I don't feel like I had a party, but according to these ice bags .... I had a party last night. I have been a little tougher on my body this week than it is used to. (probably since Honu training) I thought I would be good to it and give my legs an ice bath last night..... it did feel really good. I was just missing the pizza and beer that Maggs likes to have with her ice bath :-)
So, since I have been a "blogger" I have learned some things from everything that I read. I read that some athletes use ice bath, hot bath..... so I tried it 2x. If you have any feedback on what you do for recovery, your comments are welcome. After the baths, I put on the compression tights and went to La-La Land for the night.
I slept so hard that when I woke up, I thought that I had slept past my alarm and I was wondering what day it was. LUCKY TODAY IS FRIDAY!!! That give me a little more of a happy boost. Today, my hamstrings, quads, and glutes feel sore but I am hoping that by tomorrow morning they are ready to race! I am totally nervous about Part 1 of the BOCA STAGE RACE........ the OLOMANA ROAD RACE!! I am just going to get there early in the morning, warm up for 45mins on the trainer and give it my all to hang on to the ladies!!
I know that atleast the Time Trial will be ok, I am only racing myself during that one :-)
Well, right before I wanted to post this blog I found out that I MADE CHIEF!! I am currently a Chief Select. My life totally changes today but I am happy about that. I will be very busy for the next 6 weeks or so until my "pinning" on Sept 16th. I am hoping to be able to participate in some events, but I will see what my schedule allows. Thanks for all of your well wishes and good luck.
I AM STOKED!!
