Local Weather

Wednesday, October 26, 2005

In Dallas at the moment, it's sunny and 45 degrees. Feels like it's 41 supposedly. I love this cooler weather! Unfortunately it's also supposed to get up to 73 today. Um, hello, it's OCTOBER! Almost November! It's not supposed to be 73 at this time of year! OK. Maybe in Texas it is. Dammit. Anyone have a spare room where it doesn't get above 50? My legs are feeling much better today. I mean, I took my ice bath and all after the race, even though we were at the hotel. Fortunately the ice machine was directly across from our room! So, I grabbed the ice bucket and the plastic bags from our water shopping trips to Walgreens and filled them up. The lady walking down the hall did give me a funny look when she saw the three bags filled with ice. I just smiled at her and said Hi, then carted them back to the room. It was probably the coldest ice bath I've had yet. It was painful for the first five minutes. Then just a matter of waiting it out. Then, when I took my shower, my toes burned as I got feeling back to them. I'm such a masochist! But I could walk. Yesterday my quads were a bit sore, and today it's just my left calf. Almost ready to run again! I fought with ImageShack last night and this morning. My pics are all zipped up and ready to be uploaded, but the stupid site doesn't want to respond. I was going to treat you all with a photo-tour of San Francisco and surrounds, but it wasn't meant to be for today. I promise I'll keep trying.

  • So, do we get pictures of you taking your ice bath/shower?

    You could come stay with me, but you would have to sleep on the futon. Plus, it got up to 73 here yesterday.

  • Actually, I'll trade you houses. It's freezing...not very sunny and windy. I hate it! Thankfully where I live we didn't get any snow, but there was plenty around these parts yesterday.

    I do not know how you sit in a bath of ice water. I'd have to drink a bottle of whiskey or wine first.

  • Nice weather finally, I don't know how you do the ice baths but I'm certain it is great for masochists. What happened to crys' blog, mm ice cream? It just disappeared.

  • I just read yesterday's post. how did I miss yesterday's post! I thought I was all caught up.
    That last stretch of the race, from miles 19 to 23 must have been awfully longgggggg. You really must have had to suck it up and go for it then!
    Awesome, IL, it was so cool to read about this race.
    Congrats again, and bloggy hugs to you!
    Hope you enjoyed your ice bath, (yeccch!!) LOL!

  • So glad you did well and enjoyed yourself! I'm a bit too lazy for that kind of high, but I sure do applaude YOU for it ;)

  • We could trade houses. I'd love 73 degrees right now.
    Congratulations on your marathon. What a HUGE accomplishment.

  • See, here in Dallas it's just too freaking hot. While you all get to enjoy autumn the way it's meant to be, we're still gringing out 70+. Heck, it could be in teh 80's again before long.

    Yet another reason to get to the Rockies.. ;-)

  • Ice baths still sound painful to me-is it? Whatever tickles your fancy stella lass.
