<p>Good morning, I did something completely different for me this morning and biked for 45 minutes.   Up and around a local forest preserve and back home for just under 10 miles.   It was a lot of fun, I don't know why I haven't done it before.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Happy trails, all!</p>

<p>Morning <strong>zrun</strong>. Nice job on the ride.  I wish I had a road bike so I could have that option of sumthin different now and then.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My legs are still a lil sore from the race.  I think I'm gonna try a really easy 3 mile shake out, see if I can't loosen things up a bit.  Its nice to be able to just run 'whatever' for the next few weeks.</p>

<p>zrun--stick 'round these parts and we'll convert you to multisport!</p>
<p>BBS--you know you'll feel better after an easy run...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Terrible night's sleep, which is frustrating because I was whipped after yesterday!  Today is the first day of school.  After making sure sons 2 and 3 made it on the bus, I took the hound for our usual 2.5m stroll.  I probably could have run some of it, so it's good I had the hound who is not a running partner! </p>

<p>Morning...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BBS - Ah, enjoy this time before your M training starts</p>
<p>ZRun - Make that three of us.  Wish I had a road bike too.  Would probably ride on my days off. </p>
<p>4boys - What are you going to do with all that extra time with your boys off at school?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>A big fat rest day for me.  Feel pretty decent today.  May start adding back my core on off days. </p>

<p>SRD for me.  Legs don't feel sore from the 20 yesterday and I was tempted to go for a run but aired on the side of sensible.  My ankle was tender - it seems that once I get over ~50mpw the tendonitis starts to creep back.  I need to make sure I do my PT exercises.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>zrun</strong> - biking... something I should do on Mondays. My road bike has been sitting in the garage gathering dust ever since the Galena Duathlon in May 2009... good job I got new tires just before hand.  My mountain bike hasn't been touched in 4 or 5 years.</p>
<p><strong>Dan</strong> - have fun piling on the pounds</p>
<p><strong>Loopy</strong> - the machine is back</p>
<p><strong>4boysmom</strong> - wise move the day after a race.  I'll have to look for your RR.</p>
<p><strong>BBS</strong> - shake it out.</p>

<p>Good day all.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Busy, busy, busy.  You know the deal.  Anyhow...7 mile run this morning with 3 at a tempo pace of 6:20.  Starting my taper for my HIM on September 5th.  I am so ready for this taper.  Legs are hurting and time to recover and get ready to go.</p>

<p>OK well no run today but we did hike about 4 miles on some trails off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Some of it was pretty rugged - I don't think I could have run it anyway. Fun times though.<br><br>
I have some good trail maps for the other side of town. Should be some good running & riding (we brought our mtn bikes with us) tomorrow.</p>

<p>Fly by report: After getting up 30 minutes late this morning, I slogged through my normal 5.2 mile run.  I saw the ducks again, quacked at them and they answered today.  They left 2 eggs on the sidewalk again and I successfully avoided them again.  I wonder if any of those eggs survive more than a day?  Then I got home and I had to start getting stuff ready for the kids first day of school.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Later!</p>
