Today would have been the perfect day for a run. Too bad I didn’t run at lunch!
I was fully expecting to be sore today after two bike rides this weekend! I woke up this morning feeling okay. I checked the weather report and it stated rain all day. Because of that, I left my run stuff at home today. I decided today would be a good rest day for me. Now I wish I could have gone for a run. The weather was perfect. I went for a long walk and did not need my jacket, and wished that I had been wearing a t-shirt.
I walked up Salmon Street to Washington Park. It was so gorgeous out! I saw several runners too, which impresses me because the hill is so steep.
It also gave me some time to think about Reach The Beach. My fitness level is pretty high. I’m not sore from the bike rides this weekend–or from that killer hill on Saturday. My recovery time has sped up as well. I know that I could ride for several hours without getting tired. My concern? Being saddle sore and also having lower back pain, neck/shoulder pain, and wrist pain (I have tendinitis in my wrist) from the long ride. I’m not sure yet how to remedy these things.

QUESTION: Do you plan your workouts for the week in advance?
