My legs are jello people!
I had every intention of hitting the treadmill for a medium paced 5.5 mile run today. I was in the car driving to the gym and I was talking to a buddy on the phone and telling him how surprised I was at how good my legs felt after doing Legs & Back.
Well, that all went to crap as soon as I started to stretch out my legs in the back of the gym. My quads and gluts were just screaming! I guess I didn't realize it earlier because I was sitting in my car all day long. I stated yesterday that I, "killed it" doing Legs & Back - well I was wrong - Legs & Back won, not me!
Anyways, I started out and every stride was a chore. I tried to ignore the uncomfortableness in my quads and ass by listening to my audiobook. It worked for 3.5 miles and I just couldn't go anymore. I kept telling myself that tomorrow is the rest day so I can push it but I just crapped out and couldn't do it. Still, 3.5 miles isn't bad but I really wanted to do two more.
For the week I ended up doing 13 miles running. This is about double of what I was doing during Tri training so I guess I can't be that upset!
Tomorrow I have a Team Meeting in Waco, TX. It is about a 3.5 hour drive. We have to be there by 9:30 am so my buddy Ryan and I are leaving at 6am. This works out good since this is my scheduled rest/stretch day. I will not be home until 7-7:30 PM and imagine that the rest will do me good.
Saturday is the beginning of Day 8/Week 2 and it is another round of Chest & Back! Also, thanks to Todd, Boomer, and Steve for weighing in on the Tri Bike question. On Saturday afternoon I am going to go take each Bike for a spin and make the final determination. The bikes are so darn similar that it is going to have to come down to which one just fits me better!
