Weekend contained both heartbreak and side-splitting laughter. I had every intention of racing Shamrockn' half marathon this weekend and planned my days accordingly.
Guzzled water like it was going out of style all week. I was drinking nearly 70 oz of water a day, which although it doesn't sound like much more than the 8 8 oz glasses recommended was a lot for me. Did a second test run of 4 miles on friday and the hip.felt.fine. Went to bed early on friday night but tossed and turned because a dog on the next block was barking. All. Fkng. NIGHT. At 3 a.m. it was still barking. For a sample of what I heard all night, click here.
Saturday continued on my waterfest while I took RugRat #1 to the crackhousefleet feet and bought her some brand new running shoes. About a month ago, she suddenly announced that she wanted to run a 5k. I asked her, "Are you sure???" she was emphatic in her reply, "YES!" so I signed her up for the Run Rocklin 5k. It was after…
So I suck as a
blogger still.Getting back into the
groove of writing is almost as difficult as starting to run or bike or swim on
a consistant and regular basis.I am
getting better at it though. I cannot fathom how I used to get up at 4:15 a.m.
to go run.It seems like such a lifetime

become our new normal.Its implementing
the change that is so painful and difficult. Ok, done with the philosophy!Yesterday’s track workout was a killer.I haven’t been very consistent in my
running.Some weeks im doing 15 miles,
others 0.Again, habit is just something
I need to build again.the track workout
was 2 miles warm up; strides; 5X 1k @5min; 2 mile cool down. I only managed the
warm up, strides and half the 1k workout and 1.25 mile cool down.I was cooked.My times were slow on the 1ks, my tummy was a little off and I just felt
LETHARGIC in general.
However, on a social level, I had a grand time.Talked with several long-time fr…
It's been a very long time since I've posted mostly because I didn't know what to write about. My life is so different than it was a year ago, I hardly recognize myself.
I am still not able to run. I've been to several doctors, PTs etc but to no avail. All diagnoses confirm the first --high hamstring tendinopathy. I've had several instances of grand improvement for a short time period (I.e. a few days) where I have no pain. Then I do something as simple as bend down to pick something up and my injury comes back along with the pain.I feel like if I do heavy weights at the gym, the resulting muscle soreness diminishes my awareness of the tendon pain. MRI completely normal in September 2012MWFSu I do core work from an iTunes App from "Daniel Miller" TThSa I do my PT exercises.Somewhere during the week I do some weights at the gymI ran on the treadmill 1 mile last week at 13:45 pace. I just went ahead and said "fuck it". My heart rate was 155 at t…
