For some insane reason, waking up early this morning for a long run the day after a triathlon seemed like a good idea. I promised Tiffany I would meet her at 6:30 and by golly, I was there! Lori also joined us for part of the run. My body was stiff and sore, but I still managed to run 9 miles today. Now, as I post this entry, I am completely shattered. A margarita, a long bubble bath and my bed are calling me.
I’ve stretched a lot today to soothe my sore body. Tomorrow, I plan to do an hour of yoga to stretch some more and rest to recover my aching calves. It’s a good pain, though.
This week, I will run 4-5 miles on Tuesday and Thursday. On Wednesday, I will probably do some kickboxing and weights. Friday will bring more cross-training and weights. I would like to try to swim some laps on Saturday. In between workouts, I will search craigslist for a bike. If I plan to attempt another triathlon next month, it is imperative that I have the right bike.
