Took a little and much needed break this weekend :)  Back on track.  Rested and ready to go!   Spun 20 miles this morning then ran 2 on the treadmill.  Running is so much easier after spinning and I'm not sure why.  Could it be because I'm warmed up or is it because the effort is not as tough as spinning?

18 mile spin. A little tough this morning, legs still tired from yesterday. Good pile of sweat to prove my effort :P

Wanted to do 18 but didn't have it in me I guess. I think I need a new place to run because I was bored. I uploaded new music, wore my new compression socks, and went out on the rail trail. Nothing new to see so only able to keep my mind busy with my music and my thoughts. That works for a while but not for 18 miles worth. Had one interesting incident though. At mile 5 I wanted to drink and GU so I took out my gum and juggled with the gum, my GU, the lid to my water, and my water. Last time I dropped and lost the lid to my drink so I concentrated hard on not losing it this time and ended up losing my gum instead. Can't go without my gum so I picked it up off the ground and popped it back in my mouth. Took about 10 minutes to work the sand granules out :)
