9-10:xx min miles while running. Not too bad for me. Now to develop some endurance. :)

Warmed up walking and with short runs. Then let it go longer twice. Beautiful cool morning and running was wonderful. Knees hurt just a little but not bad. They didn't hurt AT ALL this morning when I got up.

I did foam roll calves thoroughly last night, and did ITB and the rest of thigh as well, but not as much as calves. Aspercream and ice. Woke up after an hour or more with the ice on my knee, removed it then first one then the other leg started cramping on inside thigh terrible bad. It took a while to get past that, and man it hurt. Nothing sore this morning. I wonder if it was all the rolling, or the long bike that triggered the cramps last night. Never had that before. It sure was nice to get up and my knees didn't hurt.

Luck is what you have left after you give 100 % - Langston Coleman

I was in the liquor store last night, and was thinking about what my son likes.  Remembered today was Easter.  I'd thought about Easter Baskets earlier, but the adult kids are a bit old for that.   But in the liquor store I thought what a great little gift for Easter.  Rounded up the stuff in the grocery store and liquor store, and prepared baskets for my daughter, and my son's 'family.'  Rum and red wine for my daughter and Whiskey and Tequila for son and his fiance,  As I was putting it all together with candy, Easter grass, and chocolate bunnies last night I remembered the cousin living with my son and his fiance - oops a quick run to the grocery store this morning yielded another couple of chocolate bunnies.  Put an extra in my daughter's too, she's been having a friend over.  Not sure if he's 'permanent' or casual, but there's a bunny for him if he shows up.  It was really fun!

Actually got a run in this morning - very encouraging.  I'm way behind on training, but I am where I am.

pool closed today.  I might have actually made it over there.

In office paying bills, cleaning up mail and desk and then taxes.  My Favorite - not.

Bike
  • 3h 15m
  • 47.30 miles
  • 14.55 Mi/hr

rode an hour over to Odessa, then a ~ 12 mile loop with a good friend, then home. 23 mph winds gusts to 33 by the time I got back. Rode mostly pretty easy, but by the time 3.5 hours was up, I was done. Spent about 30 min all total, chatting when I picked him up, at one stop along the way and again when I dropped him off. Still a good early season ride.

The human / bike interface needs some riding time to become accustom to being in the saddle again. :)

today I need to get by the bike shop for a little bike tune up work, head tube and lower bracket, need new shorts and a helmet.
Grocery store, laundry and need to get my taxes and my dad's taxes stuff together for the accountant.

Run
  • 18m
  • 1.50 miles
  • 12m /Mi

Started out to walk. Knee was pretty good through stretching, but walking hurt a little. I'm so dad-gum tired of nursing this silly thing. so I ran a little. That didn't really hurt any more than walking. So I just made it an easy run/ walk. The running felt so good, except for the silly knee.

So after the run I made sure to put some aspercream on the knee and take a couple of ibuprofen. Knee seems to be pretty much ok today, a little sore when I get up from the desk, but not bad at all.

Longish (45mi) ride tomorrow, but easy. We'll see how that works. It really is time to start working out. Riding with a friend tomorrow so there will be no wimping out.


What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I thought my new computer was all set, but it turns out that somehow in the transfer of iTunes from the old to new a bunch of songs didn't make it.  I spent way too much time fiddling with it today, but I finally got it.  Some bills paid and mail mostly done.  It sure takes a long time to get things done.  It seems like there is an endless list of chores.  Need to call AT&T and see if I can get my internet bundled with everything else and renew my business phone contract.  Little things that take time. I was hoping to get my desk cleared off today, and the old computer put away till I'm ready to take it to the mountain home.

Remembered to ice my knee last night, but knee pretty sore today.  Forgot aspercream last night.
 It appears that walking around all day and sitting on airplanes may not be good for the recovery.  Oh well, it was sure good yesterday, and the timing was good too.

 

15 hour day from the time I hit the airport at 6:00 am till I got back there at 9.  No exercise except trooping through DFW and around Fort Worth TX.

Knee was very good this morning not even announcing itself at all.

just once because I had to leave early. Windy and cold today. Decided to lay off of running / walking for a few days and see if I can get the knee back to normal. It didn't hurt this morning. I guess the ride yesterday was good for it.


drove to Fort Davis to meet with the Prude Ranch group coordinator to see what we can do to make Cyclefest a better event.  Also to see what we can do about the hamburger dinner idea.  I asked her to walk with me around the area.  I could see why they want to use the Pavillion for the BBQ.  It's clearly the best venue.  She could see why I thought it's way, way too far from the road and the center of the cycling activities.  I hope she can work out something with her boss.  I'm not sure I can afford to spend another day away from work just to drive down there to meet again for an hour. 

I also found out how under utilized the ranch lodging is during our event.  I'll see what I can do about that.  They've got at least 30 unused hotel rooms.  We should surely fill those.  Try to get more people to utilize the breakfast on Saturday and Sunday.
