Spirit of the Marathon

Mostly a rest day yesterday - although I did find my hand weights in the garage and did a couple of drills. Doesn't count as a home work out though more as planning for one.

Started on the house jobs, cleaned down the outside of the house and started the deck but are plenty more things to do. A set of outdoor furniture needs painting apparently.

Last night I watched "Spirit of the Marathon" and it was really quite good. Set as a documentary it follows a number of fun and elite runners in the lead up to the Chicago Marathon. Well worth seeing and quite motivating. Motivating enough for me to go for a run shortly.

In bad news I found my bike's gear cable for the rear derailler has snapped at the shifting end. A bit unweildy being stuck in top gear and will be looking to get that fixed tomorrow.

I want to see that movie but I don't think the DVD is out here yet. Did you watch it at the cinema or on DVD?

Riding the bike 'fixed gear' would definitely be a good workout :) Your post reminded me that I want to see that film. Will have to see if DVD is available.
