A fair amount of running yesterday, combined with accumulating fatigue and the fact that I didn't have to be into work until 6 p.m. this evening, led me to devote my day to the four R's - 1. running, 2. recovery, 3. rest, and 4. relaxation.

I was fortunate enough to get a jump-start on #'s 2 and 3 by nabbing nine good hours of sleep last night, which left me feeling rather refreshed when I rolled out of bed at 10 o'clock this morning. Upon rising, I proceeded to knock out R # 1 for the day and extend #2 by taking an easy 68-minute stroll through town. The 'ol legs were a bit tired - which was to be expected - but didn't feel all that bad, all things considered. After completing an 'abs & uppers' circuit, I made an afternoon visit to B & N, where I flipped through a few magazines and enjoyed a fine lunch that consisted of a smoked turkey wrap and an IBC root beer, thus taking care of R #4 for the day. I returned home and decided that I could use a lil more of numero quatro, so I plopped my ass in bed and dozed off for a good 45 minutes or so before catching the news, preparing a quick dinner and heading into work for the night.

So, to sum it all up...a good run followed by a pretty rest-filled, relaxing day that allowed me to recover.

Mission accomplished.

And that pretty much sums up my rare R-filled day. Light workout on tap tomorrow night at Reggie, so that should leave me some time during the day for a (hopefully) longer entry. Until then, take it easy.
