First cold bath!!

on August 26, 2012

Morning!!  I hope this Sunday morning finds you with a smile!

 

 

Yesterday was a FULL day…..I got up early to start my day.  I love doing that!  I am normally not one to sleep in, so I guess that would make me a morning person.  🙂   I do occasionally like to sleep in, but for the most part I am up and at em!  Maybe I feel like I am going to miss something!!

Work went by preeeetty fast, and before I knew it, it was noon.  I headed over to my friend’s house (Diahann) to use her treadmill for my long run.  I don’t know if every person that runs deals with runners anxiety, but sometimes going into my long run I worry whether or not my legs will hold up!  They did!

I pushed out 4.3 miles and called it good.

 

 

For my pre-run fuel I chomped on one of these…

Yum and yum!

 

 

I am currently enjoying this for Breakfast:

 

 

Once I got home yesterday, I thought about taking a nap, but they lawn needed tending to, so I put on my “work” clothes and went outside.  It was pretty hot and humid yesterday, so it was a little tough to get through.  I ended up only doing just over half of they lawn and put the mower up.  I will finish today.  Maybe..:)

One of my neighbors, who is a super-cool good friend stopped by and we made plans to go walking.  I am not sure how many miles we did, but it was nice to fellowship and hang out. 😉

I did my first cold bath!!!!!   Um, let’s just say that by the end of doing all these activities on my legs, they were kind of hurting when I walked into the house to call it a night.  I didn’t put ice in the bath, but I did just use cold water.  Oh my goodness!!!  Once I got acclimated, it wasn’t so bad.  It’s funny, as soon as I submerged my legs, they instantly felt better.  Hmm? 😉

This morning my legs are bit sore, but not as bad as I thought they would be.

 

Welp, I am off to get ready for church!  Have a great day!

  1. I absolutely adore just walking with friends, I would do that a lot in college. I miss it!

  2. Try running 20 miles outside in the snow and then taking an ice bath w/actual ice. It isn’t fun!

  3. 4.3…another longer run! 🙂 and so much cooler PR than however much you could bench-press. 😉
    i hope u have a wonderful time and church and rest of ur sunday!

  4. I’m glad you had such a great day 🙂 And a great run! Cold water does do wonders for muscle recovery, but I find it much easier in summer than in winter 😛
