I feel like I am finally resting from my busy weekend.
18 miles on Saturday went great! We all met in a town and ran 18 miles together. Afterwards Julie's friend invited us over to soak in her hot tub. Except it wasn't hot it was COLD. See it stays outside and she only heats it when she has company, so the majority of the time it stays cold. So, we put our legs in. Basically thighs down. OH MY GOODNESS it was freezing. Not sure if anyone has tried this, but it feels like sharp pains in your legs. I was the first to jump in. I stayed 1.5 min and then jumped out for about 30 seconds. Then I got back in for about 4 minutes so I got in about 5 total. It was awful, but the good thing was it worked! I had some tightness after I finished the run. That tightness was gone after we did the ice bath.
They say an ice bath for 5 minutes works wonders. I'm a believer!
Yesterday we did the Superbowl party. We were going to stay around the house, but my sister invited us over for Fajitas so we decided to join them.
The game was good....We were rooting for Arizona though...Oh well!
This week I have a taper week...YEAH! We are doing 10 miles for the long run!
It is just gearing us up for the 20 miler I have in 2 weeks!
I'm off to get some work accomplished!
