Drink.Thanks for all the advice on the strained quads (see post below). You guys are better than a real-life doctor! Based on your advice, and my own perception of the injury, I think I will take another rest day today, and try a short run tomorrow and see how the quads feel, and I'll play Soccer Sunday by ear. Although, to be honest, I'm thinking that soccer probably won't happen this Sunday -- I just don't want to strain these quads even more the weekend before a race; I feel as though I must practice caution. I like soccer, and I really want to play, but running is my first priority, so I have to keep that in mind.
Anyway, like I said, I'll run tomorrow, and I'll continue to treat this strain and I'll decided on Soccer Sunday on Sunday. In the meantime, I'm gonna sit back with a few frosty brews and watch the hubby make dinner.
Word to ya muthas.
