This recovery week has been going well. The soreness is all gone from my legs, but it was certainly hard to get down stairs until about Wednesday. I've been able to stick with the strength training and yoga plan, hitting the mat every day this week and hitting the weights M/W/F as planned. Last night I even hopped on the stationary bike at the gym for a while to spin the legs out some. Next week it's back into base building for the triathlon season with lots of shorter workouts, so that's going to be fun.
Somebody put this on facebook so I had to share. Drunk yogi's unite!
Wednesday night we had a blast hanging out with our friend Kayte. She had some friends in from England and wanted to show them some local flair. So we all went to a Carolina Hurricanes game and then took them out to our favorite pub for a few local brews. Rob and Jo had a blast, and they were a really neat couple to get to hang out with. And it turns out the Hurricanes played a great game! The brits had never been to a hockey game before, so I got to explain some of the rules and strategies. We saw a few fights, they won a close 3-1 margin, and it was just a very physical, aggressive game. Afterwards we went around the arena to try and get player autographs, and one of the backup goalies signed a bunch of stuff and gave Rob a puck! That was really cool. What a fun night out.
