took off after a huge breakfast and right after the rain let up so I had the beach to myself. it was great! my big toe and left ITB did not agree but that's tough. last 4 blocks I pushed hard intoa very uncomfrortable zone just to remember how to suck it up. then had a great outdoor shower.
after the shower i joined the guys for a 30 min ride on a borrowed bike and no helmet (it's the jersey shore that just what they do) to the boardwalk for mack and manco pizza and some arcade time then a 30 min ride back. I stayed back w/ thomas who got dropped and was considering dropping him myself but this was his longest ride to date and my wife would be ticked that I left our 7yr old on his own on the streets of ocean city.
5/24 30 min recovery run to work out the kinks of which there are many. sadly this is my last run of the week as my left ITB flared up again after behaving for several years. just popped some advil and will be icing it shortly
