I woke up this morning feeling like ten miles of bad road – and it was self inflicted…

I ran in the George Washington Parkway Classic Ten-Miler yesterday, and most of it is on the concrete surfaced George Washington Parkway which runs along the Potomac River from Mount Vernon into Old Town Alexandria.  It’s a beautiful course that’s hard on the legs and joints.

Add to running on the harder surface of concrete, an afternoon of sitting at my kitchen table processing pictures with Bill (I took almost 2,000 pictures with my GoPro). Each time I push that magic little button on my GoPro’s remote control, it takes a burst of 30 pictures!

 

Add to that not stretching properly after the race…

Add to that not icing down after I got home from the race…

Add to that a Chipotle chicken bowl chocked full of sodium for dinner…

Add to that two Mike’s Hard Limeades which are the perfect pairing to Chipotle…

Add to that not drinking enough water after dinner…

Add to that three nights in a row prior to the race of getting only five hours sleep per night…

 

Today is going to be all about hydration, hydration, hydration, foam rolling, stretching, and moving my body.  It’s the perfect day to have a busy schedule with lots of clients to train because that keeps me moving!

I’m hoping to get my recap of yesterday’s race out by tomorrow, but that will mean more sitting tonight…

 

  • Questions:
  • Do you find that you sit too much?
  • What was the most fun thing you did this weekend?
  • Who raced this past weekend?

 

 

Happy Running! ~ Deb
