Ouch. This workout didn't have "epic" in its name (it was actually called a "Bike Sandwich"), but it felt a lot harder than Saturday's. I had to run for 80 minutes (treadmill), bike for an hour (trainer), then run for another 40 minutes (great outdoors!). My feet didn't feel so hot for the second run (darn it), and I think I really need to get serious (again) about healing them up. In fact, I'm going downstairs right this minute to get baggies of ice.
("Jeopardy" music plays.)
I also realized that if I want to get tough, I'm really going to have to start getting outside more. As of right now I'm a big baby about:
- Temperatures below 60 degrees.
- Temperatures above 80 degrees.
- Uneven surfaces.
- Inclines greater than 1.5%.
- Bright sunlight.
- People looking at me.
- Carrying water with me.
- Not having water to drink the moment I want it.
