Counting Down – One week to go….

It’s getting close to the last weeks of training and I’m feeling bloated and out of shape (mentally). I am eating as normal so I’m not worried about my weight, but I need to get out and finish up my taper. I did what I could to motivate myself and I can tell that I…

TENS machine

  You know you are an old runner when your insurance approves an electronic stimulation machine for your use.

Back in the Saddle

I ran today finally. It took all of my energy to get out and run. A body at rest stays at rest. I felt so great out there. I was not as fast as I have been but I was strong and the run was easy. What a thrill and what a relief to be…
