well, after 5 hours of pushing it to the limit yesterday, i ventured out for a long and challenging run this afternoon pushing myself up and down the hilly streets of st. john's. had a nice visit with the pigeons again today. had 6 of them land on my left arm all at once, as they fought over the piece of bread i was holding.
totally exhausted, i took a break to chat with some friends for a few hours, and then hit the pool for what turned out to be a pretty good 2.1k swim.
this 'base-building' exercise sure is tough. might take a day or two off this week to recover. the knees and calf muscles are quite sore, a clear evidence of over training..
