Ice is my new companion. I tell this to you because once the running starts you start feeling aches and pains on places you didnt know existed. I have been reading alot of material on running, proper technique, stretching, attire, motivation and all sort of stuff. People actually take ice baths. I try to imagine what that would be like but oh my I dont want to go there it is hard enough to ice my hip for 15 minutes. Can you imagine and ICE BATH. I would rather suffer. The importance of ice is to reduce inflamation. It is only my 6th week I have a long way to go I am sure there is plenty more ice in my future. For now I will keep icing. Sunday I will be running 8 miles.. Bring it on!
