That treacherous Arctic Enema. Nothing else scares the crap out of me more than the Arctic Enema. There's something about being engulfed freezing ice cold water that absolutely terrifies me. The shock, the sting, the burning sensation from the heatless* water taking your form! I'm gonna start taking cold showers, and maybe even work my way up to ice-filled baths! Yes. No limits.
I need to start obstacle training... Cardio alone just ain't gonna cut it for too much longer. As a results, I need another pair of shoes – this time for trail running. I've got a long road ahead of me with not too much time to go. October 13, 2013 is creepin' up real good! My activity overview after the jump...
After a few days of initial recovery and some scheduling mashups, tonight I went for my first run since February of last year (2012). I managed to pull off a bit over 2 miles – not bad considering the length of the hiatus! Controlled breathing and decent outdoor temperature helped me get through it.
After I got home, I drank about 3 glasses of water, followed by eating some chicken and tuna to help boost the muscle reparation process. At that point I haven't been so tired in a very, very long time – there wasn't anything else for me to do (or could do) so I went straight to bed.
* I fully acknowledge that nothing can ever reach a true heatless state, but it sure as hell feels like it!
