The next day I woke up at a normal time and dropped Ralph off at work before heading home and getting organized for the day. I knew I would need to roll again and stretch and I did that. I waited for Damian's flight to land and went to pick him up at his hotel in the OC before heading to Disneyland.
The drive took an hour and then 15 min to Disneyland and 15 min to get to te park so it was about 1 when we arrived. I was able to get Ralph's parking refunded from the day before and it was put on a gift card (even better!)
I wore my shoes and brought my medal to get a castle picture since I did t get to do that to day before.
Overall the park was insanely crowded. Such long waits so we didn't do much but the walking around helped my legs so much.
We ate lunch at flo's and had a cone for dinner. I've been. Craving both of these and the little bit of carbs I did have (roll with lunch and a cone for dinner) did upset my stomach but I was fine.
The best news of them all: we planned a trip to WDW in May from 22-30!! AP rates are cheap (all star sports is 95 a night) and we have (maybe) convinced Ralph to go too! He needs to see if he can take 3-4 days off. If he could come I would SO HAPPY. I think he would love it (Disneyland is growing on him) but Damian and I are excited to spend many days at WDW to be able to experience so much we usually can't do in short trips.
Also I convinced Damian to do the wine and dine half marathon!!! Yay for planning more trips.
I got home around 9 as couldn't sleep so I planned our entire WDW trip: parks and restaurant reservations! I didn't sleep much but I wasn't too sore.
The next morning I did a 2 mile training run and it did hurt a bit but I just slowed down. My training run on thursday-3 miles-was much better but still pretty slow.
Overall my post race strategy worked well. It also bodes well for princess half marathon weekend which is 1 month away!!
What are your post race traditions? When do you do your next training run?
