This be the time to take it all in, relax, rest, lay on the couch, eat cheeze its and doughnuts, and drink down many full bodied beers on a nightly basis. Or so it appears that is what some people seem to think. Don't get me wrong, I am enjoying the relatively sedate lifestyle these last couple of days have offered. But nightly ice baths aint exactly what comes to mind when I visualize my ideal relaxation vacation.
I live in Southern California. I was born and raised here. I thought San Luis Obispo was literally FREEZING when I went to college. Thus, one can see why I am not exactly a "cold weather" person. Add to this that I seem to have pretty crappy circulation in my hands and, more importantly for the sake of this conversation, feet, and one can also see why an ice bath is pretty much torture for me.

Ohh well, at least tomorrow is Wednesday and I only have two more blocks of ice in the freezer. (I made a deal with myself that if I bought several in one trip, once the totality was exhausted, I need not return). My toes will be happy come Friday.

  2. I can think of 2 or 3 more things that won't miss the ice baths.
