Today is a holiday of sorts for CPAs and accountants in the US. It's the day after tax day. We all get to take a deep breath after the sprint to the finish.
To celebrate my holiday I got up this morning and ran 6.5 miles on my local trails. I went out easy and kept the easy pace the whole way. I just wanted to enjoy the ride. Seeing the sun filtering through the bare trees was pretty cool. There was a little stiffness in my left knee as I finished, but no pain. As I went about my day the stiffness went away and now only my quads are telling me I did a lot of hill climbing today. There are no flat spots on my trails. I figure that's a good thing. All that climbing and descending will only make me stronger.
Here is part 2 of the oatmeal episode we began last week:
Today I tried Bob's Red Mill 7-grain cereal. Good stuff. Hearty. Nice texture. It stayed with me all the way until dinner time. It went well with my banana, but I imagine it would work equally well with raisins or dried cherries.
