Quad Crusher

Hubby and I joined some friends for a local Half Marathon on Saturday morning.  We arrived early and chatted while we waited for the start.  Because Scott and I were just running this as a training day run we had no big expectation on a finishing time.  We had not really planned to stick together but after the race began it just worked out.  Mile after mile we ran and suffered the beating of the hills.  At one point I decided to walk up a small portion of one hill and actually was able to keep up with the person running just in front of me.  CRAZY!!

What a great day spent with some pretty awesome friends.  I cannot say enough how lucky we are! 

Who does like a like hardware bling to kick off 2012?

Although our quads were still talking a small bit of trash on Sunday we were still able to do our hour spin and swim.  Actually was just perfect a mix to flush the legs out. 

Onto another week and lots more training ahead.

Haha, totally know the feeling about walking those bad boys. At Nike Women's 26.2 H and I walked the hills and passed people running :) haha, trust me, it is POSSIBLE!

Plus we felt much better at the end than we would have trying to push through it all.

Your poor quads :( Massage time yet?
