The foam rolling and ice bath were a different story. MISERABLE!
Now let me rewind a little to how I was feeling yesterday. I felt great all day and then suddenly at about 3 o'clock I could barely walk. Okay, I could walk but not without a limp, my buttocks was killing me. Something just wasn't right! I got home from work and foam rolled and stretched but it only seemed to get worse! I started to panic just a little, I know how stubborn angry muscles can be and I didn't want to miss this looooooong run! I know from earlier posts you may think that I wanted to but in reality I knew I couldn't miss this. Luckily, Jorge was willing to give me a not so sensual maaaaasage ;) It was painful to say the least but I was able to run today with none of the pain I was experiencing yesterday! YAY Jorge! The House of Pain came through again. I can't believe the difference massage can make, when done right that is. I don't want any fluff with my massage just good ol' fashioned pain :) For a minute I thought perhaps Jorge was angry with me and was taking his frustrations out on my poor little (I mean HUGE ;) muscles! Nope, he was just doing what he does best, fixing angry muscles!
So at this point I could rattle off mile by mile how my run went but what would be the fun in that, besides the point that I don't rightly recall every little detail. Instead I will share a few things that have happened this past week.
Guess how many of these little gems it took to properly fuel my run this morning??
2! Yep, I ate 2 of these suckers yesterday. I called Jake early in the day to express my concern about Hill's Bakery running out of chocolate cake donuts before I could make it there. I love the bakery but they NEVER make enough of the good stuff. He said he would go and get me one, what a wonderful man I have lawfully wedded! Then Holly being the kind, wonderful person that she is brought me donut to work. I have got these people wrapped around my little finger ;) JK!! They are amazing and I am grateful to have them in my life!
I have been blessed (not) with very large veins that like to stick out! The other day as I was conditioning the gymnasts this conversation took place:
Gymnast: "Holy cow, she must be angry!" (said to the other girls)
Gymnast: "Because your veins are popping out!"
Me: "Yes, I am like the Hulk and when I get angry my veins pop out, so you better get to work and watch out!" Hee hee hee, it was funny! Now I know how to get them to work hard, just bust out the vein-y arms baaahaaaaahaaahaaa!
A few days ago I was telling Jake a story about someone close to my heart who had been "profiled" (I guess that's the right word) by a cop! Jake said "That's illegal!"
I said "It is?"
Jake: "Well, that's what my friend Jay Z tells me!"
Ha ha ha, Jay Z :)
(Maybe you had to be there ;/)
I couldn't leave you without a funny Kobe story, now could I?
The other day I was doing my cornies hair for school and Kobe said, looking at Kenna "We look just the same...well, never mind I don't have elf ears!" FUNNY!
Kenna doesn't have elf ears at all, just for your FYI (that was a line stolen from House Bunny, I know it doesn't make sense, so don't tell me ;)
I guess I am done with my non-sense for today! I hope you all have a great weekend! I am getting ready to head off to In and Out for a big A cheeseburger! I have never been a huge In and Out fan so we will see how it goes. Jake didn't believe me when I told him I would go there. I guess running 19 miles makes me crave a huge, greasy cheeseburger and fries :) Good day me Mateys!!
