Planning ahead pays off

so in advance of the big run, i had planned to take today off and rest my weary ass. I figured I may be pretty sore from pushing myself a little too hard. I am a few months ahead in my training and I figured some parts of me would be crying out in pain and I wouldn't notice until the next day. I was feeling pretty damn awesome when I came home yesterday morning. I was full of energy but my hips were a little sore because I didn't take the time to properly stretch after the race because I was so focused on taking some tylenol, drinking water/gatorade, getting a bagel so that I would NOT get a migraine like I normally do after a race, which I thankfully did not, just a dull headache I can deal with. Then I got home to take a shower, started bounding down the stairs and it happened. synthetic socks + painted stairs = mouse going down them on her back/ass So no real pain in my legs today...but i have bruises on my arms from trying to stop myself from going down the full flight of stairs and my back hurts like a mofo. good thing i have a comfy bed and wireless access on my laptop :)

Yikes! God, glad you're ok! That could have been bad!

Glad you didn't get the full blown migrane either, but a double headache sure sounds pretty bad :-(

You gotta come up with a cool story for those bruised arms! lol.

Go Skirt is right girl! one of the things I actually enjoy about running, besides stopping that is.. the time to reflect on those who motivate me, including one little mouse...
