I took yesterday completely off from anything physical other than going to get gas, laundry and to the grocery store to pick up a roast and veggies since I was craving comfort food in the form of exactly that. Oh and I showered.
My quads were killing me yesterday and still sore today. I am kinda surprised at how sore they actually were and wondering if the cold and rain made them that much more sore? I know I worked those hills pretty hard but still.
So today when I went to the gym (no running outside here today as it never got above 40 deg, overcast/drizzly and was windy). Um, yeah. No. I'd had enough of that on Sunday.
So I hit the gym after work. I wasnt sure how running on the treadmill would go and it did in fact hurt to run. So basically for 40 minutes I ran a song, walked a song. Repeat. About halfway through my quads loosened up and I was able to go faster without thinking I was going to fly off the back because my legs wouldn't work.
After that I hit the weights pretty hard focusing on back, bi's and tri's.
I will be running at the gym (no more run/walk though) until Saturday just to give my legs a break from the pavement. And the cold ass temperatures. I looooooooooooove the cold, but as I said, I'm a little over what happened on Sunday and I want to be warm for a few days before I have to do a 20 miler in 35 deg weather on Saturday.
At least its not supposed to rain.
I will do an hour tomorrow, an hour on Thursday followed by a training session with Kyle (which I postponed until then as I'm not ready for an ass whuppin' just yet either. :O) And then take Friday off so I can be ready for Saturday.
