Nice job skhill! Congratulations on the hardware.
I try to avoid cardio machines as much as humanly possible, but at the gym I usually put a couple of sweat towels on the floor on either side of me to soak up the puddles. Yeah, I sweat that much inside.
In other hardware news, revised results have me eleven seconds out of an AG award in last week's marathon. Eleven seconds. I probably had that much in me, especially roundabout mile 25 when I really slowed down into the wind and wasn't feeling confident enough to start a kick yet. Grrrrrrrrr.
Anyway I got out yesterday for an easy four and a half, first run since the race. I'd been feeling plenty able to run since Wednesday or so, but I had a lot of stuff to do in the garden, did the club ride on Saturday which wound up 12 miles farther than anyone had planned for , and just generally figured I didn't need to run until I really started missing it. Yesterday morning I had a choice between some more gardening before my PT appointment and the afternoon rain, and a run, and I chose to run. It felt pretty good in spite of the sore adductors from the bike, and I saw another fox!
