A change of plan
see more Political Pictures
Okay, here's the thing. Friday I did a stupid thing: I combined the 3-mile jog (from Thursday) with the cycling. And my legs were sore. I rested them on Saturday, and delayed the Sunday run to give them time to feel good about moving, but they were still sore. Monday, my legs simply did not want to pedal.
I cycled anyway. I am nothing if not stubborn.
However, I can take a hint... eventually.
Exercise du jour: Today I will do nothing more strenuous than a gentle, one-mile walk to/from the Weight Watcher's meeting. Maybe a little yoga, if the legs think they can handle that. And we'll see how they feel tomorrow.
Done! Walked 2 miles. It felt very weird not to be doing more. My mind kept thinking 'am I slacking off?' And I probably would've gone ahead and pushed the legs to do the 2 mile jog, but I decided to get a headache instead. Probably the legs induced the headache. Legs can be sneaky.
