So, there was a schedule local 5k.... and although Monday is technically a "rest" day for me, I ran it as I do every Labor Day! My legs are felling it....and my back too! Oh, and my foot also!!!! UGH!! Is this just a runner of age of 40 thing? Or does everyone have aches and pains?!?!!! LOL! :)
Anyway, it was actually a GREAT run. I PR'd this course, although did not get an overall PR for a 5K. Still a win, win and "YAY me" moment! HA!HA! Awaiting officially times to be posted, but definitely a PR!!!!! Weather was better than it has been, but still a bit warm.... or at least in my book a little warm. I am telling you, I believe I like running in 40-50 degree weather the best!
My friend Lisa and I remember after the race that we hadn't taken our race day "selfie" until after we finished the race..... therefore, I had some wild hair issues going on under my hat!!!! LOL! She had an overall PR!!! GO LISA!!!
Yes, I was second in my age group, but boy this picture shows just how much this race took out of me! With running on rest day after a 9.25 mile long run yesterday, I knew today would not be pretty! LOL! Seriously, I should have stayed in bed! HA! HA!
This heating pad picture above has my name written ALL over it!!!! Oh yes, in between laundry loads, I will be laying on this!!!!!! Ahhhhhhh....... it truly is the small things! Many of you runners probably foam roll or such..... me? Give me a heating pad!!!!! :)
UNTIL later! Thanks for support of my blog...... I am getting better at posting lately..... Have a happy and safe holiday!!!
Did you race today? Or just chilled and enjoyed the holiday?
Do you have aches and pains? Or is it really the fact that I am over 40 years of age?
Heating pad? Foam roller? Massage? How do you cope with sore muscles?
