Missed that week, however that happened.
Ran again this week (Wednesday) for two miles. Biked after for 8. Total about an hour of work. The bike kept the ITB/hip/etc. nice and loose. No residual tightness or pain. I may be onto something here. Always scoffed at the pro football/basketball players who pedaled on a stationary bike on the sidelines/bench while they waited to get back into the game. I'll stop scoffing now and will be combining this run/ride thing from here on out. At least when the weather permits two wheels.
Since I've been looking into cycles, everywhere I go on the net is filled with adds for them. Nothing with a comma in the price. I'm not "getting into" cycling. I'm just looking for a way to get back to running.
Spent the last weekend in UT for the 45th year HS reunion. Crazy where they found all those old people. From what I've heard over the years, we're an unusually tight group as far as graduating classes go. It was a big class (585 - don't ask why that's a number I still remember). We've had something every five years since 1982. I remember being voted most likely to never get married ... the week before our wedding. Ha. Anyway, this year there were 65 in attendance, including several who haven't come before. Maybe we're starting to wonder how many chances we'll have. We lost at least two more this year.
Made sure to schedule a lunch date with Kevin and Misti - two of the OG Loopsters. Such great people. Happy to see them and hear that they're doing well. Awesome memories.
Another test today for this side pain. Probably just old guy can't heal stuff, but best to be sure. Then an appointment to donate blood. That'll probably nix the ride this afternoon, but who knows? Riding is SO much easier than running. Maybe I can still go for a few miles. Long one tomorrow.
