The downside of downhill

Oh me aching quads!!!

Check out this hysterical video that Erik posted. I'm pretty sure we can all relate! Watch for the girl hobbling downhill at about 0:10... yep, that's me right about now! I was loving the 6K downhill on Sunday, but now I am definitely paying for it.

Everything else is feeling great (other than an ugly blister on one toe) so I can't complain too much. And it felt pretty darn good to update my personal record in the sidebar. :D

I'll be in limbo for a couple weeks before training officially begins for my first race of 2009. Details coming soon!

That video was too funny! I'm sad to report that I'm walking like that today, with no official race finishing time to show for it ;)

Oh I bet you're sore! Did you go out for your victory lap yet? (That might help with the lactic acid stuff?) I love updating my PR list! I haven't had to in a while, though...

Downhill feels good at the time, but you're right, we pay for it later!

Melanie said...

Love the video. I would just take it easy and let your body recover until the training starts up again. Enjoy the down time.

Ha! My quads are just beginning to forgive me for the downhills I ran on Sunday. But hey, it's natural. I'm glad everything else is feeling good for you!

That video is so freaking funny!!

Although it may be painful at times I do love how your body talks to you after a hard workout. Lets me know that I am alive :)
