Good Friday -

There's a certain satisfaction in a little bit of pain. - Madonna
This has been an easy week following the 1/2 ironman. My legs feel great but I can tell that my body is still tired. I have been sleeping in a little more than usual - no two-a-days this week. I did get some easy running in on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

I did some fun 20, 50 and 100 yard dashes on the football field. I was trying to run at a really good clip but it just was not there. Vic is pretty quick but after about 20 yards I usually have him. Not this week. Once again, nothing hurts, nothing is sore and I don't feel fatigued - I just don't have my speed.

I'm not sure about today - I am playing it by ear - I have a few chores that have been piling up that need attention.

Tomorrow I will be doing the Natchez Trace Century ride up in Ridgeland (Jackson, MS). I have never done one of these before but it looks like fun - in fact my longest ride has only been in the nineties. I keep being told that this is a ride and not a race.

I going to try and stick to that plan.

Stick to that'll be glad you did! A ride, just a ride - seeing triple digits is enough to make anyone happy. Enjoy.

Have fun on the ride! I hear you on the recovery. I was pain free by Wednesday but I'm just tired. Hopefully next week it will all be back to normal.
