Monday and Wednesday were walks with Lucy. On Tuesday I did what is now a mammoth workout. 60 minutes running, 40 minutes walking Lucy and 30 minutes on the elliptical. 11 miles! On Thursday I ran 60 minutes and then went to the gym in the afternoon and added in another 30 minutes on the elliptical. 9 miles.
It seems easier to do the elliptical on the days I run rather than on the day I recover hammering home the simple truth. My 67 year old body ( soon to be 68 ) needs whole days off. Of course there are the Lucy walks but I take those pretty easy anyway.
