ORN: Biked again yesterday. More by default than by design. I had a meeting downtown and it's much easier to bike than to drive. And much less expensive the parking or taking a taxi. It ended up being about 90 minutes of biking total.
I realized that I had done something for 5 days in a row. Not a good idea for me, so I took the day off from running. We'll see how the legs feel later in the day. I may take today off completely.
I guess I should explain what "ORN" means.
In the OLD days, there was an internet list called the Dead Runners Society. This was back in the early 1990's before the internet and email groups were everywhere. This was a group of academics and government workers, mostly, who shared their opinions and thoughts about running - and everything else.
To make SURE that at least SOME part of the post had SOMETHING to do with running they imposed the "ORN" rule. It stands for Obligatory Running Note. And it required the writer to describe their latest run. Some people went on to call them OBN [Obligatory Biking Note] or OSN [Swimming] or OYN [Yoga]. I just call everything an ORN.
So, to keep ME on message I'm going to begin each Blog with and ORN about my training for the Chicago Marathon.
