Lunch: off. Slept too late. Hungover. Takes a good one for me to miss a run.

PM: 4 miles on the treadmill. HR 137.  + 20' StairMaster. HR 144.

Legs were quaky and I was a bit dizzy and off balance, so I cut it short and did some cross training, which felt fine. I have had pressure in my right ear for a day or so and think it is from sweat as opposed to the swimming we did in Maine. Hoping it is not an ear infection.

Night: AIS, PT, and planks (been a long time)

Never heard a hangover referred to as a "good one". :)

In the same way that a car wreck or a pimple might be described as "a good one" :-)
