Fell asleep last night with my boys around 11:30, up at 7:20. I thought my quads would be dead today, but they’re good. It’s my tail and hamstrings that are really hurting.
It was perfect running weather, 55 degrees and overcast. I had a great run. I really felt good and wanted to push the pace, so I had some trouble getting my HR below 150 a lot of the last few miles. I ended up (according to RunKeeper) doing my biggest elevation climb in a run, which is hard to believe given my hundreds of runs over the past few years. Either way, I felt really good this morning. My HR monitor is continuing to give me trouble. Eventually I will stop griping about it and send it in.
I spent a good part of the afternoon chilling in the hot tub while it was 45 degrees outside. Awesome.
We had a great dinner with some friends tonight that we don’t get to see very much. I indulged, and enjoyed it. The restaurant serves all local (they have a garden in the back) foods, but that doesn’t mean it was healthy . . . just delicious.
