White Rock Centennial Half Marathon

Jerome was a good boy and ran his own race - as he should. Challenging course, hot at the end (people were starting to drop). BUT no pain other than the normal things you get when you run 13.1. So a success! Jerome had the family there and we me... Read more

...8 weeks after an agonizing Cowtown HM, its time for round two. Centennial HM in Dallas with JMERLAU. Now, Jerome will be waaay ahead (he should be, if not I will personally take him out into the lake and drown him), but I will plug this one o... Read more

First run since that grueling Cowtown experience - no problems, not even stiff. The rule of thumb is 1 day off for each mile raced. That was up on Sunday. Time to start an 8 week cycle culminating in the Centennial Half Marathon at Whiterock Lak... Read more

...I said "No, No, No." Oh ow, oh wow. Not an inch of me that doesn't hurt. And a lot. Having a hip (or a foot etc) really will throw your gait off and then everything else gets twanked. Kind of expected. For those of you embarking on longer ru... Read more

Well it's upon us, Sunday is race day. Start time is 0700 CST, forecast has dialed in on 61 and breezy winds out of the south. Dramatically different than the 23 degrees at start last year (I ran the 10K). Almost a little warm. 16 weeks of train... Read more

Doc says I was spot on the diagnosis...additional info was the ITB was focused more at the bursa sac that surrounds the head of that muscle group. So - short answer, bursitis. And instead of a short in the rear, a dose pac of steroids and the pr... Read more

ITB issues, are the gift that keeps on giving. Was good, iced and stretched all week. Was very aware of the hip...all was going well. Got everything in and things seemed pretty good. Went out for the long run today and about 20 or so minutes int... Read more

Well ITB testing day was today. Put up 12.4 miles and the ITB was a bit stiff, occasionally sore (stop stretch). The rest was just dog tired about 10.5 miles in so the last of it was run/walk. 66 degrees at start and likely low 70's at finish. C... Read more

....Ahh....Things are starting to warm up, and if the weather folks can be believed, its supposed to continue for the foreseeable future. Nice. Healing up ok, although I stepped wrong (due to hobbling around with this hip issue) and twisted my a... Read more

...and a hitch in the git along. Mild ice storm today, schools are closed, so no gym or outside running. And to top it off, looks like I strained the IT band on my right hip Sunday. Stretching, rest, ice, etc...and a very light week. Checked wit... Read more

I get asked from time to time by non-athletes why on Earth would you ever, ever put yourself through such things. This, boys & girls, is exactly why: pagingdrgupta.blogs.cnn.

Day three, no melt and now we have rolling blackouts (lots of power generation offline due to the cold, so it has to come from somewhere). Which means, no running outside (slip fall smash) and no running at the gym. Could you imagine being on a ... Read more

Well pooh. Not going to get my run in today - whole city is pretty much shut down in an ice storm. Would go to the gym, but the way these folks drive on this stuff - don't want to test out my insurance. And boy, what a day to have an accident. N... Read more
