I took an ice bath! The good thing, of course, is that we're in Europe, and as you all know, Europeans don't do ice. So let's just say it was a really really really cold bath. I finished the 16-miler (yeah yeah yeah!!! Wooo hooo!) in 2 hours 54 (I didn't say I did it fast, I just said I did it) and, to tell you the truth, I actually looked forward to sitting in cold water. My everything hurt, and I'm not exaggerating.

So I filled it up (faucet on cold as possible), hopped in and sat down (Yipes! The water came up just past my belly-button), and sat there for 15 minutes (moment of silence for maximum reflection). But I didn't stop there, oh no I did not! I dunked my head in that cold water and washed my hair, too.

How hardcore is that? HEAR ME ROAR!

But the best part is, about an hour later, when the shivers passed and I could feel my feet again... Miracle of all miracles.... NOTHING HURT! and still doesn't. Wow. It's the magic bullet for reals!


  1. I am so proud of you. We are an awesome team!

  2. Congrats on the 16 miler! So happy you tried an ice bath. It works wonders, as you discovered, after long runs.

    Can you believe it' almost February already? Ahhhh time is flying. Run run run!!!

  3. rock! Seriously, that is so awesome. You guys are such a great team and are gonna kick some French #%*. Justin is certainly gonna have to take pics of you gals running. Kudos and I hope sweets rubbed your feet! Congrats!

  4. NOT sitting in an ice bath after soccer. SO NOT!

    Nope. You're not gonna convince me. Not at all!

    But...16 miles? GO, YOU!
