First decent run in I don't know how long. Suppose I could look back in the running log, but I'm too lazy for that. It was certainly before the Achilles and hamstring stretch this spring/early summer. (yes, I wrote "stretch" on purpose)
Might have even been last summer before the knee when whack.
In the interest of full disclosure, it was only 3 miles, and I did make a pit stop at the POP next to the softball field behind St. Colette's Catholic Church. (just short of mile 2). And, yeah, my pace isn't what I'd like it to be.
But I felt good and there were no issues before, during, or after with the seemingly cursed left leg. Calf stayed loose, hammy didn't hurt, Achilles was quiet.
Perhaps just as important was that I actually felt good. Aside from the aches and pains, that hasn't happened in nearly a year.
I'll wait a few more days or weeks before I get too excited, though. At least I didn't spend most of the run wondering if it was time to hang up the HOKA's for good - a thought that's been creeping into my head frequently this year.
Funny smell from the dishwasher on Saturday. After I cleaned out the build up of gunk I ran a test cycle, where I discovered water where it didn't belong. The gunk had apparently been acting as a sealant where the actual seal at the bottom of the door had deteriorated. Got rid of the gunk and the seal at the same time. Thanks to Amazon I had a new seal come the next day and only had to do a few dishes by hand. Water stays where it belongs now.
One thing I'm not good at (among many) is lawncare. I can mow that grass but not much more. I have a service do the fertilizing, but still have issues with getting the watering right. Always too much or too little, often both in different areas at the same time. Right now I'm trying to fill in a few bare spots from some fungus damage. Not confidant.
