7 Sisters, six painful days later…

Am I the only one with leg pain six days after the 7  Sisters Trail Race? I’m pretty certain that a seventh day will dawn and that a full week after the race, I will still be hurting. This isn’t the first time that this has happened, but it is a little more unpleasant than the last time. I had the regular delayed onset muscle soreness, but this is ridiculous. I’ve been struggling going down stairs all week. This seven thing is symbolic. It was the seventh time that I ran 7 Sisters. I think that the name of the race may be changed to “7 Days of Suffering Trail Race.” I’ve heard from friends who suffered through the heat too. Some refer to it as the “7 Ankle Twisters Trail Race” while others call it the “7 Blisters Trail Race.”

Whatever you call it, it hurts.

It is important to note that the Sugarloaf Mountain Athletic Club volunteers did another fine job with the race. I neglected to mention this in my first blog post. So, whether it is muscle pain, black/blue toenails, scratches, sunburn, a sprained ankle, a sore shoulder, or some other trail running injury…hang in there. You have another seven days to recover until the Soapstone Mountain Trail Race beats you up again. I’m going to watch from the sidelines.

He is learning the lines. He taught me a new saying after a particularly rugged, technical, and bouncy section. He said, "That was a serious chamois adjuster." #mountainbike #mountainbiking #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad
