I Took A Week Off

Well for no apparent reason - I took a whole week off. I could use the excuse that my business hours have changed, and I can no longer run after I put the kids to bed (I have to go to bed also). But when it really comes down to it - I just wanted the rest. I've done my softball and a round of golf last week so I haven't been a total lazy blob, but no running or cycling until this past Saturday.

Saturday I went for a small ride - it felt good and I was glad I was out in the saddle. Only 8+ miles covered but I was very happy to be on the road. Sunday I got in 4 miles running. What a difference a week makes! My conditioning sucks but my legs felt pretty strong.

A couple of things I'll be writing about here in the next few days:
1. My new shoes - Brooks GTS 8.
2. My new running partner - Bogey
3. Update on Eddie
4. My cycling guy, did he really tryout for the Olympics?

Yeah just a couple of teasers - can you tell I did college radio for a few years?

Keep Steppin'

I love running, but golf can be so much more enjoyable - sometimes...especially when the birds start dropping!

I've actually heard of people taking a full week off the week before a race. Can't be all bad if they do that, right?

I'll be interested to see what you think about the brooks. That is the shoe that I wear too.
