It’s been a month since I survived a car crash that demolished my car. Since then, we’ve closed on our new home, bought a new car, and spent two days’ worth of effort moving in. Because of the second car payment, our finances are not as secure as I’d like them to be, but we’re capable […]
It’s been a while since I’ve taken a spill during a run… seems like it’s been a year and a half since my last fall, and almost 5 years since one similar in nastiness to this one, and that one was at mile 2 of a 10 mile race. There I was, lost in a […]
In terms of overall enjoyment, this was probably my best run ever, 5.3 miles in 44:31 minutes. 69’F, sunny, slight breeze, Friday, no big meetings left this week, legs fairly fresh… if every run felt like this, I’d run 100s of miles per week. I’ve spent the last week trying to squeeze in double workouts […]
12 miles, 1:55:06 (9:36/mile), 10 straight weeks running. This was my longest run in almost 5 months. I didn’t get to start bright and early when the day is the coolest. I didn’t run in a public park today (not even through Vettiner). I didn’t run across anyone else who was running, and virtually no […]
Ok, so I had an MRI yesterday, and it shows that I have a bulging disc between L4 and L5. Running doesn’t hurt and things seem to be getting better, although slowly. We’ll see what physical therapy brings. I believe I’m going to be avoiding anything that resembles a sit-up now for the rest of […]
2.9 miles in 27’55”. Not the easiest run I’ve ever had, and I’ve run 18.5 miles in 6 consecutive days. A little knee pain, a little piriformis pain, etc… I’ll probably have to run my 3 miles tomorrow at a painfully slow pace for me (which I thought I was already doing). via RunningAHEAD – […]
I intended to go outside to walk 2 miles, despite my back being pretty tight still. Leaving the gym, I had to decide whether I wanted to bring my iPod Classic (arm band) and phone with me (no pockets). Doing so would have guaranteed that I wouldn’t have run. However, I left both behind. I […]
Piriformis Syndrome Strengthening. Having a few minor piriformis issues. I’ve already begun incorporating the “bridging” exercise from this site, but also need to add the “side to side with pelvic tilt” exercise.
