Totals for the week:
7.6 miles walk/run
34 minutes pool running (incl 2 sets of [5x90s hard/30s easy])
118.9 miles bike.
Yes, I did a little gallowalking this weekend. Saturday's jaunt included about 1.25mi of actual running, and today I did 2 miles. It doesn't feel great, but it's manageable so far. Because I haven't run in so long, my legs are freshFreshFRESH and I cruised through my 3- and 4-minute running segments pretty fast for a gimp. Just for grins, today I stuck a heel lift in the shoe of my short leg. I don't know if it actually helped, but it didn't hurt.
I also took a baby step over to the dark side and bought some clipless pedals and dorky bike shoes. Yes, I am evil, but wow! what a difference it makes. I really get a better aerobic workout because I'm able to go faster. On the other hand, it's more like running, which may aggravate my injury, whatever it is. On the other hand, it's more like running.
4 miles gallowalking this morning, plus 27 miles on the bike. Almost like a real Sunday.
Oh lord, please don't let me hurt too much tomorrow.
