I’ll Have A Side Of Overdone With That Run


August 2012

I did something that absolutely had to be done today – even if it wasn’t very smart. When I woke up this morning my legs were hurting pretty good after my first run in quite a while yesterday… But the wind came in while we were sleeping and blew all of the rain and clouds out of the state. The temperature is absolutely perfect at 79 degrees, heck the wind even died down to 10 mph… After playing couch jockey for two days and being off the bike for three, there was no way I was taking another day off. To top that off we’re supposed to get rain tomorrow.

I started off with the wife and kids for the first two miles to try to loosen up my legs a bit before splitting off for a spin around my 35.5 mile route. I’d planned on taking a bit more than two hours to do it so could keep from killing myself, but I went a bit faster and now I’m really feeling it.

It is what it is and I’m sure I’ll be taking it rather easy tomorrow. Truth be told, I really had a great time. The weather was perfect and I really needed that ride.

    As they say you have to strike while the iron is hot. I can’t stand when I get a stretch of 3 days where I can’t get out for a decent hike or bike ride. I start pacing the floors and the story is told that I get on my wife’s nerves during these spells. πŸ™‚

      Now that’s an interesting point, getting on the wife’s nerves – that makes A LOT of sense. That describes what goes on in my house to a tee!

      Thanks for that brother. πŸ˜‰
