Down Time

In light of all my post-Waldo aches and pains, I've decided that some down time is in order. Although I'm thrilled that my sport medicine doc said he didn't "think" I had any sort of stress fracture in the left leg, a little break from running seems not only prudent but appealing. Saturday will mark two weeks of zero running. Plan to give the legs at least another two weeks off before starting back up. So far, only minor irritability and feelings of lardassishness. I'm sure the next couple of weeks won't be quite as easy. In the meantime, I'll do a little riding, a little walking, lots of hip & shin strengthening exercises, a little more blogging (maybe), and somewhat less eating. Any other suggestions for maintaining some small level of fitness would be welcome.
