    Hey, look. I'm running.

    Oooohhhh!!! Cross training! My favorite! Glad you are running again.

    Hey, look. I'm running.

    Eh, cross-training is pretty worthless. 😉
  4. The idea to run a 20k time trial started because I was registered for the Dam to DSM 20k race. I'd entered long before it rescheduled then turned virtual (before COVID and even before my hip issue!). The virtual race window was August 31 through September 7 and I planned to run a hard 20k on September 5, but due to being overly cautious with a hamstring I tweaked lifting I ended up just running an easy 20k that day. The hammy was back to 100% just a few days later, and for some reason I still wanted to run a 20k, so Christian and I both asked our coaches to schedule it on Friday, September

    Hey, look. I'm running.

    Glad to hear you're back running. I know strength/cross training is no fun, but I figure if it helps keep me running it is worth it.

    Hey, look. I'm running.

    A couple of weeks in now after taking a couple of weeks off, I think I can confirm my previous diagnosis of tendonitis. This is actually from an old basketball injury. In fact, my last basketball injury and the reason I retired from the sport altogether. I was semi-retired at the time and let some guys talk me into coming for a night because they needed a player to round out the team and avoid a forfeit. Took a fall and landed on my knee and was in pain for a while. Some months later I went in for an MRI and the doc called it a tendonosis. Been there ever since, although it's mostly bette

    Starting up. Slowing down.

    This painting stuff sounds exhausting.
  9. Little projects lead to bigger projects.

    Starting up. Slowing down.

    Unfortunately being a little bit hurt when we are older is alot different than being a little bit hurt when we were younger.

    Starting up. Slowing down.

    I consider it a productive day if I vacuum for 10 minutes.
  12. Congrats! 26 miles alone is not something I would do, but having a few friends makes a big difference. My LRGs are still not meeting for runs. It is a sad lonely year.

    Starting up. Slowing down.

    With T-Rex getting a little more independent at school and Mrs. Dave working full time, I find myself with more free time than I've been used to over the years. Not running a ton adds even more. So I decided a couple of weeks ago to do some deep cleaning around the house, starting with the bedrooms. I imagined that I would whip through one per day after work and be done in less than a week (4 BRs). You can already see where this is going. The first room when just as planned. Removed all the furniture and wall decor, gave the carpet a good vacuum and shampoo, then put it all back. Only too
  14. Great RR, John! Looks like you all had a great day! I dropped my muffin on a long bike ride this summer. I was devastated! I can only imagine the Sports Bean. Caffeinated Sports Bean. 😣
  15. Great RR, John. I promise not to turn you in for banditing.
  16. I’m fortunate to have a really great, supportive LRG based at the YMCA in my town. Group runs are scheduled at various times every day of the week and there’s usually always someone ready to jump in on whatever workout shows up on my training schedule. Still I don’t think I truly appreciated the benefit of a solid LRG until everything shut down last March and all running races cancelled or went virtual. Several sub-groups of our LRG popped up to train for and run virtual Fall races together. The Mohawk-Hudson Marathon was on my calendar for October and promptly cancelled, as expect
  17. Your run savvy and experience shows (not to mention craziness); great self pacing for both the 50K and 5K.
  18. Glad to hear Tempo is still healthy and pooping on the neighbor's lawn.
  19. Well, there's crazy and then there's crazy. Hope you wished those guys a nice day when you chicked them.
  20. This was supposed to be the summer I took on my first 1/2 Iron Tri -- swim 1.2, bike 56, run 13.1, but like everything else it was canceled due to Covid. I've been riding with a great group of people for the past 3 months. Many of them are veterans of the Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard. They asked me to join their fundraising bike team for the Foster 100. The Foster 100 raises money for service dogs for veterans. The Covid rules for the event were to accumulate 100 miles in the week of Septemeber 7 - 13. Since my tri was cancelled I signed up. In the meanwhile a local RD sa
  21. For those that just received an email announcing a siftware update, well, this is it. Obviously a typo. Anyhow, if you encounter issues, please post them here. Thank you

    It's been 6 months...

    Haha, I love finding those perfect phone setting spots. Most of mine are taken with my phone in a little nook where you put your hand to open the hatch back of my car.
