    Comeback 2022 - week 24

    Riding a bike is easy peasy. Suppose I could push harder, but my HR seems to be in about the right zone most of the time, so...

    Comeback 2022 - week 24

    I have to look at my last entry every time to make sure I get the week number right. That's not because I'm old is it? Spent most of last week walking through the woods with 150 teenagers for a church youth conference. Done this before, doing a fairly lax re-enactment of what's know as the handcart pioneer trek. In 1856-60, Brigham Young came up with a brilliant plan to have several thousand of the poorest converts to the LDS faith from Europe (mostly England and Denmark) just walk to Utah from Omaha. That's an oversimplification, of course. Feel free to ask or do some research for more precise details if you're inclined. The point is, they really wanted to be together with the rest of the church and were willing to do just about anything to get there. Every year, congregations all over the US (maybe other countries, too, but I have no experience with that), take their youth out for a few days to lug their camping gear around and talk about those walkers and the personal sacrifices they made for their religion. The few days out of town are pretty tame by comparison, but taking phones and showers away for 3 days is a tough row for these kids to hoe. They did awesome. Anyway, for me it just meant getting a little stinky and not running or riding the first half of the week. Was on my feet most of the time but only walked about 12 miles (estimated). Adventures in cycling. Six miles on Thursday when I got back - trip to UPS for an Amazon return. 12 on Friday - trip to the dry cleaners that Mrs. Dave likes to use. Don't ask me why we can't go to the one just down the street. 20 on Saturday - helped a family move into their new home, then made a wide swing on Hines Drive. Trying to wave, smile, and/or nod to people when I ride so I'm not one of those guys. Still thinking about upgrading the wheels. Still in a quandary about the cost. Cheap used one could give me unforeseen issues since I've no idea what kind of shape it would be in. Used cars I can evaluate, used bikes not so much. Not at all ready to commit anything with a comma in the price tag. Was able to talk to a friend who rides yesterday about it and he had some recommendations. Don't think I mentioned that when I took Abby to my Wednesday activity with the church kids - we were doing a little auto education - one of them broke the handle to the hood release cable. Replaced that on Thursday with a new one. Changed lugs and the valve cover gasket on Mrs. Dave's CR-V. First try wasn't quite right and there was a leak. Second time worked, but accidentally grounded the cable from the alternator to the case and lost power. Turned out I blew part of what's called a multifuse block. $15 but the closest one was 22 miles away. This was on Saturday about lunchtime and she had Abby at work. 44 miles was a little too ambitious a bike ride for me, so I ordered one from Amazon and waited another day. Then I missed one wiring and one hose connection while putting it all back together and so of course the car ran worse than before. My ineptness is a big reason I hate working on cars. Fortunately, I have friends who are better at this than I am and one of them bailed me out. Wednesday is a travel day. Utah for the 45 year HS reunion (that's 1977 if you don't care to do the math). I'll work for the mornings and early afternoons Thursday and Friday, then come back on the 4th. Almost a week gone using just one day of vacation. Nice. But flying Spirit, so just a backpack and 7 hours in the Las Vegas airport to get there. This morning, I ran (you read that right) two miles. Slow, of course. ITB seemed OK. Trochanter was almost good. Got a little sore for most of the rest of the morning, but not terrible. We'll see what it's like after working all day and 10 miles on the bike.

    Comeback 2022 - week 23

    I'm going to keep calling a comeback until I get officially shut down. Decision on that may not come until July or August. First will be the new PT group, referred by both my PCP and the urologist. When I mentioned to the latter doc about my side/rib/gut pain, she thought it sounded more muscular than internal organ related, so threw in the PT consult. Then when I saw the PCP to follow up my insulin resistance (I'm protesting by not calling it "diabetes" since I'm producing plenty of insulin; cells just aren't using it), I mentioned the whole ITB/hip/back thing and he referred me to the same group for PT. In fact, the same doc, who is apparently a sub-3 hour marathoner. Only trouble is I can't get an appointment until mid-July. In the meantime, more cycling. And the more I ride this thing, the more I feel like I need an upgraded machine. Did I mention the other day how I felt like I was cruising along pretty quickly, only to be passed (with authority) by guy who looked like he was out for a Sunday stroll? The other thing I notice is that I'm averaging about what I could run back in the day. Not that I'm frustrated that I can't run as fast as I did when I was 25 (although that would be nice). Just an observation. And of course I'm not ready to make a major investment. But I should have something that at least fits my size instead of the 12 year-old son I bought it for in 1999. I should also have something that's appropriate for how and where I'm riding. Not doing any technical trails. Mostly streets and bike paths around town. Don't think I need a serious road bike, nor a mountain. So, hybrid? I've done the online research, but could use some advice. Suppose I'll throw the question into Loopville and see what the cyclists there have to say. Rode 6 miles to carpool out to a scout ranch an hour and a half from here on Saturday. Big youth conference happening next week and we were checking out the trails and camping areas we plan on using. Fair amount of walking. Then another 6 home. Took yesterday off, but plan 10 or so this afternoon. Pulled my shirt off to shower after I got home and found a little red guy with what looked like 10-12 legs crawling up my sleeve. No question it was a tick. There were nine of us going through the woods that day and I was the 4th to have picked up one the unwanted passenger. Amazon delivered a can of permethrin today, so hopefully I can get through the conference without donating any blood to his friends.

    Really appreciate this right now, since I'm not able to run and just hoping to get back on the roads at least once more before I hang up the Hoka's for good.

    MAYbe

    I'm guessing there'd be more about the diamond hunting if you'd found any big ones. The word "marvelous" always makes me think of Billy Crystal.
  7. Two weeks between entries. You know what that means. Either: 1) Been running so much there's been no time to post. B) The last test run was so terrible that I've been too bummed to try putting anything into words. Yeah, so I went out for another couple. This time (Tuesday of last week - my new plan was to go Tue-Thu-Sat), it hurt so bad I decided to wait longer before trying again. Since there are times when it hurts walking up stairs or lifting, I'll wait at least until those are pain free. Then there's the related hip pain. As long as that's around, I presume the ITB will still be a problem. As a result, no running for about a week and a half now. Getting some walking in when I can. Had an appointment with the ophthalmologist on Wednesday. Walked there and back. Five miles. Yesterday I needed another PSA draw since that's been a year. Four miles. Sometimes I'll just go out walking. Had my first follow up with the internist on Friday last. He was really happy with my glucose numbers and the fact that I've lost ten pounds since January. The same ten pounds that prompted Mrs. Dave to worry that I have pancreatic cancer and I'm also seeing a urologist and having a bunch of other tests to make sure I don't. So far, they've all come back negative, which of course means it's all good. Then on Friday I took my son's old bicycle, put air in the tires, checked and adjusted the brakes, and raised the seat and handlebars. I've been thinking for awhile about switching to a bike for some of the errands that I do around town. With gas topping $5/gallon, it seemed like the right moment. So, on Saturday I biked two miles to help a family load up a moving truck, then came home, adjusted the seat a little more, and planned a trip to pick up some fabric for a little Christmas project I've been working on. Seven miles one way to Joann Fabrics. Helped that it was perfect weather for riding a bike, and I really enjoyed the speed. I must admit the speed was more pedestrian than cycling. But it's a 25 year old machine that's really sized for a 12 year old kid. And apparently Garmin doesn't pause like when you're running and I forgot to stop it a few times while I was in and out of stores. But, whatever. On the roads for about three hours, logged almost 22 miles. Failed to mention I was also using the only helmet that we had around the house, which was also 20+ years old. It seemed adequate until I took it off and the end of the day, when it sort of fell apart into two pieces. I had noticed that Walmart/Target/Meijer all had helmets for about $30, so when I made my last stop of the day for groceries at Costco (automobile this time) and saw they had some for $32, I grabbed my upgrade. Last night I Amazon-ed a pair of riding gloves. And I have four new badges in my Garmin app. Sunday after church I spent an hour and put in 12 miles. Now I'll have to decide if I'm going to spend any money on an adult bicycle. But the bottom line is, I still can't run. Seven months now. I hate that.
  8. Still sub 2 despite it all. Sounds like a beautiful day for a race. I did the BS full in 2011. Great course along the water. I remember trying my first GU that day and almost tossing my cookies.

    Comeback 2022 - week 20

    I'm just barely over the line for the diagnosis, and am insulin resistant as opposed to not producing enough insulin, so a donut or two on occasion is fine. I'm not going to go into a coma. Frankly, it seems like there should be another term to separate it from Type 2 diabetes, but that's another rant. And don't miss my point - there seems to be no correlation to my diet/exercise with the glucose numbers. This week I had a swing from 142 (not good) to 116 (pretty good) on consecutive days with the exact same menu and activity level. Not to mention I have ZERO of the symptoms tat are supposed to accompany high glucose numbers. Still looking for answers. We've had the conversation about XT before. I have looked into borrowing a bike this year, so you can be smug about that if you like. 😜

    Comeback 2022 - week 20

    2 miles. Maybe 4. My plan is to go out for a couple today, making it 2 runs for the week. Two doctor appointments on Thursday this week. First was the follow up with the ortho on this ITB/hip thing, since PT was a bust for the most part. Not that I don't appreciate the work and human contact. Built some glute strength. But he never did address the root cause and that's disappointing. The ITB is all knotted up, which is putting downward pressure on the hip, which in turn is stressing the attachment point of the gluteus medius and greater trochanter. Official diagnosis for that pain is bursitis. Let's back up to Tuesday. I worked the ITB pretty hard with the foam roller, stretched a bunch and went out to see what I could see. After an almost six month layoff, I was happy enough with a 1/4 jog, 100m walk. The good news was that it ITB was quiet the whole time. Felt the GM pulling a little bit on the run segments. Stretched after and it all seemed OK both that evening and the next day. Of course, after reporting this to the ortho and having him say there wasn't anything else he could do for me, both laces hurt all day yesterday. Today it seems OK, so I'll give it another go, assuming the weather cooperates. T-storms are in the forecast. Also need to cut the grass. I'm not officially participating in No-Mow May, but you wouldn't know it from the looks of my lawn. Think we're up to about six inches. Doc visit number two was with a gastroenterologist. Don't go to one of these if you don't have to. Been waiting on this appointment since March and it was almost delayed again to July. Anyway, this consult was for some stomach issues I've been having since last fall. Those issues, combined with my recent diabetes diagnosis and weight loss (10 pounds), makes Mrs. Dave nervous about "C". Gave some blood to check the liver (all good), going to get my digestive tract scoped on Monday, another appointment at another place next month (don't remember exactly what for) and a follow-up with the GI doc in July. Seems like since the Ragnar /ITB injury, I've just gotten all messed up everywhere. I became old in what seems like the blink of an eye. Since I've been tracking my glucose levels every morning, it's come down to a mostly reasonable amount. But it's sort of wonky and unpredictable. Don't know what that's about. Perfect example is the past two days, where I had the same dinner the night before and did no walking or running. 142 (not good) to 116 (pretty good). I'm supposed to be between 80-130 (yellow and red lines). The lowest day in the past week (99) was the morning after I ate two donuts and had a bunch of Red Robin steak fries and half a Banzai Burger for dinner. Had an interesting visitor this morning. Opened the back curtains to find this guy standing about 3 feet from the window on my patio. He wandered around the yard for a few more minutes, ate some leaves from the shrubbery, then hopped the fence and went off in the direction of the woods, having to cross two more yards and a street to get there.

    Comeback 2022 - week 19

    Another week, another .... Nothing, really. Had final PT session on Monday and have an appointment with the ortho on Thursday coming up. Really hope he doesn't want to talk about my hip. IT'S NOT THE HIP! OK, I feel better now. Emotionally anyway. Also have an appointment (at Mrs. Dave's insistence) with a GI doc on Thursday. This is part of our quest to get to the bottom of this diabetes mystery. There are two possible outcomes from this line of inquiry. Either a) they find nothing and there's no reason for me to have insulin resistance issues, or 2) I have pancreatic cancer. Awesome. Plans for our Europe trip are going slightly better. We need to trim the itinerary a little so we aren't over-scheduled. Probably will have to skip Poland with everything happening in eastern Europe. At this point, broadly speaking, it'll be like this: Couple of days in Paris Day in Normandy Day (maybe 2) in Amsterdam Couple of days in Berlin We want to get to a few more WWII sites, but we're not in our 20's anymore, so that may be too much. Speaking of travel, my 45th HS reunion is this summer and I've been waffling heartily about going, since we can fly to Europe for less than airfare to UT is right now. EXCEPT, this morning I figured a work around that saves me half and makes it affordable. A pair of one-ways, a long layover in Las Vegas and some points I have on Southwest. Old guys like me should go to these because who knows how many we have left, right? Two baseballs games this week, both complimentary and both from work events. Monday Mrs. Dave had tickets from her work (Tigers lost). Thursday I had a work outing that including BBQ and a game (Tigers lost again). Still, an afternoon at the park is better than an afternoon at work.

    Comeback 2022 - week 18

    Another week of zero progress. Plenty of strength work. Pushing a weighted sled, resistance bands, bridges, lunges. Hip flexibility stuff. PT says he's impressed with how much strength I have for someone my age. 🤣 The last two sessions he's had me run a little. Just up and down the indoor field. Felt a little pain where the ITB attaches to the rear of the hip. If I knew that's all it would do I'd keep running. But it gets progressively worse and hurts more later as things cool. He is ready to throw in the towel and send me back to the doctor. About time. This morning the pain in my side is back, too. Mrs. Dave says I'm just old. No doubt that's right, but I'm not convinced that's all it is. Bought a new printer this week. It arrived without one of the setup cartridges. When I told Amazon about it, they asked if I wanted a refund or a replacement and to keep the one I got. Told them all I needed was the one cartridge, to no avail. So I researched how to start the printer without a setup cartridge, took the refund and bought two new cartridges. Free printer! Thanks, Amazon. Still no dining room table. We were planning a trip to the UK this summer with some friends but that's fallen through. We talked about several things to do instead and have (finally) decided (probably) on a 10 day tour of World War II sites - Normandy, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam and (hopefully, depending on the Ukraine situation) Warsaw/Krakow/Auschwitz. 45th HS reunion is this summer. Hoping airfare drops a little before deciding about making that trip. Happy to go, just don't know if I'm $600 happy.

    Comeback 2022 - week 15-17

    Losing steam. PT continues. Went to Boston to see DS1 run. Met with him and his girls. Helped them navigate the suburbs from Hopkinton to Copley Square. Were able to see him at mile 4 in Ashland, 6-1/2 in Framingham, 9 at Fisk Pond, 10 in Natick, 13 and 16 in Wellesley, 20 in Newton, and 22 at Cleveland Circle. Props for the new tracking app, which let us see if we had time to get where we wanted in time. Obviously, he had the more physically challenging day, but it was pretty stressful getting to all those places with three adults and three kids (aged 7, 9 & 11). Then there's the whole finding your people after the race fun. And parking in downtown Boston on Patriot's Day at the end of the marathon. I was able to meet irl my very first friend on the Loop, SIbbetson. Thirteen years ago she was the first to comment on my very first post. Closest we've come before was when I stopped for a day in Reed Springs, MO for a tiny marathon. Think she was still in Kansas then. We texted Sunday while the family was at the expo and she was eating lunch close by with three of her fast friends. Long time dream fulfilled. Huge snowstorm across New York state the day we were driving back so we took a loop to the south and came home through Pennsylvania, stopping for a quick visit to ...(wait for it!). (Who is that old guy, anyway?) The furnace has been acting up the past few weeks and it was 50o in the house when we got home. Had a guy come look at it. Probably the controls going out. It's 34 years old. So, we got a new one. They came out today to install a special chimney liner needed for high efficiency furnaces in older homes (ours is from 1966). They almost had to call for a mason to tear into the chimney, which would have been who knows how much, but in the end were able to get the liner done as is. Then we noticed water in the basement coming from the dishwasher. Leaky inlet valve. That - fortunately - I can do myself. $20. Four weeks later, we still don't have a dining room table. Can't find anything we really like. There you go.
  17. What a wild ride! You look great in all those pics, though. THRE CODE ABBYS? That's nuts. Sorry I missed you with everything else going on. DS really smoked the course and we were scrambling all morning, trying to keep up with him. Maybe this ITB will heal and I can join you next year.

    Comeback 2022 - week 14

    Each week seems more and more of an exercise of the purest optimism. No PT this week since I'm in Idaho. Traveled over last weekend to save vacation days. Stayed the nights in Coralville, IA and Cheyenne, WY on the way. Could have easily made it to Laramie the second day but wanted to watched the Final Four games. UNC busted my pick for the winner, but I had Kansas, so I won both the family bracket challenge and took 3rd in the work game. That may be the first time I've won a bracket challenge. Things haven't worked out as smoothly as I planned here, but most of the important things got done. It started on the drive out. Ten miles on the road and the tarp I had on the load just in case it rained was torn by the wind and I had to take it off. Stop at the next Home Depot and get a replacement or trust the weather forecast that said it was going to be clear all the way across? Went with choice B to avoid the hour delay and because the only thing in the back that might be damaged by rain was an old loveseat that we'd considered not even bringing. Woke up the next morning in Iowa to a cold, hard rain. Don't recall ever driving Iowa in the early spring. I have to say it won't be on my "Really want to do this again" list. Normally I see the corn along the freeway and it's a beautiful, lush green. Makes me proud to live in a country that feeds much of the world. Most of the rest was just as scenic, but nearing the Wyoming-Idaho border south of Jackson, things got a little better. The previous renters in their apartment had left a washer but no dryer, so I figured it'd be easy to find one on FB Marketplace or Craigslist on the cheap. And it was, except most of them didn't mention whether they were gas or electric models. Needed gas. At last found one for $75 and brought Dad along to pick it up. I had $70 cash but figured to Venmo anyway. Apparently selling used furniture is the woman's business and she wouldn't do Venmo because of the new tax law. Fortunately, Dad had a fin in his wallet. I get the machine back to the apartment and discover that the attachment hose was too short by two inches to reach the gas line coming out of the wall. So, off to Home Depot where they only had a full installation kit with a four foot hose. Fine. Back for the install and there was just one inch of clearance between the dryer and the door. Close one. But it went in and works and they're set with that. The main piece of furniture they needed was a bed. I brought a Hollywood bedframe with me. Planned to get a box spring and mattress, or maybe a platform frame and just a mattress. My dad said he was replacing his mattress and they could have it for free. He also knew the guy where it came from and he could probably make me a deal on a platform frame. When I finished work that day and came up from the basement where my temporary office is, Dad was ready to go. Remember, he's 89 and while still pretty sharp, he's slowed down quite a bit since he ran a 3:40 at the 1979 Golden Spike Marathon. So instead of a quick run to a few thrift and furniture stores to see what I could get, it became an entire afternoon of going to one place to find it was only open on Friday and Saturday, another that was no longer in business, then having to search for him because he'd gone to the WinCo to buy some peanut clusters. In the end, we came up empty as the places that normally had what I wanted were out of the size I needed. I'd remembered stopping to use the restroom at a Walmart somewhere in Iowa that they had a platform frame for $140. That was about half what the furniture stores wanted for them. So plan B became dropping in on the local store and just getting one. To be sure, I went into Mrs. Dave's Walmart.com account and ordered it for pick up. Then the credit card she had on file wasn't working. No problem. I used mine. A few minutes later I received an email that my order was cancelled because of suspicious activity on the account. Called Mrs. Dave and she ordered it. All set. Until we got to Walmart and they had no record of the order. Checked the account and the third transaction had also been cancelled because of suspicious activity. Went inside and the shelf was empty. Found someone to check in the back but she couldn't check because they were unloading a truck. Wouldn't be done until 10pm. There "might" be one at the other store across town. So we went there to find the shelf also empty. Asked another guy to check the back room and after what seemed like 3-4 days he came back with what was apparently the only queen platform bedframe in the state of Idaho. Oy vey. We'd been trying to get SIL to attached the license plates to his car for the last couple of months to no avail. Turns out he likely wouldn't have been able to anyway, since they were missing a bolt from the real and he had no idea. It also attached differently than the front so that needed to be figured out with one trip to Walmart and another to O'Reilly's. When I removed the temporary sticker from the back window I noticed the expiration date. February 28. SMH. When they bought their second car, it only had one key. Next quest was to get a second one, plus another one of each so they'd have spares just in case. I don't remember being quite so inept in my 20s, but maybe I was. Anyway, since we were at Walmart for something else and they make keys in their auto area, I waited five minutes to ask about getting one. Bet you didn't know that a 2001 Civic has a chipped ignition key. The associate trying to help was particularly inept herself, and I took the advice of another guy who was waiting for something at the counter and went to the Ace Hardware store down the road. I gulped when he told me it was $90 for the key and then we'd have to program it to mate with the car. Maybe Mel's Lock & Key could do better. Fine, where is that? On the other side of town. Good thing Idaho Falls isn't a big town. Mel would do it for $80, including programming, but we needed to bring the car. We were in my truck. So we went back to the apartment, traded the truck for the car and came back. Geez o Pete. Yesterday I realized that the can of spray adhesive I spent $30 for at O'Reilly's ... I had an almost full can back in Michigan from when I'd replaced T-Rex's headliner. I knew I had this job on the list to do but didn't even think to bring the adhesive that I'd paid $25 for five years ago. Anyway, we were able to get the edges that were falling off reasonably well re-attached and they don't have it secured to the roof with thumbtacks (I kid you not). Met one of my brothers (Robert, the Ironman) for dinner and had a good talk. Took the kids out to Red Robin last night and tried to wrap up my visit with some life advice. Item one is to do the things that need to be done. It's been a year since the wedding and she just barely got her name changed on her SS card so she can now change her residency to Idaho and get a driver's license and register her car in the state. Anyway, I'll head back today as soon as I get through with work. Most of what I came here for got done, although not without what seemed like hiccups at every turn. Life's like that most of the time. Like running.

    Comeback 2022 - week 13

    First week of PT. Like always, it seems the first part of PT is a waste of time. Doc referred me to a different place than I usually go, so I don't get to see my favorite Amanda with the magic hands. This guy, Dalton, is pretty good though. He seems to know his stuff and was good at listening. Assorted tests to see where I'm weak and where things hurt under what conditions. The IT Band is all scrunched up in the spot that bothers me the most, but he found what appears to be the root cause. One of the upper attachment points between it and the gluteus. Probably a small tear that hasn't healed because 1) I'm old; 2) I'm diabetic; 3) I've tried to run through it; and 4) I sit all day and that position seems to not be good for it. So I've got a few of those immensely boring exercises and stretches to do for 6 or more weeks that will hopefully strengthen the surrounding areas while it finishes healing. Also, standing more during the day. Trip to Idaho starting this afternoon with a truckload of odds and ends for the kids' new apartment. I used to make fun of parents that did things like this for their adult children. But here I am. Be there all week, then get back for just a few days before the trip to Boston. Busy April. Recent books: Anxious People by Fredrik Backman - Do yourself a favor and go read this. TODAY. Becoming by Michelle Obama - Fascinating, enlightening. Phantoms by Dean Koontz - Fun one. The Broken Kingdoms by NK Jemisin - Well done fantasy. One of the few African American fantasy authors out there. Book 2 of the series. The Kingdom of Gods by NK Jemisin - Book 3 of the series. The Intuitionist by Colson Whitehead - Mystery involving elevators. Didn't see that coming. All Systems Red by Martha Wells - Book 1 of a sci-fi multi volume series. Each book isn't long, but very entertaining. Artificial Condition by Martha Wells - Book 2. The House of Thunder by Dean Koontz - Gaslighting at it's finest. Three by Lars Kepler, my new favorite Scandinavian author - The Nightmare, The Fire Witness, and The Hypnotist. There are six more as soon as I can get to them.

    No recommendation here. But those toe/exercises I've found to actually be effective, so keep at it. PT always takes longer than seems reasonable.
