The 1/2 marathon last Sunday really slowed down my running for the week. I haven't run that hard for that long in a really, really long time and my body reminded me of that fact...often. I was pretty sore for a couple of days but only took one day off from running. My legs were tired and heavy all week.
So, like any sane runner would do I signed up for another race. This time I would enter the crazy world of trail running (finally). I entered the Xterra Merrimack River 10M Trail Race in Andover, MA on Saturday 4/12. By trail racing standards I was told this would be one of the easier ones.
