Another Three

D and I headed to the bike path today for an easy 3 miles. I'm still in recovery mode. I'm still taking it easy. And, quite frankly, I'm not feeling that great. Still tight in the hamstrings/calves/quads/glutes and everything else that's attached. More stretching and foam rolling is in order...well, right after I type this.

I've decided that I'm going to treat this like an injury. I'm not injured, but I'm not 100%. For some reason, things aren't springing back to normal. I can't quite figure it out. Anyway, I'm going to continue to take it very easy until I feel...well...100%. The good news in all this is that it's early February. There's no rush. If I don't start to feel better by the end of the week, then I might start thinking about worrying. For now, I'll just enjoy my short runs. Because short runs are better than no runs at all.

In other news, mad props to Jeff for skiing really well yesterday at the Great Glen Nordic 300. And double those props to him finishing his entire Ultimate Slider Combo at Moat.

Ultimate sliders porters after the "there's only one hill" race?

That is "ultimate sliders *and* porters". How do we edit comments?

Dumbstoopidhamstrings. Any thoughts of taking a spin by PT to see what they say? Either way, you're being very smart about it. And you're right - it's early in the season, plenty of time to show the hammys who's boss.

Sounds like a trip to Denny's is in order for Moons Over My Hammy.

"Ham and scrambled egg sandwich with Swiss and American cheese on grilled sourdough. Served with choice of hash browns or grits."

Not sure if you can get grits up here though.

Jeff - I'm 95% sure that's what I had after the race last year. Sounds like it's going to become a tradition.

Mindy - No. Now never speak of it again.

Ian - Mmmm....ham...

I ordered the meat lovers sliders at the Moat one time and the waitress asked "Who's splitting this?" when she brought it out. I gave her a confused look as she told me it's meant for more than one person. I took that as a challenge.

Kev - She obviously wasn't aware how much food a 78 pound guy can put away.
