Morning Gang<br><br>
Sans (good to see you'll be on the trail next week) I like your 22/7 the best, I want a slice. Larry, hope you shake off that virus, glad JJJ didn't explode yesterday, Peter, nice easy day ready for tomorrow. Hope Dale has recovered more from Thurs run.<br><br>
I had a nice gentle 3 miler after yesterday's hilly trail. MrsRoy and the woody boy out with me, great way to start the day <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">. Hope you all have a great day.<br><br>

Good morning, masters.<br><br>
After yesterday's run, I had hints of ITB irritation, and it got worse throughout the day. This morning I couldn't run without pain. So I'm looking at more time off. I have dealt with the ITBS monster before, and figured out how to keep it at bay. Unfortunately I have slacked off the stretching, foam rolling, and strengthening exercises while my mileage has been down, thinking I was okay. Ah well, live and learn.<br><br>
Good running to those who can, speedy healing to those who can't.

Yesterday was a hip-trauma day. Woke up with my LEFT side in spasm (it's the right leg and side that's been ailing all these weeks), and even after my late-morning massage I was still limping and in pain. Finally took two advil in the early evening, did some careful stretching, then with the additional dosage of two glasses of wine with dinner, I went to bed relatively painfree. This morning I work up tentatively, not even moving much in bed at first to discern if there were any lingering twinges. There weren't. My pelvis feels relatively level, and my hamstrings can lengthen nicely when I forward bend.<br><br>
So... I'm lacing up my Asics as I type. The sun is happily drying up the damp chill in the air and on the ground, so I'm off to the park. A no-agenda run as I start from scratch again to build up my miles. Good runs to all!

Hey everyone...sorry to hear about the injuries.<br><br>
The right shin still plagues me......so I can relate...<br><br>
This past weeks runs have all been very sluggish...<br><br>
But today...out at 6:30 AM...a very COLD 52 degrees....Pfitz Progressive run..as best I could do against a strong north wind..<br><br>
20 miles...first 10 about 9:30, next 8 about 8:40, mile 19 low 8's, final mile low 7's....not a bad run today..<br><br>
Good running all...

Good morning. I too have a small injury - a real bad spasm on my neck and right shoulder area, but it's not across the top of the shoulder, it's along the edge of the bone. A real knot in it, and it's even painful all the way down my right arm. Advil doesn't help at all. I went to the chiropractor yesterday and today, and hopefully it'll be fine soon. Right now, though, it really hurts badly.<br><br>
This morning I walked 1/2 mile and then took a 1 hour yoga class. At least my head feels better now; mentally I can face the shoulder/neck pain.<br><br>
Tomorrow is my 2mile race. Wish me luck!<br><br>

In keeping with the injury theme of the day, I went to the dr. a few days back and he tells me I <b>probably</b> have a stress fracture. He wants me to get an x-ray and then I go back to see him at the end of the month.<br>
In the meantime, I'm wearing this boot in lieu of a walking cast. At least I can take it off to sleep, shower, and drive. The "boot" goes up to my knee almost and has some metal supports along the side, relieving most of my weight from my foot. It's attached with about eleventyseven velcro straps.<br><br>
I'll have a better idea of what the problem is at the end of the month. The dr. is saying I may be wearing this boot thing for 6-8 weeks <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> . Lesson learned, listen to what the body is saying.<br><br>
I don't really understand the <b>probable</b> stress fracture diagnosis, as the pain associated with this is maybe 2-3 on my scale of 10, with 10 being a dislocated kneecap and 8-9 being a kidney stone. <img alt="confused.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/confused.gif"> I have other aches and pains (hip, hamstring) that I just deal with and run through. They never get any worse.<br><br>
I was able to temporarly rehire one of my old employees on a part time basis, since doing field work is out of the question for now. He was able to find another job and is going to help out on weekends. So evidently, kindness is it's own reward, or something like that.<br><br>
Good running to all

<span style="font-family:Arial;">Dang, millbot. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">Sorry about the ITB; I can relate to that one. Speedy healing! Healing vibes also to Riley and Johnny.</span><br><span style="font-family:Arial;">Today I set out to do a medium length MP run, but it ended up faster - 12 miles at 8:51, which is 29 s/m faster than old MP. I felt so good today, probably from yesterday’s complete rest and last night’s wonderful butterfly hugs in chat. Thank you mariposai! I thought about you during my run and hope you enjoy your long run today.</span>

I just know wa5yom is going to follow up that line to Johnny with......."don't press there." Hope everybody heals up nicely here in med central.<br><br>
The plan is to try and run a few miles this afternoon IF the rains let up enough that I won't drown. It is currently coming down in sheets. I got in a bit of running this morning while out marking a course for the marathon training group. Find a parking spot out of the way, run to a corner, draw some quick directional arrows, and race back to the car. Luckily the rain held off until just about the time the last "hopalong" arrived back at base camp. Perfect timing.<br><br>
GO MUNCH!!<br><br>
Tomwhite........it's just a "suggestion".....but if I had friends/relatives getting married in Chattanooga, I'd try to persuade them to get married at Ocoee and immediately whitewater down the river. Good simulation of what's ahead for them.

Johnny - oh man! that's a bummer.. so, they're just saying stress fracture, are you getting any tests for that? Glad to hear you're following doctors orders & that your employee is working for you on the weekends.<br><br>

Hi all,<br>
A little bike ride for me this morning. I got to have lunch with The Tamster yesterday! Except all our gossiping was cut short because I had to get back to a meeting. <span style="font-size:xx-small;">(Tammy, should I tell them what we talked about?)</span><br><br><b>oldschool</b>, my PF was aggravated by trail running, too. Pity. I like trail running best. Maybe if I just ease back into it...<br><br>
(((Johnny's fracture))) <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> Well, it is good to have a diagnosis finally.

Wow, there's a lot of walking wounded here today. My sympathies go to Mill, Susan, OM, Johnny.<br><br>
Nice runs there Tim, FFinn! Munch, great w/o!<br><br>
I had some PF-like pain in my right foot a couple of days ago, so yesterday's scheduled day off was a welcomed rest. I used nsaids and ice for 2 nights and that seems to have done the trick. (Ice - a great invention!) I was able to run 18 miles today w/o any pain. <img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"> 2:36:25, 8:41 pace overall. I'm back on ice now as I type this, just to be safe. JJJ we'll keep the porch light on in case you're late getting out of the woods!<br><br>
tfn,<br>

Not really, not anymore than when I don't press on it. The "pain" is more like a dull ache, and it moves around,.... top of foot, outside of ankle, front of shin. Occasionally it also throbs and/or tingles.<br><br>
A lot of my problem now is, this happened in early Dec. and I continued to run (slower, less milage) off and on until late Jan. Not to mention walking, weight training, elliptical, yoga, etc., until the end of Feb. So I've certainly aggrevated the problem. Starting March 1, I've stopped all exercising and I've been wearing the boot for the last 3 days.

Sorry to hear about the injuries and other assorted maladies. Hope all get well and back out running asap.<br><br>
I've run a lot of miles (relatively) lately, with 7 on Monday and 6 on both Thursday and Friday; so instead of running the scheduled 4-5 today, I put a new tube and tire on the back of my bike, added a new chain ( "a new chain every 1,000 miles", I read not too long ago), and took the old Schwinn out for a 16 miler. I haven't ridden at all since commuting ended last fall.<br><br>
On the subject of bike commuting, I'm starting back up again Monday morning. I filled the gas tank on my car this morning and I'm hoping it'll last all spring and summer. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Have a great weekend everyone,<br><br>

Healing vibes to all who need it.....<br><br>
I don't usually run on Saturdays but life is nuts and I have to rearrange my run schedule this week. So....12 nice and easy miles today. Needed to get out and clear my head. 17 year old DS1 is causing some trouble....really bad progress note. He is a junior and doesn't seem to get how important everything he does, is right now. Time to crack the whip....<br><br>
Have a nice rest of the day.

Aw geez, sorry to hear about all the injuries. Take care, be smart, and get well quickly.<br><br>
Nice runs, Tim and FF. Hope you're having a ball out there, J^3.<br><br>
45F and sunny today. There was a new sound in the air today, birdsong. In Michigan in late winter, this all adds up to shorts weather. I stopped by the running store, bought a new pair of shoes from StefaninAA of Boomer 4x400m relay fame, and headed out to break them in on a 15 miler.<br><br>
Two miles into the run, I saw a pair of runners approaching, a man and a woman, looking smooth and fast. Oh, no wonder, it turned out to be Monica, our local former Olympic 3000m runner, and her husband. She's pushing 50 but still turns 5k in the low 17s.<br><br>
Inspired by that sight, the sproink overflowed and I had my best run of this young season, 15 miles at 7:28 pace. More like a MP effort, but it felt good. Mile 12 clocked in at 6:54, nice. I'm very happy with where I am in training right now. No races on tap till early May, but I'm already getting excited about them.<br><br>
Everyone enjoy the rest of the weekend, and good luck to tomorrow's racers.
