Boy do I LOOOVE active weekends...

I love the concept of recovering during the work week. I love that my weekends are filled with outdoor and athletic activities. This weekend I played in a softball tournament on saturday and had a long run on sunday. I played 5 games in fact we were 3 and 2. That is hard work. When I woke up on sunday I was sore about a 3 out of 10 and decided today was a good day to run 16 miles. My longest run ever! I NEVER would have been able to do that before do both things back to back. Before this chemistry change I have experienced I would have woke up to a 7 or 8 /10 soreness. Therefore, no run or at least not that long. I was tired and slow but I was able to grind it out. GRRRIIIIIIND IT. My wife wasnt so lucky. Again with the posterior tibialis tendonosis. She only was able to get 10 and will spend this week at her physical therapists office. (yea me.) Oh and a quick note, my friend Andi (short for andrea, I think) got herself a road bike and will be training for a triathlon soon! She is hoping for a few sprints and olympics this year. She is gonna beat me I just know it! QUOTE:

What lies within ANDI is a stud triathlete ready to train. YOU GO GIRL!

16 is a nice, round number. Your fitness levels seemed to have been improved by the diet changes! Who knew?

i love the fact that you are writing about pain scales on your blog :) 16 nice!!! i haven't gone that far thus this season rock on !

16 miles eh! Not bad. Only 10 to go. I'll be honest, that is one of the toughest spots in the race where you are starting to get a little tired, the pace is getting a little uncomfortable and you still have 10 to go! The more you can make your body feel that amount of discomfort the more it will accomodate and adapt to it! Good times!
