Week Three Done Early....and 26 Miles Run!

Hi All,

Jen and I finished our week #3 a bit early, but in no way backing off our workouts. We both did our long runs today (Jen jammed out 6 miles running, I did an hour on the Gauntlet) and since we have a theatre obligation all day tomorrow, we decided to do our 90 minute power yoga TONIGHT, only eight hours after our run. Crazy!

But something else it showed us: you can do more than you think you can much of the time.

Usually I would assume that after a long run I need at least a day before I could work my legs the way yoga (especially Roche-yoga!) can work your legs. But we both had good form tonight and a fair amount of strength.

And a bonus: We are getting Saturday AND Sunday to recoup!!! And I am really looking forward to that, as I upped my weekly mileage to 26.4 miles. And if you're wondering, no, I have no desire to do a marathon!! It took me three sessions to run the length of a marathon. Running it in one session? The idea make me ill. It's half marathons for ole' Robby!

Happy recovery to all. Here's to three weeks of good work.

You are both such inspirations! You help me see it is possible and still fun! :)

You are a flat-out fitness freak, and I mean that in the best way possible. You could probably fell a tree with your forearm.

Just had to tell you also - I went to see To Kill A Mockingbird with my daughter's 8th-grade class. You were EXCELLENT - your accent, your body language, the creeping menace of your words -- you were really into character. Amazing. I really had to reassure my daughter that in real life you are an awfully nice guy because she was appalled when I told her I knew you from yoga. Bravo!
