I have had a few days off work this week, so have been using the excuse of the 5 x 50 challenge to get out a bit. On Monday we cycling to the seaside - which was a very hilly 52kms, Tuesday we walked 8kms and then yesterday I did B210K w2r2.
While my mind might have been ready, as after a stressful month at work, clearing my head in the fresh air was just what the Dr ordered, not sure my body was.
When I got back after my run, I was really feeling it in my quads and was actually a bit worried that I might have pulled something.
So after a bit of Internet research (what could possibly go wrong??) I sat in a very very cold bath. I am sure the neighbours must have been intrigued by my loud gasps, groans and shouts, but after ten minutes I was literally numb with cold that it didn't hurt any more.
Anyway legs all good this morning, and I have finally warmed up so there must be something in it after all - not sure I would rush into a cold bath after every run, but would certainly not discount it to prevent any injuries getting worse.
Just a leisurely walk for me today though
