Yesterday's F^3 Half Marathon was a lot of fun, and I'll be posting my full recap tomorrow. The weather was pretty great for a January day in Chicago, I saw a lot of folks I knew at the race, and I finished, despite the pain in my leg.
Even though I had to slow down due to my leg, I still managed a PR, finishing in 2:27:11. I would have had an even better finish time if I hadn't needed to stop to use the restroom at one of the aid stations in the second half of the race (trust me, it was a necessary stop).
Today's focus has been on rest and recovery: I went for a walk this morning, took a nap this afternoon, made sure to stretch and foam roll, and I've been icing my legs (my left hip and knee are hurting from overcompensating for my injured right leg during the race). Now that the race is complete, I'll be taking it easy and focusing on cross training for the near future.
I'm looking forward to a hopefully quick and full recovery and many more awesome runs (and hopefully another PR or two) in 2016.
