Happy Mothers Day to all the moms out there!

Today in lieu of a run, I went for a bike ride. Nice sunny afternoon. Lots of turtles out sunning themselves along the way. I counted 22. Also saw a beaver lodge along the edge of a pond.  Planning some stretching and rolling for tonight.

The knee rehab is going well.  I found some exercises to strengthen my VMO muscles and my glutes.  It turns out bicycling is good for those muscles as well.  In a few days I'll evaluate where I'm at.  No running this coming week for sure.  Sorry to my running teammates, but I'm going to post a 0 next week.  I'm hoping that I can ease back into running starting the week of May 16th.
