I took the cross-training to heart and got in about 30 miles this weekend on the bike. I also did some swimming...which didn't go too well. I'm not a great swimmer. I can freestyle for about 50 yards (I think the pool is in yards) and then I need a break. I'm sure with the right amount of conditioning I can get better, but it's humbling considering that I think I'm in pretty darn good cardiovascular shape.
Big news for the day; I went on a 4.5 mile run and experienced very little leg pain! I'm stoked. I was hurting a bit on slanted surfaces which seemed to irritate my IT band a bit. Some of that was, I'm sure, mental.
