Shannon & Pam, after months of training, officially became ultrarunners with finishing Way Too Cool 2010 (3/13/10). They continue to run the long distances as they continue to challenge themselves physically & mentally. This is where they post those triumphs and also their tribulations.

11-17-09 Day 9 - Shannon

So I went to see Dr. Steve last night and he popped me back into place. Apparently my hips were going one direction & my torso the other - ya I was messed up. The good news is I don't have any restrictions other than to listen to my body.

With that in mind, I had every intention of getting up this morning and attempting to do an easy 2 miles on the treadmill then a yoga class. Well when I woke up, I listened to my body and it said - Um I don't think so lady! My back was really tight and my legs, oh my goodness, my legs - ouch! Ya, I didn't go to the gym. So this is an official 2nd rest day!

Now that I'm up and about, my back is definitely much, much, much better and only my legs are screaming, especially my quads and hip flexors.

Therefore, no more excuses, I'll be back in the gym tomorrow attempting an easy 2 miles on the treadmill, some mill work, and upper body.

Today I will continue to ice my back and walk like a duck - LOL!

Til tomorrow



  1. My friends and I call that a TURD = Totally Unscheduled Rest Day. :-) It happens. Glad you listened to your body.

    I hope to be at COOL with you ladies for my first 50K too!

  2. hey girl, sorry you're still hurting. Get back to the gym tomorrow, I know it will make you feel better :)
