|All necessary post 18 miles|
I even commented the next day that I thought I could go for another run. I slept like a rock that night, and I'm guessing that's why I felt like a million bucks. I ran five miles on the treadmill Monday, then got my first massage in close to two years. It reminded me that I need more massages in my life. There's something very gratifying about working out knots that you put there from running and basically pushing yourself to the limit. It must have worked, because my eight-mile treadmill run today was basically a non-event. I yearn for the days when an eight-miler was no big deal. It will happen this summer, eventually.
Right now, I'm focused on getting to the start line of Circular Logic on April 2. After that, I'll ramp up the cycling drastically and see how quickly I can get to a century ride. I've long loved coordinated cycling and look forward to getting back on the road.
On to the next!
