Summer Daze (In March)

AM: 60 min :: 9M

Just an easy hour around Lake Nokomis today. I always feel a little sluggish after a day off and today was no different. My body must become so accustomed to running everyday, that when I go more than 24 hours without running it gets confused.

As is usually the case during the spring, I overdressed for the run. It was probably in the mid-50s when I went out this morning, but I'm still in the winter mode as far as layers. No complaints though. I'll adjust eventually. Its going to get cold again anyways. The long-range forecast shows a rain/snow mix the day before the race and probable rain on race day. I don't put a lot of stock in long-range forecasts, but this will probably be the one time they get it right. Luckily I'm uniquely prepared from my Ed Fitz experienes. It can't possibly be that bad.

I wish I could have enjoyed the weather more, but I had class tonight. Nothing like staring out a window of a half-empty classroom at sunshine and people in shorts.

Robert Horry is old.
Peyton Manning is good with kids.

Man, robert Horry IS old! Hilarious! Where do you find crap like this? Back to running.....when I take a day off the following days run always feels stiff/hard/sucko for me too. Same phenomonen when a multi-day event participant can g0 out and bang out miles and miles daily for x amount of days of the event....then the day after they finish they can't get out of bed or walk.
