*Owwwww, holy crap, ow. Fail.

I would like to start by saying that for the rest of the night I feel like my lower right ass muscle may impode into a massive knot at any moment. Curse you, lunges! Curse you! KAAAAAAHN!
Also, please note my run time/distance. I broke through my 10 minute mile pace, and pretty solidly too. Admittedly, I was winded at the end and I'm not sure how much longer I could have held the pace, but it's a start. Strength comes from pain.
The more astute of you may have noticed that today was a run day, when according to past history I swim on Tuesdays. Good for you, way to be on your toes. Gold star. The rest of you should really follow their example. To explain, I have a check up at the doctor tomorrow after school, nothing serious, stop looking so panicked. Just have to talk to the nice lady about why my kidneys play Quarry every once in a while, that's all. I can't get a workout in before the appointment, so I have to do it afterwards. Tomorrow is supposed to be a ride day, but I don't want to ride at night. So I moved my run to today, my swim to tomorrow, and my ride to Thursday. That sets the rest of the week up for run Friday, swim Saturday, ride Sunday, which works for me because I'd rather ride on the weekend then on Friday, and if I'd ridden today I would have ridden Friday. Got that? Everyone? Ok, if you say so.
Now to couch stretch* for the rest of the night.

*a very high-level, difficult type of stretching involving reaching for the remote while having your feet on something. Try this at home, kids!

  1. Isn't it kinda nice to actually be sore again though? You hadn't had that in awhile. Your glutes are thanking you!
