Soreness & Bikram

I must confess, when I see people running, I secretly race them.B I don’t know why, its my inner competitive child that never got out when I was younger since I didn’t partake in any sports until I was 24.B Sometimes I win, sometimes I lose.B Combine this secret racing with a self-imposed marathon and you get one sore Liana the next day.

When I got to the gym for my lunch break, I mentally wanted to run but I knew although I felt energetic that the knots of soreness in my right upper leg might beg to differ.B With less then 11 days before my marathon I decided there’s no need to argue with the legs.B So 4.2 miles on the elliptical with some arm weights and a ton of foam rolling became the new plan.

After work I made an urgent date in my outlook calender for a Bikram session where I reached a new level of sweat.B I had so much sweat dripping, pouring that I kept sliding all over my mat even with two towels covering it!

And as ridiculous as I looked (and let me tell you I take quite the award for lack of balance) the hips and legs felt looser.B I also didn’t die from drowning in my own sweat, although I was pretty close to it.B Maybe the soreness will leave the body tonight.

Also, can I mention how awesome Thai food is.B Can I also mention how much more awesome Thai food is after a 26 mile run.

I think if calories were no issue and I had a personal chef, I would live of drunken noodles!

Whats your favorite type of food?

Thai! Thai! and some fried ice cream

Do you ever race random strangers on your runs?

One thought on “Soreness & Bikram”

  1. I love Thai food (pad se ew) but I think my weakness is mexican, especially after a marathon. Grilled veggie burritos without cheese on a spinach tortilla gets me to cross the finish line every time. :). And I secretly race everyone, even people on the treadmill next to me at the gym.
