After epson salt bath, stretching, recovery drink (skim cow's milk w/ Hammer Vegan chocolate protein powder) and 110% ice + compression and my delicious recovery meal, I was on-call at the hospital so I had to assess a patient who was recently intubated and sedated (on propofol) and needed tube feeding so as the on-call RD, I was consulted by the MD to provide a formula and rate for the patient. Nothing like keeping the brain "ON" after a workout.
Later in the afternoon, Karel and I (and Campy) headed to downtown Jacksonville to volunteer at the Glow Run 5K.
It was a cold afternoon but Campy dressed well. I had my Oakley Women Pro Soft Shell Jacket which is one of my favorite jackets. It is perfect for the cold days here in Florida and I love it because it can be worn "dressed up" as well as worn comfortable for a cold run (ex. like when I was in Iowa running in less than 10-degree weather..brrrr) or under a ski/snowboarding jacket.
The event had a DJ w/ great pump-up music (despite being super cold out -everyone was dancing before the event), cool glow stick necklaces and glasses and almost everyone was dressed in bright colorful outfits. They have awards at the end for costumes as well as a big dance party. How awesome and a great way to forget about running as "exercise" or burning calories but rather the fun in just moving your body.
