Snow Recovery


Sunday (2/6):

22 Miles Long (Treadmill, 1% Incline, 3:00:43, 8:14 Pace)

Today was my longest training run yet! I also ended up with a new weekly mileage high of 82 Miles! My legs are feeling pretty good, but it’s always good to do a preventative ice bath to help speed up recovery. Only this time I decided to experiment by taking advantage of the snow drifts that are around.

I have to say it wasn’t too bad feeling. Not like the shards of knifing pain of stepping into a pre-made ice bath.

For this outside adventure I did have on dry clothes and socks. After some picture-taking I didn’t stay out because I could have used an extra layer on my butt, it froze almost as soon as I sat down. Next time we have a big snow I may try this again instead of having us go out for big bags of ice. Next time I will wear some shorts underneath.
