Plyometrics and Citystreets
My forward trend continues (lots of knocking on wood). After the plyo workout on Friday, Saturday was the last day of Citystreets. On Saturday morning they've been closing a route from the Brooklyn Bridge, up Centre Street to Lafayette, to Fourth Avenue to Park Avenue South, onto the Park Avenue Overpass, around Grand Central Station, and then up Park Avenue to 72nd St. My legs were pretty sore, so I figured I'd go as far as I could, and then turn back. Once I got going, my legs felt good, and I managed to log the full route -- another 15 mile long run. Hooray!! The pace was pretty good too -- faster than I've been going in months. That was aided by the periodic waits for cross-town traffic, but don't tell anybody. I'm glad I got the run out of the way, because yesterday the DOMS from Friday's plyo ate my quads. No injury, but I was not happy going down stairs. Today is much better, and tomorrow I'll be ready of another run.
