The greenway was pretty busy, as the temperatures were very mild... pleasant to say the least! If I had a nickle for every time I said, "On your left!" I would be rich. I started to play this game in my head called, "Which way will the pedestrian move when I say 'On your left'?" This is a game you play when there isn't much else to keep you entertained. No matter how old we are, we still mix up left and right, particularity in a panic! One particular man was walking in the middle of the path and I slowed down and announced my presence and he just stopped and pressed his hands into his sides as if to shrink himself. It was amusing, I must say.
I was happy that my big toes did not see AS numb as they have been in the past when dismounting the bike. It still took about a half a mile before my legs were loosened up enough to feel like I was running. The best way I can describe what that transition feels like is "clunky". You feel stiff and unbalanced and you feel like a toddler walking for the first time. Once I loosened up I felt pretty good. My run workout was short, and I sometimes feel like I am cheating when my run is only 15 minutes long. At the same time I have to consider that I just rode 90 minutes on the bike. At times I wonder if I can train for at least a half marathon at the same time as the triathlon. I miss the miles... beleive it or not. All in all today was a good workout, which I needed after the drama at the vet this morning. Long story, but all is fine now. That workout helped to exhaust not only my body, but also my brain.
