Sheer Will Power!

I ran 10 miles today, average speed 6.0 mph. I wanted to see if I could do it, since there is a 10 mile race in two weeks that I want to do. I made it on sheer will power, no walking. My legs were mad at me the second I quit. I thought I was probably in for several days of payback. Since I'm breastfeeding, I'm not allowed to take vitamin I (ibuprofen). I asked Bruce if there were anything I could do to avoid days of pain. He suggested and ice bath. TORTURE! I made it through it by forcing myself to remember child birth. Then it wasn't so bad.

Maybe you should try this in August?

Let's get svelte by freezing ourselves to death? That doesn't sound very fun ;)
