The first 4 miles of the run were tough...I'm never warmed up at this point. But once we hit about mile 5, I started feeling awesome! The miles started flying by! The sun started coming up around mile 7 and we could see the fog rolling in and the gorgeous sunrise!!!
Thanks Angela for taking this picture of us! I hate she couldn't get in the pic too.
The rest of the run was great. But around mile 14 my legs were super tired. I was ready to quit. I'm sure this is due to my body being so used to half marathons...it was telling me I was supposed to be done lol! But FINALLY I hit mile 16! I did it! And it was a MUCH better run than last marathon training !!!! Yay!!!
Slow for a lot of you but it works for me! I'll take it! :-)
After the run, I stretched and then drove home. I came in and grabbed my Premier Protein Chocolate Shake and took an ice bath! I haven't taken an ice bath in forever and I really think they help with recovery! My son Sawyer had a blast dumping the ice on me! :-)
The run is done and now me and Andy are headed to the University of South Alabama football game! Go Jags!!!
QOTD: Have you ever taken an ice bath? Do you think it helps?
