Today was a good day. My legs were super sore, and sitting down was quite uncomfortable (boy, could I feel those sit bones!), but it just felt great to feel my muscles again!! I woke up early enough to do some ab work, then immediately (this evenign) after getting the kids bathed, I ran on the treadmill for a bit. My legs felt good, although not as strong as I’d like. That will come in time. At least that’s what I tell myself It’s been two weeks since I’ve run, so I can’t complain much. Tomorrow I’ll run another 2 miles at lunch, then during the evening I’ll spend some time on the spin bike.
I finally found the courage to submit my name to the guy putting together our company team for the Texas Independence Relay. At this point, it seems I’d be the fifth runner showing an interest, but we’ve got plenty of time to add a few more. He’s hoping for eight in total. In order to do this, I’ll have to be prepared to run five legs of 5-miles each over a 2-day period in early March of 2008. I think that’s plenty of time to train for it, and hopefully the conditioning benefits of the cycling will work to my advantage.
Back to work for me. I’ve got stuff to finish before I drag myself into bed.
