Today we rode out to Porteau Cove and it was awesome!
Climbing hill after hill, chasing after the 2 guys in the lead, legs burning, heart pounding, lungs feeling like they may burst at any moment....I felt exhilarated! I LOVE hills!!
I rode just over 92km today and when I got home my legs felt heavy and tired. No worries though because I knew just what to do! At the end of my shower I ran the water over just my legs and slowly made the water cooler and cooler until it was as cold as it would go. I then slowly counted to 30 as I ran the water over one leg and then the other. A little uncomfortable, but when I was done my legs felt refreshed and ready for tomorrow to teach my 3 spin classes and a Total Body Conditioning class.
Cold water really works well on tired legs - give it a try after your next big ride, or tough workout!
Now it's time for a snack and a nap :)
