It actually wasn't bad at all. I popped in the first Harry Potter movie and set out to conquer all 14. Since I went to the doc last week and he said to stay off the pavement til my leg feels better I've been diligently doing treadmill runs. I had water at mile 4, took shot bloks at mile 6, had water at mile 9 (by the way, I still haven't mastered running and drinking - I got water up my nose every time), took shot bloks at mile 11, and then finished out the last 5k.
Glorious. I was on cloud 9. I ran the entire movie and then, per the doctor's orders, did 20 minutes of Pilate's (OK, he said stretching, but Pilate's instead works for me), and then took a 20 minute ice bath. On the way to the gas station I drank a glass of cherry juice per RoseRunner's recommendation in this post , and afterwards I felt AMAZING. No pain. WIN.
Then I went bridesmaid dress shopping with one of my best friends. We ended up going to lunch and having mimosa's before I ventured back home to my husband. He has had poison ivy for the past week and has been a miserable mess and is finally starting to feel better. We ended up going to B-dubs to watch the UFC fight and then over to Stats and then over to my coworkers house... I skipped most of the drinking though and DD'd. We got home and in bed at a ridiculous time, but honestly being able to see my friends and hang out and catch up was completely worth it.
Don't be fooled by how innocent they look. Because our cats despise when we sleep in, Sean and I were up by 9:30. We woke up our friend Matt (who crashed at our house), went to IHOP, dropped him off, and then I worked out while Sean did the yard.
Then we cleaned up and headed over to my parents. We played Scrabble (I won), ate some pretty rockin' bacon-wrapped shrimp, drank wine, and played Scattergories until we looked at the clock and realized it was 12:30am. Are you kidding me...
Went home. Slept. Woke up early again. Took the motorcycle out and met my parents (who took their motorcycle out) for coffee, went home, watched True Blood, I napped and fought the worst headache of my life, cleaned up, went to Sean's friend Mike's house to hang out in the pool/hang out with friends, went home, watched Criminal Minds, and then went to bed.
At several different point I thought about doing a 4th of July 5k, but honestly, hanging out with our families and friends really trumped racing this weekend. So now I'm on the prowl for a July race to do. :)
Anyone do any 4th of July races? How'd they go?
