Tenderized

During every marathon training cycle, there seems to come a point when your legs feel like they've been marinated and pounded, thoroughly ready to be charred. During today's 80 minute recovery run (probably a bit long for a post-track workout recovery run) my legs felt a bit tenderized. Hmm, I'm hoping that some extra protein, water, rest, and foam rolling will help them recover prior to Saturday's LONG pace run :O

Note: My Memu (maternal grandmother), who was supremely athletic & had great endurance for her age (she loved long swims and walks in her 70s and 80s), always referred to muscles as meat. She would joke with me that my strong legs would make delicious steaks :)
