pleased.
Work colleagues have been impressed although I wasn't able to rest on my laurels the whole time:
Me: It was an ultra run.
Colleague: So thats what, 75 miles?
M: Erm no, 35.
C: Oh, well, that's still very impressive.
Oh hum. Something to aim for!
