That's it. My last run before this weekend's tri.
Today's 5 mile run means I can give my running legs the break they deserve before the big event. As they say, "The hay is in the barn." This means, "The hard training is over. Now you can sit back and enjoy the fruit of your labor." By the way, for farmers, "The hay is in the barn" isn't just a saying. I've spent countless hours getting up square bales and putting them in the barn before dark.
Farming, they say, is hard work. But it's good work. It puts you to bed at night with a good tired if you know what I mean.
In sum, my running muscles can take a much-deserved break. Thank you, legs, for being there for me. You are such a blessing. In fact, I don't know what I'd do without you!
