Recovery

Monday, I was still really sore, especially my right calf and hamstring, so I just took it easy and swam for 30 minutes in the pool at The Mill after work. It felt really good, but I could feel the tired legs even while I was swimming.
Today, I actually slept in a bit and had coffee before my run. I usually get up early and head out the door really early for a run so I make it back in time for my son to be dropped off. But with snow starting to fall, I decided to just run on the treadmill in my basement. I took it pretty easy. 8 miles in 58:53, between 1-3% incline. I watched Mad Men on Netflix to pass the time. Not really the most upbeat thing to watch while running, but it worked out for me.
I decided not to drive anywhere today, so I took John snowshoeing up Heavenly Hill. We had a really good time. He LOVED running downhill in his snowshoes, so maybe, just maybe I'll make a runner out of him some day.
I got a little snowblowing workout in tonight and will have to do it again in the morning before work. I did have a bit of a freak out when the snowblower wasn't spinning after it had worked perfectly fine the last time I had used it, but after inspecting it, I found ice was jamming it. It was hard to see at first, but with a headlamp, I was able to spot it way in the back. 4 bottles of hot water melted it right out and the snowblower worked like a champ. Snowshoe run tomorrow!
