WOW, I can not believe you could get your legs to spin for an hour. You are tough. I am sure you will be back on the roads in no time, like tomorrow.
Enjoy your day!

Those quads get TRASHED in DN!! Nice job on the spin, I'm with Kelli: you are tough as nails! Spinning is rough on the quads as well. Glad you are feeling better.

nice work - I just saw the pictures from the race and you look awesome. You have had some serious improvement over the last 5 years. What is the secret?

cool new blog picture. but what happened to the fluoresecent pink nike frees?

kelli & RAD - the spin session was slow. slow enough to read a book and not sweat (RAD's favorite!)
just trying to work out the soreness.
ryandla - the secret is FRB! i joined the blog after the ogden marathon in 2008.
scott - i still have the shoes; no worries. i wore them in the eugene marathon so they were a bit too worn to use in des news. i'll bring them back out for some shorter races, but for the most part they are retired (the downside to the frees - they don't last long).

other downside is they are magnets for rocks and pea gravel. I spend several minutes picking rocks out of them after each run. but they seem to be a decent shoe, good compromise of flexibility and cushioning, I think I will keep using them as my main training show.

Good to get the blood flowing again.

I'm glad you are still taking it easy, at least as easy as someone who loves to exercise can take it. Hope those quads feel better soon.

From the looks of your picture, you are wearing the Brooks Launch woohoooo! I am totally getting some. You like?
Ah spinning! I used to spin twice a week. I haven't done it for months. I suck.
When are you going to teach me how to hold a sub seven for 26 miles. Advice Allie, advice! :)

lily - i love the brooks launch. i wore my first pair in des news last year and loved them so much i got another pair for this year. they are a great, great shoe (i don't whip out the double great often). they are lightweight, durable, comfortable and of course, green. (however - pink nike frees still trump all!)
advice: i really don't have any. really. one day (TOU 2008) i just decided i would try to run 6:45 pace for as long as possible to see what would happen. somehow it just came together and worked out. that probably sounds really dumb, i know. i still have a lot of things to learn. just be consistent (you are) and run lots of good mileage (you do). don't be afraid of the paces - you have the speed and you might surprise yourself.
i really do want to run with you sometime. i promise we don't have to run at the prison.

There are some great running routes out by the prison!
