Monday--Rest day. Well it seems I really irritated my ankle from my run yesterday. Every time I step down and then lift up my foot, there is significant pain. Ugh!
Tuesday--Another Rest day. Still a lot of pain in ankle...when will these little injuries stop coming my way?
Wednesday--Biked 13.7 miles...62 minutes. Rode the Expresso Bikes at the YMCA today...so much fun. These are quite a workout, and with so many routes you really can't get too bored.
Thursday--Rest Day. Still cannot run but that is perfectly okay, I have a ways to go until the half in September. I can afford to rest up this early in the plan.
Friday--Another Rest Day. Cleaned my friends house, does that count as a workout? Why yes it does, after all it's upstairs and downstairs.
Saturday--Ran 8 miles...97 minutes. This was a great run, the weather couldn't have been more perfect and I took it easy most of the way. I wanted this to be a relaxed and easy long run and it was just that. There was a slight wind and the temp was about 61 degrees. Perfecto! As soon as I was home from this run I got showered, dressed and I immediately massaged my legs with lotion and the massage wand...needless to say, my legs feel pretty good.
Miles Ran-14 miles, 174 minutes total.Miles Biked-13.7 miles, 62 minutes total.
Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck.
