Squeezing one in before the rain

by - Thursday, June 22, 2006

Got this morning's run in right before it started to downpour like crazy. Literally about 10 minutes after I walked back inside it started raining. I wouldn't have minded some of that rain while I was still running because oh man was it humid. Hopefully this wonderful downpour will break the humidity because it has been unreal lately.

I had to walk again at the very end of my run. For whatever reason my legs were just exhausted and were like "We can't run anymore." It wasn't really a big deal, it was only about 5 minutes of walking tops, but still, I hate having to stop and walk.

So I've fallen in love with icebaths. Granted the initial shock of the freezing cold water isn't all that fun, but when I get out, my legs feel like I hadn't really run at all. I only have time to squeeze them in on Mondays and Saturdays though because I don't have time for them when I've got to get to work the other days. I highly recommend them to everyone, and I promise they aren't as bad as they sound.

Anyway, I'm off to get ready for work. Best of luck on all your runs today!

  1. Okay, this may sound silly, but do you actually fill a bathtub with ice ... not just cold water? And how the heck to do you adjust to that...and for how long?
