Tired Legs................

There has to a fine line between strengthening and trashing your legs!

I've been on a crusade to find my line. The running has been consistent with about one rest day a week but my miles are shorter, so no real long runs. The gym workouts have been five days a week with light weights and high reps! I'm loving my Altras, which are probably making me use different leg muscles while running.

I even got back on the bike this past weekend and rode into some nasty headwinds, must have been at least 3 mph winds........ Whew............

Well after all of this I can honestly say that getting up to pee in the middle of the night is a journey!

Even though the legs are tired, it is a good feeling.

Still haven't replaced my Garmin or iPod, so I just listen to the little voices in my head and only run routes that I know the mileage.

I think I'm one of the few people in the gym without ear buds on while working out!

Your undead squirrel is seriously creepy. I'm not sure what my response would have been and I'm glad not to find out!
