Rain = Trainer...
I was planning on going for a 5 mile run with the boy upon getting home from work, but unfortunately it started raining just after I finished stretching out and therefore I had a slight change of plans. Instead I hopped on the trainer and did the Spinervals Muscle Breakdown workout. This is the one that also includes a set where you get off the bike for three 1 min intervals of doing a continuous squat. KILLS your legs... Anyway, got in a great workout, but had a Wicked case of acid reflux afterwards.
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!
