They were sssssssllllloooooooooowwwww but not painful. I cannot remember the last time that was the case. Yes, I experienced some tightnesses and some twinges...but nothing I'd classify honestly as "pain." And no pain the next day. I felt weird taking an epsom salts bath after a whompin', stompin', slow-ass two-measly-mile run, but I do think it helped. Taking care of my body feels foreign, but as I reap the benefits, it makes total sense. Why did I not understand this for freakin' almost 50 years? Well, now I do.
Can I get a "halleluja"?
Four weeks to get ready for the Hood to Coast Relay with Nuun...my PT and I are fully optimistic that I will be ready and able :) I surely won't be fast, but..well...when was I ever? But then again, Nuun didn't select me based on my speed to begin with. Am I right?
Speaking of Nuun and Hood to Coast, my Team Morning teammate, Tricia (who was also my Nuun Platuun teammate last year...and will again be our team's lead-off runner as I am, again, our team's anchor...probably in more ways than one :P), alerted me to some fun, new information and a chance to win some free stuff. Tricia works for the ZOOMA race series, and they are introducing a new race...

The winner of a 60-capsule bottle of Everest Nutrition's Krill Oil is Michelle is Running with Attitude! The good ol' random number generator over at random.org spat out 38 when asked to provide a number at random between 1 and 39, inclusive. Michelle, are you just SOOOOO surprised? :)
And stay tuned for info on the up-coming Ellimpics! You needn't be injured to participate (we do not discriminate)...but all events will take place on rehabbish equipment...elliptical trainer, stairmaster, recumbent bike, alter-G...what am I forgetting? It will be very loosely organized, but there will be killer prizes...probably one awarded for Event Most Likely to Induce Insanity (i.e. elliptical marathon, recumbent century...) and one that will be awarded by random drawing. I'll try to sort out some details...or perhaps make things more confusing...over the weekend, so look for an informational post early next week.
Happy Thursday! The weekend is almost here :)
Do you look forward to weekends?
– when I was in the throes of adrenal fatigue (which seemed like forever..because it kind of was) I actually dreaded weekends. The thought of being home alone with my kids was overwhelming and nearly incapacitating. Now that I am emerging from that fog/climbing out of that quicksand/whatever you want to call it, I look forward to them :)
