Tuesday - 4 miles
Because of our intensified/continuing energy crisis, I needed to get our third car running, so that we could put our Honda SUV in the garage and rely on our ole PT Cruiser and my "beater" to handle our automobile transportation. I put a new battery in the "beater," bought some cheap new tires and got it washed. Amazing. It looks like a million bucks. I paid three grand for it almost 3 years ago. I may need a new transmission soon, but even various mechanics have told me to hang on to it since it's in such good condition. This is what I'll use to drive my kid to and from school; but I'll bike to work (at least 2 days a week!). Unfortunately, I can't walk Jack to school. My wife and I are pretty committed to acting as responsibly as we can. Next revision concerns our cell phone contract.
So getting the Volvo running and gunning took most of the day. I made it to the gym later and spun on the bike for 35 minutes and ran 4 miles. Better than nothing. Tomorrow it's time to inov-8!
Felt some of the lifting I did yesterday. My calves and plantar fascia feel good, but my right hip flexor is a little sore. Hopefully the roller will take care of that. . .
