I’ve noticed that there is some barely noticeable swelling on the lower inside part of my ankle. There is also a slight, half-dollar sized, bruise on the inside just in front my achilles tendon. The situation has improved greatly from Friday, but I’ll have to see how the healing progresses. I may test the ankle […]
Ran 8.26 miles in 1:04:36 yesterday. Felt plantar fasciitis-like pain in front of my heel. After walking down two flights of stairs, I felt even more generalized pain in the ankle and heel areas. Today, I’ve been using biofreeze, ibuprofen, ice, and a ankle support. My ankle occasionally pops, and everything magically feels better briefly. […]
If you’re talking on a cell phone (at 7 am, even) so intently that you cannot see what is in front of you and cannot remember your turn signal… Hang up, or park your car. And don’t park your car on or across the sidewalk. It’s for pedestrians, not cars. If you cannot see the […]

3 Marathon States!!! Indiana is only a 5k, and Kansas is only a 4 miler.Kentucky and Tennessee are both half marathons (actually, 2 half marathons each)
The steep downhill at the Hatfield-McCoy marathon has trashed my quads. Going down steps is a major struggle, and walking is pretty awkward as well. I’ve been using BIOFREEZE a little more than usual and occasional Advil. I’m also feeling pretty exhausted in general from the race, even 48 hours afterward.
As for race report: My perspective will be tainted by the fact that my legs were still sore (hamstrings, gluts) from crashing into waves on Thursday and a 12 hour car ride Friday. All I had at the start was a 8’50” pace on the flat/downhill start. It got worse from there. My time was […]
