It Might Be Time To Shave

 I don’t know what it is but my right calf feels like it has a rock in it.  Every time I push off during the gait cycle I get a sharp pain.  My legs were feeling tired and I was limping around the house all day but I decided to run today anyway.   I still feel like I am trying to catch up for my 4 days off the road.

The workout began with 11 dips, 25 reverse crunches, and 10 pull-ups.  I then rode the trainer for about 30 minutes.

While on the trainer I watched the last HardyBreed podcast.  The one with Ann Gaffigan.  It’s a very emotional speech.  So emotional it gave me goose bumps while watching.  As I looked down at my legs during a goose bump episode I noticed my legs looked like one of those electric crystal balls.  There was hair sticking out everywhere.  I think it might be time to shave.  My only thought though is that scene from 40 year old virgin…..ouch!


Well, it would only be my legs and not my chest but the thought made me chuckle.  I may be forced to shave my chest if I get too many snickers at the Tri Swim Class at the YMCA on Thursday.

Anyway, after the ride I did 11 more dips, 25 more reverse crunches, and 10 more pull ups.  Then I ran on the treadmill for 3 miles.  I was a little reluctant getting on the treadmill because of my calf but amazingly it felt great while running.  Walking is the tough part.

I ended the workout with the same lifting routine as before.  A pretty good weekend.

Weekly Total:  31 miles
