Billy did not okay me posting this picture (actually he doesn’t even know that I took this picture) so if I am sleeping on the couch tonight, I am blaming it on you and the fact that I am addicted to blogging and posting pictures with or without my husbands approval.
I guess that amount of sweat is what happens when you pull out an 11.6 mile run (all uphill, he ran from our house to my parents house) with a 7:50 average pace.
Today after my PAIN FREE 3 mile run, I was going to do some weights but since my sister made me lift really heavy on Saturday, I can barely lift up my arms to put deodarant on let alone lift a weight. Instead, I spent a good 15 minutes stretching.
I really don’t know if there is anything better (okay, of course there are;) than getting in a good STRONG run and then stretching afterwards while drinking chocolate milk with extra chocolate. Billy always asks if I want to pour some milk into my cup of chocolate syrup.
I think I did every stretch possible, but the above one that Billy is doing has to be my absolute FAVORITE stretch! Lying on your back, cross your legs just as you might while sitting in a chair. Grasping the “under” leg with both hands, pull the knee toward your chest until you feel the stretch in your buttocks and hips.
What is your favorite stretch?
What was your workout?
3 miles run, 2 miles walk and I might go and ellipticize with the sister later tonight since I am a single woman on Monday and Wednesday nights and would go to bed at 7 pm if I didn’t have anything else planned.
