    great Mini-Brick: Run 2.01 mi 00:20 09:58 pace

    A short run off the bike. Making it short kept it easy on the knee, and bricking it onto a short ride gave better overall leg workout than the ride by itself. Have a great Friday!

      I have expect to see something to do with your grocery list when I click on that link, as if you're saying "Hey, here's more info about my coconut milk and cabbage". LOL. Weird I know. Looks like a great ride, Vern!

      He has a really good stretch at the beginning of that class that I need to watch again. No doubt great for your knees too.

      I just came back from yoga, but I had to sample some of these stretches as my IT band is always so much tighter than the rest of me. I bookmarked to try the whole sequence later. Thanks, Vern!
