Recovery on the trainer
It was another ridiculously hot (>95 degrees) and humid and was rated as another Code Red day, which I have been finding make it very difficult for me to breath, so I decided to do my recovery ride on the trainer in the basement. For the first time, all three Caldwells worked out together! Betsy did a few min on the elliptical machine, I was on the bike trainer and COLE decided to hop on the swing! Ok so it wasn't necessarily a workout for him, but he was right there with us and from the looks he was giving it looked like he was working hard! Anyway, got in the Recharge Spinervals workout and felt pretty good. Got a tempo run in the morning tomorrow!
This year, like last year, I will be riding for Mary Payton's Miracle - My friend Steve Kogos from Trigators informed me that his friend Joe's daughter, Mary Payton, was diagnosed a number of years back with Late Infantile Batten Disease. This is a disease with no cure, however, there are special experimental (and extremely expensive) treatments which have shown some significant signs of success! In order to assist with the costly treatments and research, Mary Payton's Miracle was created to raise money to find a cure, hopefully in time to save little Mary Payton as well as the many others affected by this terrible disease!
