Post-Marathon Recovery

This schedule lists specific activities for the days following the Chicago Marathon. As many people also target the Schaumburg Turkey Trot Half Marathon at the end of November, the schedule includes training runs to prepare you for that. If you are not doing the Turkey Trot, you can still use the schedule, but ignore the comment “@half marathon pace”. For the first several days after the marathon, maintain a high carbohydrate diet, but still take in protein and ‘good fats’.

Meeting Location

This map shows the meeting location for Saturday long runs. Enter Busse Woods via the Golf Road entrance (at stoplight), just East of Rte 53. Look for the bathroom building on the right. Plenty of parking available.
