      Thanks Birds I appreciate the encouragement.

      Arlahile - I ditched the bike tonight and ran 10 instead, Gallowalked 9:1 like Cramel suggested, felt pretty darn good at the end despite the high humidity. Drank 250 calories o fchocholate mile,  like Willamoaa suggsted and now gonna go soak in the tub

      Well day-yum, an extra 10 is one way to go about it! Is that about an equivalent workout (time/effort/??) to what you were planning on the bike? Don't run yourself into the ground!


      This thread is really in need of pics. Somehow I don't think *that's* gonna happen!

        Usually my bike ride is 90 minutes plus at about the same effort. Oh the ice bath did wonders! Just have a higher voice now!


          So I did a 20 miler on Saturday (gallowalked), faster than I wanted to go, but I completed it. Did the Ice bath afterward and followed Willamona's advice on nutrition. I took Sunday off to recover, however I really wasn't as sore as I thought I would be,  just used to taking the day off after a long run. Today, I am good to go, still feeling it but in a good way.

          Thank you for the advice!!
