My legs felt very sore even with yesterday being a rest day. I hit the trails of Wissahickon Park hard. I ran in my Inov-8 lightweight shoes. I wore my camel back too which helped to keep me hydrated. Then I did a crossfit workout a couple hours later. I had to cut the workout short from 10 min to only 7 min. If I had pushed it to ten then I may not be able to walk the next day. It was a good one.
Quote of the Day
"It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell."
