Sittin' On An Ice Pack...

Brr cold, Brr Cold
Sittin' on an ice pack
Whoop, about to slip down

Lord, I'm so tired
How long can this go on?



Made it to 3 miles today and now I'm freezing my fanny off.
As well as my elbow...


Can someone invent a full body ice pack that I can slip on a couple of times a day while I'm working?

Good new, though...
I increased from 2 to 3 miles today by using some great chi running info from Amanda At Run To The Finish and RUNNING TALL!!! It helped my pain in the A$$ A.LOT.

:( Sorry about that!

The icebath is the full body ice treatment ...lol. But YAY on increasing by a mile :)
My sound is working again- thank goodness

DEVO, ice baths and pains in the a$$, this is a great blog post.

Julie said...

The ice bath would seem to hit all the right areas...just hard to work while taking one ;-)

Fine. I'll take a break from work...just for you. If I could just get the tv into the bathroom I could catch up on The Kardashians or Kendra or someone else really important like that :-)

Rose said...

One of my friends is going to teach me chi running methods soon. I'm looking forward to it.

Kate said...

There are constantly free chi running workshops here in San Diego but I never go. I guess I should.

Ice is your best friend :)
A full body ice-suit would be pretty nice (and awful), wouldn't it?

Abby said...

Look at you being good and icing!! I've been so cold lately, I don't think I could ice, lol!

Tell Mai that I want to be in her club too :)

And I loved your post on your visit with Michael. Such a great reminder to really take some time and focus on people. That's exactly what Jesus did when he was here!

Good job on getting 3 miles in!

They say everybody has two million dollar ideas per year - that full body ice pack might be yours!

Gotta go check out this chi running. I was icing today too...only my icing didn't look as cool. i had a bag of corn strapped around my hamstring with an old ace bandage a i walked around getting things done. My hammy is screaming at me again. boo. Hope your icing helps.

Jen said...

I hope you feel better. I would be nice to just slip into an ice bath suit. Somewhere I remember reading about these bandage like things that wrap around whatever area you wanted and they stayed cold for hours. They were reusable too. I'll have to see if I can find it for you.
Thanks for your tips on the veggies. I can never fit all that in but fine dicing it would help! Thanks!
Chi Running is great. It's form is a lot like barefoot running! :)

Julie said...

Jen,
I just heard someone talking about those the other day. I might have to check into it. The butt icing is fine because I can just sit on a pack, but the elbow...I need to rig something up.

Jen said...

Here it is.
Check it out!

thanks Jen!
I tried to buy some on line but shipping was more than the product so I'm going to try to find them in a store here.

Chi running rocks. I still have a PIA though, although a tolerable one, if there is such a thing.

MuncherCruncher said...

Yay for going from 2-3 miles!! That is definitely good :) I have a love/hate relationship with icing, as i'm sure most do. I'm picturing you in a full body ice suit and i love it...hahaha awesome! I hope the ice is helping!!

eatspinlive said...

Have you tried an ice bath? I have had many runner friends tell me they work wonders!! I can't bring myself to actually take one though! So for now I am sticking to ice packs too :) Hehe!

Caratunk Girl said...

Love Devo. So sorry for your sore butt. No fun. Ice bath? SO COLD. But it really helps. I put on a fleece coat and hat and...well that won't help your elbow now will it. Huh. Ice bath with an elbow wrap maybe?

Feel better.

Natalia said...

Hmmm am not a fan of cold or icy baths. Have heard that they work wonders though. You should be able to get arcticease at the CVS...I have seen them there.

The Hungry Runner Girl said...

Bummer! I am going to work on a full body ice pack for you!! YAY for increasing mileage gorgeous girl! Okay, two c-sections...wow, I can't even imagine! Thanks for the sweet comment today:)

Natalia ~ I had to look no further than our medicine cabinet. Steve received quite a few joke gifts for his 40th birthday and one of them was a box of "articease" knock offs. I'm still trying to decide if they are helping. As of right now, I would say YES!
