ICE, ICE, Baby

This …


Plus this …


Equals this …


On Saturday I took my first ice bath after logging in another 18 miles. I debated videoing the momentous occasion (don’t worry, I had on a swimsuit and long sleeve T-shirt – nothing X-rated here) but I wanted to spare you the loud screaming and colorful commentary that went something like, “Oh, *BLEEP!* Whoo, *BLEEP!* GASP, *BLEEP,* *BLEEP,* *BLEEP!*”

While it was cold as *BLEEP* I don’t think I had enough ice. The one bag I poured in melted fairly quickly. Next time I’ll need to add at least two or three. That’s right I said next time. I will definitely do it again. My legs and my feet felt great afterwards and I’m convinced it helped my recovery.

After a very active weekend of walking/running (I took it easy) and playing tennis I’m so pleased that my foot – and the rest of me – feels wonderful. I’m 40 days out from my first marathon, Gasp!, and I’m looking forward to taking every step.

I agree with Jen @ After the After: you are so brave is right! I want to turn up the thermostat when it dips below 65 degrees, and here you are in an ice bath. Coooolio.

OMG! An icy cool bath? I can't imagine you can take that cold temperature. Anyway, I'm really impressed with you!

Thanks, Everyone! It really saved my legs. We'll know I'm brave if I can do it again this week. LOL!
