Those Who Can't Run

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.

You know that sticking two fingers up like that means something totally different to us Brits?

Cheeky!

ROFL! I think I'll recover from my race this weekend that way too, Jess. *sigh* You're the best ;-)

Is that way I drink? Cause I sure can't run and I sure like to drink.

I'm late to the game. I advise rest but don't practice what I preach.

Is that the tell tale sign of potstickers being made (the small bowl of dipping sauce)? If so, I hope you have some leftovers for me. Yum!

I say rest and limit the soccer. Come to think of it, skip is Sunday since you will play at the beach on Saturday. That's enough exercise.

Looks like a nice way to wrap up b-day week!

AnthonyP said...

LOL - it probably takes away a lot of pain.

Crystal said...

Probably a good idea to rest some more so you don't injure it further. Soccer can wait a little longer too. Enjoy that din-din!

Now that's the way to nurse an injury ;-)

I agree!

Brianna said...

Playing "soccer by ear" (is that like "traveling by boat") - just how many drinks have you had?! :)

Sorry, that's the teacher coming out in me - it made me giggle out loud as I visualized just what that would look like. I should get out more!

Beer always cures things for me too. Like that 2nd pic, Jess.

I've tried to look at the picture closely. It looked like you didn't put a lime in your beer. (unless I need a magnifying glass!?!) I am now on the way to my fridge to see if I have any Corona left.
