The Struggle for More Distance

Today was a very special day for me. I got to go out into Manhattan and meet a fellow runner and great blogger in her own right, Anne Brennan. For those of you who do not know her, (and I cannot imagine how) She does Ann’s Running Commentary, a podcast and has a great Blog….

Another Great Run Day!

Friday was a very beautiful day. The air was clear and crisp. It seemed like Fall. The birds were singing and chirping! It must be time for a run. I met so many runners in the Park Friday. They were a happy lot. They were smiling and stretching and even singing along with their running…

EPAT #4 and #5 – The Last Treatments

I just had my last treatment today and boy am I excited. My left knee feels like my right knee. Which is great. There is still a remaining little tinge of pain that flares up, now and then, but the Doctor assures me that I will recover nicely in time. I just found out about…

Known Issue – Withings Pulse

I came across this issue 11 days too late. I believe that there is a firmware update with the WIthings Pulse that may have cause this. I figured that out because after I reset my Pulse it updated the firmware. The giveaway that something was amiss was that the Withings Pulse did not sync. I…

EPAT #3 – Getting better I think!

It has taken me a couple of days to get this article out but time is my friend with this procedure. As the days are passing, I seem to be getting better, but I still have to ramp up again. I hope I do not do it too fast. My distance running difficult to do,…

Low fat Eggplant Parmesan

In my garden, lie a few unsuspecting eggplants. I was hungry this afternoon after only eating a couple of spoonfuls of humus, some low-fat yogurt and some multi-grain flat bread. I stalked my prey and cut them down in the prime of their lives. Just kidding. I did make some low-fat eggplant Parmesan without most…

EPAT #2

Today I went to the Doctor to continue with my EPAT treatment. My left knee is still hurting me. Ouchie! But it is getting much better than it was when I first started going to the doctor. Good thing, as this treatment is NOT cheap. But I like it better than 16 weeks of physical…

Pain Management

My external pain medication has arrived. I am not sure why I have it but I do. My knee hurts but I figured I would just get pain pills or Tylenol would be the drug of choice. This time it looks like this will be a topical solution. I am not sure how it works…

Bandaids

While running trough the Park the other morning, I did a clockwise  circle of the Park, as I do to alternate and preserve my joints.  The park roadway is slightly sloped inward and down in order to prevent flooding. Therefore on some days, I go clockwise and others I do the counterclockwise circle. But that…
