    I know what you mean; the equivalent for your seabus incident was when I had to speed up to drop my cup in the garbage at one of the water stations at my Half. That speed-up became a run without thinking, and it took me probably 50 meters or so for the thought "I shouldn't be doing this" to make it through my thick skull.

    At this point, I've given it plenty of time, so the only thing I can really do is give it a shot, but to watch it closely after the fact. In addition, I'll have been off running for ten weeks, so I'm thinking that the four weeks of 3 Easy runs a week might be a good idea. Of course, Easy=5:43 minute/km, which to many makes me sound insane...

    As for spinning, I've actually never had the desire for any classes; I'm a loner by nature, and when I started out I had some pretty severe self image issues so did all my exercise in private - I didn't even want my wife around. Then I eventually started walking, but at lunchtime to and from Subway from work, then I started running, which tends to be pretty solitary. There are a couple people at work who I would run with occasionally, but my pace or distances tended to be somewhat intimidating. My wife, who also runs, will often run with others, but her pace and mine are just too incompatible for us to run together.

    I have, however, been getting out on the bike, and will probably keep doing so. The weather today was just too nice not to do it!

    Thanks for leaving the tip about the egg whites on my blog. If they are on sale, I'll get those, but 6 out of 7 of my children also like to eat just the whites, so it's actually more economical for me just to buy the eggs and separate them. Oh well! He'll just have to keep teasing me! I appreciate your thought!

    Have a "Spark"-filled weekend!!!

    Cool where do you live? Van? Bby? Coq? Other area? I am in Burnaby! If you are close you should check out GoodLife wow what an amazing gym with awesome classes! I go there! So fun! I am not an avid runner so I may end up walking too :)

    Thanks for your comment on my injury, and sorry to hear that you'll be off running for so long. I'm already going a bit stir crazy, and it's not even been a week! A friend of mine has offered me use of one of his spare bikes for a while, and I may just take him up on it.

    At this point i'm still waiting to review the bone scan results with the doc, but it probably doesn't matter too much 'cause I wouldn't have been doing anything different this week: rest, elevating it, icing it, and (after consulting my doctor and my wife's uncle Jack) NSAID's. I'm not going to push it, but at the same time I'll be talking both to the doctors and to the Physio guys about run/walking the Half. Jack figures I should be able to if I had an Air Cast. My wife's hoping that means we would be able to truly run it together for once, because otherwise I would be finishing half an hour before her :-)
