What was your time? I just want a ballpark estimate of how long it takes to run a marathon so I can be suitably impressed. Not sure if 40 minutes or 4 hours is more realistic. 

 

time was 5:13. Official time was 5:37, but I had a 20 minute bathroom line that I refuse to acknowledge as part of my time. 40 minutes is superman/flash level fast. 4 hours is just shy of elite runner levels.

Of course you were. Duh.

Your sheer confidence in my ability never ceases to amaze or feel less than amazingly supportive.

Oh, The dreams you weave. I got my one rest day and back to work (after a trip to the ER for grimble last night)

In this week of recovery, I got a sports massage. I feel like it made the difference between walking and shuffling today. I have zero joint pain except for some ankle flexion, but I expected that. I did not expect the knee joint soreness to go away this fast though, so thats kind of amazing. Oh and the fairly epic sunburn I got for not putting on sunscreen. I don't have much of an appetite, I'm forcing myself to eat today. I'm also got to enjoy my glenlivet 15 in my fancy glencairn derivative glass. SO there's that.

 

Time off or not, this week is still going to be all about recovery, so now that I comfortably feel like I won't die, I'm going to use my roller to continue to work out the muscles and such. Legs only until the sunburn fades. I'm crazy, not masochistic.

 

Also going to use this new lack of appetite to really focus on what I'm eating, not necessarily go towards Whole30 like originally planned, but be aware of what I'll need to change when we do kick it off. I was making dinner last night and I popped out a fun size twix. Went to put it in my mouth, stopped, looked at it in all it's chocolatey caramely glory, then threw it in the trash.

Sure. :)

For sunburn: Cold aloe vera gel makes the burn feel exponentially better and heals the surface. For deep healing, apply light and very hydrating lotion to the entire area as often as it feels dry. Burned skin is weak and fragile, and any hydration your body puts there is most likely evaporating.

 

Is Grimble okay?

I have never had this. How does it compare to Glenlivet 15? (my current favorite casual drink. I have a bottle of Ardbeg Dark Cove that is my big celebration whiskey and you can pry it from my cold dead fingers)

Barbasol shaving cream with aloe in it has been a freaking life saver. I have to double check with the wife for what lotions we have, she's better at the skincare game than I am (although you're bringing my skill level up quickly)

EDIT: I have this, will it work?

She's better. Fortunately, she likes doctors and taking medicine so it makes it super easy. Outside of some crying, she didn't even so much as flinch when they stuck her for a blood draw. I'm raising a warrior who's embracing it all on her own.

I think yes. Though whyyyyyy vaseline, do you need to have men's and women's versions of basically the same lotion product? Lol.

I KNOW. But it was given to me and its worked really well with keeping my hands from turning into sandpaper when I was lifting daily.

More peat and more smoke. And that is probably true regardless of which scotch you compare Laphroaig to. It's the most in-your-face one of the Islay single malts, in my opinion, and probably an acquired taste. It's actually pretty similar to the regular Ardbeg, but a lot less smooth and gentle.

Because marketing.

 

I doubt I'm the only woman who buys men's products as long as they don't have too much fragrance, since it's essentially the exact same thing, but around 30% cheaper. Shaving products are an obvious and disturbing example of this.

 

And yes, Vaseline makes good stuff. Stick it in the fridge for a few minutes before applying, and it feels really good on sunburnt skin :) The reason for the lotion is essentially hydrate the skin and provide it with all the building blocks it needs to restore itself as it heals. Any lotion geared towards healing super-dry skin will get the job done.

It's like drinking a campfire and it's amazing.

I've never had the regular ardbeg, which is probalby an issue because the much more expensive dark cove is happiness in a bottle and very hard not to drink in a single session.

You definitely need to try Laphroaig then. :)

Also late, but retroactive props to beast-mode Grimble, who is now on my personal list of tough chick role models.

Another very good reason to reach for a men's razor and not those awful Gillette Venus abominations. :P

Round 1. Fight!

 

I last 10 minutes against the foam roller last night. Back of my legs were fine, a little tight but nothing to write home about. Inner thigh near my groin made my breath catch, and my left leg front lower quad made me cuss my mother. I could not hold out against its might. Fortunately, this is a multi-night, multi-round brawl, so we will conduct round two tonight and see if we can't do any better. This time I'll start with my pain point and work from there, maybe we can actually have success.

Really? I must try to remember that not everyone here rolled a slightly anaemic human sorcerer when I'm looking at other people's lifting numbers.

So, what determines a victory if your opponent is inanimate? Do you just have to pin it to the ground for a count of ten?

I have never been accused of being anemic.

Make it through a full rolling routine.

Late. To. Last. Party.

Last party best party.

 

Round 2 of the foam rolling had a rain delay. Mostly because I had a THING at work that made me forced me to take it home. I did manage to sit in a full squat for round about 3 minutes without locking up my hips getting out of it, I can feel my back slowly getting my perpendicular to the ground each time I do it, probably something to do with the fact that the monday massage and yesterdays foam rolling, along with the continual stretching is making my muscles and tendons less like a stretched rubber band.
