Kettlebell Disaster?

I blogged earlier this week about my "run in" with the kettlebell and Bob Harper's "Cardio Shred" DVD. While the workout was great - it was a really bad decision four days before a 1/2 marathon. I can barely walk. WHAT WAS I THINKING?

I am hoping tomorrow will bring relief but I have a back-up plan; if I am still hurting tomorrow, I'm going to relay the 1/2 with one of my students. I mean, really. Who tries something new (involving weights, of all things!) four days before a race? My sweet husband is trying to convince me to do it again tonight to "relieve" the pain. No go on that one, my friends. I am certainly going to return to the kettlebell as it obviously worked some new muscles (or muscles in new ways?) but I'd like to cross the finish line upright Saturday and not see it from my hospital window next door to the HealthPlex. Ugh.

Praying tomorrow will bring relief...for many reasons!


  1. Best thing to do: walk it off. Maybe even a very short run. It'll get the blood flowing to those areas and get that soreness out.

  2. Thanks for changing the comment setting so I can use this for comments. :)
