Tuesday afternoon in the Park

Well, I went to Veteran's Park, to do a quick run. I am still really sore from playing Hockey on Sunday. I decided to run and try and work the soreness out with a 3-4 mile run.

The park was buzzing with kids at the playground area. I saw one of my oldest son's friends. He was there with his mother, and 2 younger brothers. They just recently moved to Robbinsville.

I ended up running 3.5 miles in 28:10. It was a slow painful start, but as the run went along, I felt a lot better.
I need to run on Thursday, but have plans that nite. I either need to run before work, or get out and go mid afternoon, but the heat might be here by then.

On a side note.. Since I have been planning my marathon, I have hit up a few of the supplement companies for samples, with much luck! Clif sent me some clif shots, recovery drink, and bars/ Cytomax sent some recovery mix, also, and Hammer, I had to purchase a product, and they added a bunch of freebies to the order, along with some training books.
I will post my experiences with these products, when I try them.

I tried the Clif Shot Recovery drink. It was french vanilla flavored, and it seemed to help the legs afterwards. It tasted a bit chalky, but overall, not bad.

You'll have to let us know how you like all the freebies.

Nice job on the run.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I look forward to reading your reviews of the freebie products you got and wish you the best with your marathon training.

This NY Ranger fan will have to learn to accept a Flyer fan to my little slice of the blog world. LOL. Happy running. I have added you to my blog links.
