“Day off or easy.”
That’s what was on my calendar today.

To be honest, I didn’t really feel like I needed it. Last week I soaked it up for all it was worth, lounging like a sloth. But after my amazing massage yesterday, I recovered from the fartlek beautifully, and woke up at 6:30 wanting to run. So at noon, I met up with a local friend and went for an easy 5 miler around the Academy cross country course. My legs were springy, and the view of the Sandia’s was incredible. Springy legs the day after a hard session usually means I’m in for major DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) tomorrow. Oh my.

The rest of the day off was spent picking up black licorice from Old Town, reading my Kindle, hot tubbing, and watching a History Channel special on Abraham Lincoln.
