Ice Bath?

by Molly August. 19, 2008 2671 views

August 19. Today we both ran our farthest distances to date!!!

I ran 6 miles tonight, and Ed doubled that and ran 12!!!! YIKES> After I got back, I took an ice bath which is what you are suppose to do…BRRRR….cold…but it felt good!

In Baby Aunt Chris and Uncle Bill FINALLY had their baby tonight :) They had a baby girl…named, Maren Sophia…They got her first name, but combining my Uncle's two sisters (My mom, and Aunt)…first names…Marlene and Karen….pretty cool huh? Which led me to think of all the “M” names we have in my family…

Mary -grandma

Crazy eh? And 7 of our birthdays are in MAY..haha!

Breakfast…I wonder why I forgot to take a picture of the waffles…oh well, too late now…we had scrambled eggs and waffles…which only happens when Ed has the day off..usually Sundays…but today was a special day because he had the day off, so I made him waffles,eggs, and toast :)

A bucket full of ice…plus…

…a bath…equals, an ice bath…BRRRR…but it helps you recover faster…I'll do anything to not hurt the next day :)

I thought it seemed like there were an awful lot of "M" names in your family at your family camping trip. =) And BRRR!!!! I don't think I could do it.

*grins at all the "M" names in your family* I think it's a nice tradition. :)

Considering it's just past 7am here and it's the middle of Winter, the ice bath doesn't seem all that appealing right now!!

I'm not sure I could handle the ice bath... but maybe the arthritic knees would like it
