Jeff’s Daily Post – X Train Day

Decided to give my legs a break from the pounding this morning and hop on the bike trainer.  My foot was hurting a little when I woke up and although I really really really wanted to run I decided to play it safe.  I could run on the treadmill inside for days but for some reason I struggle riding the bike inside.   I’ve heard others mention they get bored on the treadmill – I’ve never been bored on the treadmill but I’ve experienced that on the bike trainer.  I rode the bike for an hour (12.3 miles).  I really like the way my legs feel when I get off the bike – a bit tired but they are pumped!  Riding the bike also gives me a little extra time for weights and I hit them hard this morning.  My arms are shaking as I type this (need bigger arms!)

Still not sure what I’m doing about the Annapolis 10 Miler on Sunday.  I want to run this race and wouldn’t mind running in the driving wind and rain but I’m about 1/1/2 hours away and I don’t want to risk life and limb trying to get up and back.  I will let the forecast play out a bit and decide over the weekend.

Have a great day and go for a run/walk or jump on your bike if you can!
