Dramatic title, no?!? Hahha anyway, the title sorta says it all.
But first…I ran a very speedy (for me) 6 miler at the River.
I really felt I struggled though; like I fought hard for every quarter mile, you know? Anyway, I pushed though and ALMOST met my goal of all 9 minute miles. But my legs felt like lead. Did I mention I wore my halloween tights…
So, I was very happy to finish.
On my run while struggling, I thought about Leslie’s ice baths and decided I needed to try this. Only I was going to take baby steps…as in this time just put the water as cold as possible. I know, I’m a wuss, but trust me, people, it was ice to me.
Oscar seemed concerned confused at first
After a minute though, he seemed unfazed
Refueling began asap! Directly following my run I had a mini Cliff bar (I LOOOVE those) and some G2. Then I had a few doritos! And finally…I am SO lucky- Shiya heated me up some leftover dinner she made. IT was SOOOO good!
OH, and a sweet treat…look at THIS baby I dreamed up!
Have you ever taken an ice bath?!?!
