day 24

quads were feeling much better today, probably because i took my french rolling pin (cheap version of "the stick") to them last night. but i still went easy again today. i actually ran on the TM at the gym this morning. watched "the history of canned food" on the history channel. kind of interesting, but not something i would choose to watch everyday. napolean bonaparte offered a cash reward for someone to come up with a method to transport and preserve food for the french army.  so this guy named nicholas appert found that food remained edible for a long time if he heated it in a metal container and sealed it off from air. his technology ended up winning the cash prize, and canned food was born. then later on louis pasteur came along with the explanation of why the food was preserved by this method...the heating known as pasteurization. woo! boring, eh? and that's how i passed my time on the TM.

looking forward to another great day weather-wise!!

From Bill Mandler on Sat, Feb 21, 2009 at 14:13:47 must be dedicated. I have a hard enough time running on the treadmill, I avoid it at all costs, without watching "the history of canned food". I honestly think I would take my freezing temperatures over that :-)

oh Allie, I have to agree with Bill on this one ... as if treadmill running did not already have a bad enough rap - doing it while watching the history of canning? ;-). Just teasing - it was pretty interesting (at least a tiny paragraph of it, I don't know if I would have been able to concentrate on it for more than 3 seconds.

Good job getting in the run, despite the hardship!

You can always come borrow my massage stick if you want. I am only like 6 blocks away, after all.
