@George,
Did another 3 yesterday. Had to slow to a walk several times when I started
getting knee pain. Still felt really tired by the end.

Today my legs are sore, but at least it is a recovery day.

@George,

hate when a run gets interrupted like that.

do you wear a knee brace?
i've been thinking about getting one for each wonky knee...

@Region Philbis,
No, I tried wearing one of those "sleeve" things, but it drove me nuts.

I hope to get in the kayak tomorrow, probably Upper Mystic Lake.

I went for 6.2 miles (10 kilometers) Saturday. The plan was to run the first
3.1 miles without stopping, then do the rest in half-mile intervals of jog and
walk. As it turned out, I had to stop a couple of times for knee twinges the
first 3.1. The second 3.1 went as planned.

I felt like hell by the end, but was surprised to fund myself within a minute
of my target time for the distance (73 minutes). Now I am quite hopeful
that I can hit my "age number" once again this year.

@tsarstepan,
Thanks, Tsar.

Oddly enough, I've never had side stitches. Just about every other kind of
pain, but not that kind.

@George,
I would often get afflicted with them (when I restart running again and am pretty out of shape).

@Region Philbis,
Yeah, I know. Weird.

On the other hand, used to have to spend time windmilling my arms
before a run or my shoulder would start to ache after a mile or so.

I once cleared a lot of room for myself in the finish line chutes
(remember those?) of a 10K with a spectacular case of the dry heaves.

On a winter jog through the woods near Horn Pond, I slipped on black ice
and went down so fast I was on my back on the ground before I realized I
was falling. By reflex, my arms reached out to slap the ground to break
my fall. I'm sure that saved my noggin, but it hurt my elbow and I had to
finish the run with my arms cradled to my chest.

I ran a distance race on a hot summer day. I was wearing a light-colored
cotton tee. At the end of the race I saw two pink lines down the front of
the shirt. The cotton tee had gotten soaked with my sweat and rubbed
my nipples so raw that they bled.


But no, no side stitches.

Why run when you can certainly helicopter yourself to where you need to go? Shocked

Ran in the Beverly (MA) Reindeer Run today with my friend Bill. The course
was relatively flat, with a nice stretch of ocean view. Sunny and not
terribly cold.

When I picked Rhys up after work, he asked me how the race went.

"I came in third in my age group" I said. "Guess how many were in my age
group."

"Three?" he guessed.

"Yep."

"So you came in last."

Nothing like your kids for keeping it real.

@Region Philbis,
Two Tuesdays ago? My first time back at the gym (since about 14 or 15 months).

My eyeglasses fell of the treadmill shelf (as I can't stand wearing them while sweating profusely and exercising) and I was a tad too quick to chase after them ... and not wait long enough for the treadmill to come to a much slower pace or a full stop. Results could have been worse. Very minor sprained left wrist.

And I will go back to keeping my glasses in a tiny tote bag I use to carry a couple of gym related things while at the gym.
