Jeff’s Post – Running > Biking!
The bottom of my foot was still bothering me yesterday so I decided to spend about an hour on the bike trainer (I also lifted weights). I like throwing the bike in every once in a while but I enjoy running so much more. I never have an issue running inside on the treadmill but riding the bike on the trainer bores me. I love riding the bike outside – the trainer not so much! I also tend to recover slower after long bike rides.
So this morning it was back on the treadmill. I have a great adventure planned in about 18 days and maintaining my running fitness without injury is my goal. I decided to break in a pair of new shoes. I think I have a running shoe problem. I have boxes of them and I’ve been sitting on a new pair of Brooks Ghost 4’s for a few months. I thought the extra cushioning would be good for my foot and I also thought I may take these shoes on my new adventure. The shoes felt great and I ran 8 miles – everything felt good – Yeah!
Soundtrack today, Bon Jovi live at Madison Squared Garden. I’m a huge Bon Jovi fan and it has been a while since I’ve watched this concert DVD. It took me back to the trip Tamara and I took to New York earlier this year. We went to see Bon Jovi at Madison Squared Garden and we had an amazing run around Central Park. I love visiting New York and can’t wait to go back.
Have a great day – If it is a nice day go outside for a walk or run – you will be happy that you did!
