Rest and Recovery Time

You have to make sure to give your body a chance to rest and recover, and that’s what today is for me. I got off of work late today, so I decided to use today as a recovery day and focus on training again tomorrow. It looks like I’ll be hitting the treadmill for my run (it’s supposed to hit 100 degrees Tuesday). I’m not a fan of treadmills; they don’t give you any feel of the road, it’s a constant pace (which I hardly ever keep), and there is nothing to look at to let your mind wonder. The gym has numerous televisions, but I don’t care to watch TV. I’ll be glad when the heat wave tapers off and I can run before it’s pitch black out. But I may have to do that anyway, I love running outside.

Please remember that the Hy Vee triathlon is this Sunday. Come down and cheer on the athletes as they compete in an Olympic length triathlon. A shout out of good luck to Connie, Eric, and Andy who are competing this year (did I miss anyone?). It takes a lot of time, dedication, and willpower to prepare for these events, and I and proud of all of you and admire each of you. Good Luck and I’ll see you at the finish line. Cheers!

Live happy, be healthy.
