Off - barely making it around  today.  Stairs are very difficult and painful.

easy bike - feels good to get my legs moving and blood flowing.  11.5 miles in 50:30.  Still tough to walk up and down stairs.  Did some light core stuff - abs only.

moderate PM run - went out and legs actually felt wonderful (compared to how they have felt recently).  Decided to push it a little bit.  4mi. mod. - 28:40.  Weight is a bit high, but that's to be expected with little running and eating (alot). Good to be back out running, though!

AM easy run: beautiful morning and my legs are finally back (enough) from saturday to be able to run.

5mi. - 43:40. 

PM1: intervals on the bike trainer - 10x0.5mi. hard efforts.  Started at around 27mph, and finished at about 32 mph.  9 mi. total - 23:00

PM2: The wife and had the parents come up and watch the kid, so my wife could get a long and well deserved night out.  We used the free night's stay at a local fancy hotel from a race prize from last year.  Since we were literally staying in a hotel about 5 minutes away from our house, the wife went home briefly to put the kid to bed.  Don't think he would've cooperated with her parents for this task... anyway, I got in an easy 4 loops around MillRace Park while she did that.  No watch, nice weather, legs feeling a little tired from actually doing stuff this morning and cummulative from previous month.  Slow jog, about 4.5 miles.
