Keeping myself in check, I chose not to jump on the treadmill and overdo it tonight. Instead, I rode the bike at a high speed cadence for some light cardio and some flushing of lactate in the muscles. I always find that 30-45 minutes on the bike makes me feel good, no matter what I have done during the day. It's a rejuvenating activity for my body to simply spin fast and free of resistance.
During the bike ride, I continued my read of the Hal Higdon book, 4:09:43. It is shaping up to be a powerful, fascinating read. I do not want to ruin it for anyone so I will simply say that everyone that is a runner needs to read this book, no matter what you consider yourself, recreational, semi-serious, or elite even. Get the book and read it.
