The Tunes: Lucinda Williams, Car Wheels On A Gravel Road
The Mood: kind of lazy
Well after Saturdays long run I was still feeling a little beat up. I had been running an easy run on Sundays after my long runs, but this weeks was extra hard on me for some reason so I took this Sunday off. My legs were still a little achy so I decided to do a nice and easy 5 miler today.
Lucinda Williams '98 album, Car Wheels On A Gravel Road set the mood. The mix of country and blues set the tone of an easy, relaxed trot through the neighborhood. But when the song "Can't Let Go" came on I did notice a little pick up in my step.
My legs felt like they had bricks tied to them today. Guess it's time to drink a little pineapple juice, a little trick the NQRFPT'ers learned from the famous Ray Parella at one of our Pasta Dinners at his restaurant. It's supposed to help with the break down of Lactic acid in your legs, and today I think I have a gallon of it in each limb!!
So a slow start to the week, but hopefully there will be improvement tomorrow. I have to run tomorrow morning at 6am because my Tues and Thurs evenings are now occupied with a new activity, I'm an assistant coach for a girls softball team! Tomorrow I'm working with the pitchers so I better go brush up on my pitching skills. I haven't pitched in quite a few years. But the plus side of being a coach is it's about "them" doing it..not me :) And if they screw around I can make them run!! (hey maybe I will get some running in then)
