two up, one back
Yesterday morning I thought I'd be really sore from all the biking and little bits of running this weekend. Instead, I felt pretty good all day, even better than I did the entire weekend. I gallowalked 4 miles, running a bit over 2.5 of it. Didn't feel great, but definitely manageable. Later the terrifically busy day surprised me with a free half-hour, so I squeezed in 6.75 miles on the bike. Yee haw.
This morning I awoke to - tada! - no pain. Well, maybe 98% no-pain. I was thrilled, because the first few steps out of bed are usually the worst, and here I was scrambling around making coffee with nary a trace of a limp. I had an early-early appointment with my teammate the chiro, but after that I'd be able to manage a gallowalk before work and oh boy, was I ever ready. I knew it would be fabulous.
Well, it wasn't. The first few steps of every running segment hurt - not horribly, but enough to discourage me. I felt better as I warmed up, and in fact felt better running than walking, but it was not what I expected, and that depressed me. I ended up running 3.45 miles of the 4, and I've been a little sore ever since. Gave myself the rest of the day off - no riding, walking, nothing. I'm tired. It will be better tomorrow. Yes.
