Cross-training Monday.

Today I decided to do a cross-training workout.  When went to bed last night I was considering doing an easy 3 mile run in conjunction with a shorter cross workout, but I slept longer than I had wanted and woke up feeling pretty sore in my legs and back.  Yesterday was a rest day, although I did do 30 minutes on the elliptical in the morning to loosen up my legs.  That 22 miler on Saturday worked me over pretty good, and now I want to let my muscles recover.

So today I started out with another elliptical workout for 60 minutes.  Then I got on the treadmill and walked at a moderate pace with the incline as high as it would go and holding 5 pound hand weights.  I did that for 20 minutes.  Before I started I used the foam roller on my hamstrings and IT bands for a few minutes, now I think I'll do it some more.

  1. You never seize to amaze me my friend. I get exhausted just reading all the working out you do. I wish that I had as much energy as you do. Glad to hear that you are taking some good rest days though...I probably take more than I should. :) Good luck on your 3rd marathon...you will rock it!
