Though this post does not compare to the fun in Eugene drama, I can say that I have discovered something new about the bod(at least mine). Yesterday, I went running with Melissa, Justin, Pat, Billy, this young kid Andrew(MD State running champ) and Ayallu(Ethiopian at G-town). We met at Difficult Run.
This was my second run in the 3 weeks. We must have run for 70 minutes or so and I felt fine. This is after three weeks of doing nothing. There was some light cardio and weights thrown in during the interim but that's all.
Yesterday afternoon the legs were tight and cranky but that's it.
Maybe lots of miles and running is not necessary in order to perform at a relatively solid level? I think that even when healthy, I will run only 3 days a week and do nothing but yoga, get massages and do other body maintenance during the other days. This certainly sounds more appealing to my brain and body.
Every body and set of legs is unique and requires its own formula to operate well.
