Thursday, October 15, 2009      7 comments

Ooookay. So, I hit goal last weekend and decided I needed pics. I have trouble seeing the changes in myself and have this idea of how I look that isn't very accurate. I feel bigger than I am and like I take up more space than I do. I still feel ... Read more

Sooooo... I've got another (mild) running owwie. Because, again, I pushed it too much. You'd think I'd have learned by now that that's a Bad Idea but I guess I have trouble tempering my enthusiasm. We were doing really well training for t... Read more

Had my PT meeting today. He says what I'm experiencing sounds like all soft tissue stuff and not serious injury. So that's good. He thinks the heel stuff could be due to either overcompensating for the injury OR just a change in my mechanics e... Read more

So, I went to Run n' Fun (yes Becky, that's really the name! Cute huh?) and a young guy was helping me with shoes. He was a bit disgusted when I said I only wanted to look at New Balance since the Asiacs he was getting would be better for my hee... Read more
