This week was a continuation of holiday/traveling craziness and I was SERIOUSLY missing my foam roller while in Boston... my ITBand has never been so tight!! Thankfully we are reunited and it feels so good--literally!! No idea what I did before that little blue cylinder.
TOTAL miles: 21Mon- Rest
Weds- Rest [yup, you are witnessing my longest laziness streak since I gave birth!!]
Thurs- 5 mile run outside [54 min]... last one here until April!
Sat- 15 minute abs class and 10 miles run in 1 hour and 42 minutes... this is interesting trying to do "on my own" with a toddler: It broke down to 2 miles running outside with little d and the BOB, then off to the gym for 5 miles run on the TM before the abs class, and 3 miles after. What would I do without the 2-hour childcare allotment?! It has definitely proved to be WELL worth the $15 a month!! And similar to last week, my LR was followed by an ice bath*, soaking for one minute per mile I ran. And LOTS of foam rolling!! [followed by a two hour nap... LR's are exhausting!]
Sun- 3 mile run outside
*I have NEVER been a fan of the ice bath. The only way I have been able to tolerate it for the last two weeks [and it works for me so I will continue to do it!] is to fill the tub about half-full with ice-cold water. I slowly work my way in the tub, and before I sit with my back to the faucet, I turn on the faucet as hot as I can get it. So for a few minutes my lower half may be frozen but my head, shoulders, and arms are immersed in hot water so it finally becomes tolerable after just a bit.
