Ran a marathon on Sunday as a qualifier for an ultra I’m running mid April. Goal was just to go sub 3:20 to get a B-Batch seeding so I didn’t push hard and ran easily within myself the whole way.
Legs felt fine after, albeit a little tired. Today is a complete rest day and contemplating a Ramp test tomorrow so I can start another SSB phase.
Having said that a marathon is a marathon and there will probably be residual fatigue in the legs…Should I have a couple easy recovery days and ramp test later in the week rather or just hit it tomorrow and see what happens?
