Nice day out, 40F and a N breeze. Stayed on the flats south of town. The rods were in good shape, but still watching out for sand and ice. Could have used one more shirt.

We've been getting out and going to a few movies over the last couple of months. I was thinking coming home last night that more important than than the notion of how "good" a movie was, was what mattered was simply whether I enjoyed it or not. The one last night, Youth, was quite a strange film. I'm not sure how they ever dreamed up the story line, but many wonderful scenes and we both sat there quite loving it.

So the adds one more to the list, all thoroughly enjoyable, not a bad one in the bunch, at least from our point of view.

After a reminder from Phil that it was possible to get a little exercise by biking outside without freezing to death, I thought about it a bit and it seemed a reasonable suggestion (Phil is actually quite good at making reasonable suggestions for training for other people).

Mid to upper 40s, light NW breeze. Short loop on the flats. Could tell from my butt that I hadn't been biking for a few months. Could tell from my quads that I had been storing up the glycogen. And could tell from the hamstring that this was still a possible form of exercise. At least as long as the weather is benign, or at the gym I suppose.


And as to the question of what the hell was I doing speedwork for, I'd answer:

- From time to time it's fun to run faster than the usual plodding along.
- I'd had zero indications of any ailments in not just my hamstrings but the legs in general. And that includes no stiffness the day after the other times I've been to the track or run down at Forest Park in the last couple of months. And that also includes during the workout in question. Nothing. And then boom, out of the blue, no warning.
- And in general, I'd been paying very close attention to any signs the body was giving off and making adjustments according.

But sometimes things just happen. It seems to come with the territory of being out there. Still better than doing nothing.
