Monday & Tuesday: Off - Sore knee. Besides, a little extra rest couldn't hurt.
Wednesday: Bike 16.6 miles, 58 min. My fastest commute ever. The time off gave me fresh legs for this ride.
Thursday: Run 5.2 miles, 48 min. A fast(ish) run through the neighborhood. Knee is still a little shaky, but improving.
Friday: Bike 16.7 miles, 1:01 Commute. Rode home in a drizzly rain. Even had some traction issues.
Saturday: Run 7.0 miles, 1:10 A perfect 10-minute mile pace. Felt a little achy and stiff, which is pretty typical for a morning run.
Total: Run 12 miles, Bike 33 miles.
After my run Saturday morning, Beth and I headed up to Pittsburgh for her friend Sarah's wedding. Which was quite the bash. In fact, I think Beth would be remiss to not mention it in her blog so you should check there for her details.
I'll just focus on the fact that there was a candy table at the reception. In case you're not familiar with a "candy table", it's not euphemism for anything. It is exactly what it sounds like, a table loaded with candy. Me at a reception with a candy table, is like Robert Downey, Jr. at a reception with a "cocaine table." As would be expected from Mr. Downey, I overindulged and was fully prepared to wake up the next morning feeling like I had been by a truck (from the sugar crash). (You may remember that I like candy.)
I was pleasantly surprised the next morning, when I woke up feeling pretty good. Beth's parents came down to our room for breakfast (no way were we going to pay for breakfast at the hotel - The Omni William Penn) and we spent the afternoon at a Pirate's game. My thoughts on this game will soon be posted on Peanut Vendors.
Unfortunately, Beth had to work today, so I'm spending Labor Day on my own. I've already gone for a run on the Appalachian Trail and picked up lunch from Juice & Java (Neato Burrito is closed today)...and in 45 minutes I'll be doing my third (and final) fantasy football draft of the year. After that I should have time to do something productive before Beth gets home...we'll see.
