Cross Training is My Friend

Made it to around seven 'o clock last night and still hadn't done my long run, so I decided to visit Dixon and do a long, indoor Tri Workout instead. So, 600 yards of swimming, 16 miles of biking, and 6 miles of running later, I had in my long workout of the week.

Good decision on my part. I'm smart. Just take my word for it - I wouldn't lie to you.

Today my legs feel WAY better than they usually do after my long Saturday run. A nice change-up. If you've got an old, tired body like me, I would suggest a cross-training workout anytime to give your aching muscles a rest.
