After I finished Ragnar I was done.  I didn't even feel like stretching out properly because hey, I was done.  I should have though.  It would have made the recovery process faster and probably less painful.

I ran three miles today to loosen the legs up.  My right leg hurts the most.  My guitar, I mean hamstring is still real tight.  The calf is pretty sore, too, but getting better.  I stopped and stretched after every mile and made sure to stretch really good when I was done.

Time - 26:56 (avg. pace 8:59)

Splits - 9:11, 8:56, 8:51

I'm not sure why baldnspicy is such a fan of Mr. Rogers.  There may be some kind of connection that draws them together.  Being the playa that he was, I'm not so sure baldnspicy's not one of the many illegitimate children of Mr. Rogers.  See any resemblance?  DNA results pending.

Today I get to add another name to my Bloggers I've Met in Real Life list.  I'm up in Kingman for my sister's wedding.  I made arrangements to meet up with Kerry.  I planned out a route to run that I used to do a lot in high school, but because Kerry had to go to work early, we just met at his house.  It's probably a good thing we didn't do my route since it's on rocky roads, and it was dark out.  I knew it was going to be cold, but I didn't wear a whole lot more than I usually do.  We fat guys have good insulation.

Kerry's a super nice guy.  It was fun talking to him while we ran.  We kept a nice easy pace, which was good because the elevation was a little higher than I'm used to, and nature started calling around mile 3.  I felt so embarrassed, but I wasn't about to tell Kerry I had to go.  Then with a mile to go it almost became too unbearable.  I finally confided in Kerry about my predicament.  He got a good laugh out of it which helped.  Well, Nan, maybe someday I'll perfect the art of the PAS.  Until then, I'll just enjoy the company and conversation of my fellow bloggers.
