I went for another 3 mile run last night. From a cardio standpoint, things went much much better. No more side stitches and not too much cardio distress. I was sore again, though. Strangely, my soft tissues are not sore as I sit here the day after - but they were really sore almost immediately afterwards. Specifically, my “bad leg” calf and my quads. So, I did some pretty intense stretching that could only be described as manly stretching (Read: yoga) which seemed to free everything up quite a bit.
I still feel some discomfort in my shin. I am certainly not 100% yet and I don’t think that I’ll push it much past 3 or 4 miles until I feel like I am. So, it seems like I’m on a 3 day regimen of short run, long bike, medium bike. Hopefully, I’ll continue to be 100% pain free by the 3rd day to start it all over again.
(Disclaimer, this gets real nerdy real quick.) This weekend my mom and sister were in town. One of the things that I wanted to do while they were here was go up to one of the uber fancy malls and check out Bill Gates’ brand new one of a kind “Microsoft store”. I was able to convince them to go up there with promises of H & M and Barneys.
My thoughts? The Microsoft store is a blatant rip off of an Apple store – with the only difference being that people in the Microsoft store weren’t actually BUYING anything. Here is a sneak peak:
From the front of the store. If you weren’t careful, you would mistake it for an Apple store.
Playing with the touch screen coffee table called “surface”. Not sure what you would DO with this, but still cool.
My little sister playing XBOX 360. I need TVs that wrap around my living room.
Now, if you are like I am and are FIRED up and ready to sign away your life to Bill Gates, HOLD ON! Mark @ The Life and Times of RunnuRMark is GIVING away a FREE copy of Windows 7. You should go there, put your name in, and then act like it was your idea. (The gal below was even running when the idea struck her!! I'll bet she reads my blog. She certainly reads RunnuRMark's blog.)
