Another Injury
Monday, April 24, 2017      0 comments

Seems like I've been struggling the past few years with pervasive injuries. In 2015 it was my right calf. Last year I was lucky - I wasn't injured. This year - it's my right hamstring. I have NO idea how I injured it. I was in Chandler Ariz... Read more

After taking time off to allow my left ankle to heal from WHATEVER it was that was bothering it (after numerous trips to the orthopedist, x-rays, MRI and blood work - the doctor was unable to pinpoint the source of the problem) I've finally gott... Read more
Closing in on my primary goal

Update on my foot
Thursday, January 24, 2013      0 comments

So it turns out that the pain completely subsided before I even got to see the podiatrist (go figure!). No idea what the cause was - potentially an injury to the fat pad over the calcaneous bone of the left foot or a pulled tendon from when I d... Read more
Another Year - Another Injury

This year started off right - and wrong. I started at 173 lbs and set myself a goal for dropping down to 165 (and the eventual hope of reaching 154). I was going to the gym in the mornings - running three times a week in the afternoons (regard... Read more

Still Recovering
Sunday, April 15, 2012      0 comments

Well, Passover may be over but I'm still recovering from being sick the week before Passover and from injuring my left knee. I don't think it's a bad case of runner's knee but it does require some more time to recover. I walked the dog 3 1/2 m... Read more
