running-logo[1]So during my five days away from the gym I did keep moderately active, doing two 20 mile bike rides, a small workout yesterday as well as unconventional exercise from house chores such as pressure washing the pool deck and cage.

Today I jumped back into a run/ride brick after skipping running last week.  Things went better than expected, especially considering I didn’t take my normal pre-run anti-inflammatory to keep the swelling down.  I didn’t really have the warm up limp that I have experienced during prior sessions until the IT band loosened up.

Today’s Workout

Run/Ride brick

20 minute run – 2.08 miles covered

10 minute recumbent bike – 2.45 miles covered
