    Knee update

    Coming along. My routine the last couple of weeks has been 4 miles on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, then 6 on Saturday. Nothing to brag about, but at least it's running. As for the knee, Ralph continues to improve, slowly. I notice him about half the time, but the pain level is mostly 1-3 on a 10 scale. I'd like to be going further and faster of course, but I don't want to wreck anything, so I'll stay with the current state for now. I only occasionally see other runners, although last Saturday there was a group of 4 (appropriately distanced, but definitely together) on my way pa
  3. I think it's called cross training because it makes me cross. I injured my knee playing basketball a couple of years ago and I decided I wouldn't play anymore because I didn't want to take time off from running again. About 3 weeks ago, I played basketball again and was surprised and happy to find out I could still cut and move without any sign of injury or weakness.
  4. I asked her multiple times if she would instead go backwards and turn 11, but she kept saying no.
  5. My library had books 1-11 of that series and then I read the final 2 as ebooks. I also hope your knee starts behaving!
  6. Congratulations on your anniversary, and becoming a member of a parent of a teenager club πŸ™‚.
  7. I was cleaning out/painting my daughter's old bedroom and noticed that among her collection of books was the entire Unfortunate Events series. Don't know if I'd be allowed to loan them out, so I'm glad you found the full set to read. I tried reading Outlander last month, but could only get halfway through the second one. I did catch up on the three National Geographic Magazine issues I was behind, though. Now, if this knee would just behave ...

  9. Since I start every week day run at 5:00-5:30 a.m., it is really not a big deal!
  10. ya I was kind of stunned.. I'd need a day to recover, never mind fitting in all those other activities before and after.. as my son's football coach used to say 'mental toughness !' (I don't have it anymore πŸ˜‰ we're impressed.. well done !
  11. A 5am 20K TT to start your day, amazing.

    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. πŸ˜‰
  16. 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

    This painting stuff sounds exhausting.

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

    I consider it a productive day if I vacuum for 10 minutes.
  23. 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.

    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
  25. 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. 😣
