Maybe the few days rest wasn't useless - my left hamstring feels somewhat better despite running last night. DVOA's sprints on Sunday will be the acid test. Even if things go south, I don't think I'll try extended total rest again. Though I suppose I might try a week of only cycling and swimming if things get desperate. Happy Canada Day to all!

Commute with diversion to finally see "Revenge of the Sith" on the way home.
