Yesterday's efforts were celebrated appropriately with curry, cheesecake, chocolate cake and a good slosh of red wine at my brother's house last night. Consequently, I tricked my body into action today by disguising the run as a trip to recover the abandoned car. Following the race, I fully expected to ache a lot more today; however, the only truly painful part of my body appeared to be my tummy. I think about 50% of the calories I burned yesterday were used by my poor stomach muscles (or what remains of them) trying to hinder my post-Christmas Belly of Mass Destruction's chances of global destruction.
I've just logged my run on Running Free and thought how fitting the option "Running - Carrying Weight" is.
