Off work today.  Quality time with the kid while the wife works.  Took him on a couple walks pushing the strolller, and did about 500 core exercises throughout the day.  Acouple sets of pushups and carried the kid around a lot - that def. counts as strength training! :)  

PM: a 20 minute/ 5mile bike ride around the neighborhood felt good to get the heart pumping and the blood flowing to the legs.  Wrapped the legs up in ice and had a delicious protein shake afterward.

Time to forget this last debacle and move on.  Though I'm sure I'll be recapping Saturday at work about 3 or 4 times.

PM: light track work.  Testing the legs - jog over to the track and slowly built up to about MP over a couple miles.  Then a couple of 400s at LT ~ mile pace.  Since it was getting dark and the place is usually deserted on the nicest of days, surprisingly, there were 4 or 5 younger people doing some kind of track workout this evening.  Still in recovery mode, so any sort of hard workouts are still not allowed.   I seem to have added on some pounds this week :)

AM: a very heavy legged 5k this morning. One of the local favorites, so I couldn't miss it.  Mile 1 was 5:37, then, about what I expected week after a hard fought marathon - in the 6:00's and slowing up through the finish.  5k - 18:50
