Still hurting

Posted under Injuries, Running - Aug 17th, 13 - Comments Off on Still hurting

My calf still hurts, so I’m still not running. I think I’m just about to the point where I can start walking again. My injuries are educational– they tell me that something is wrong. When I deal with one area of concern, something else pops up, which tells me I am out of alignment somewhere. […]

Calf Strain

Posted under Health, Injuries, Running, Streak - Jul 9th, 13 - Comments Off on Calf Strain

I made it to 20 days last Thursday. Thursday evening, my left calf felt twingey, so I decided to rest on Friday. That was probably a good idea. That evening, I decided to take my dogs on the same hilly walk around the block we always take, wearing Vibrams (very common for my walk.) About […]

Monday Semi-Rest

Posted under Injuries, May 2013 Workout Challenge, Yoga - May 6th, 13 - Comments Off on Monday Semi-Rest

I got my new FiveFinger KSOs today! REI’s outlet was having a too-good-to-be-true sale on discontinued colors from 2011, and miracle of miracles, they had my size! My feet are 8.5 (39), which I believe is literally the most common shoe size for women, so I never get to buy shoes on clearance. I also […]

Mostly Rest Day

Posted under Heart Rate, Injuries, May 2013 Workout Challenge, Yoga - May 3rd, 13 - Comments Off on Mostly Rest Day

I had to take another yoga rest day. My wrists are still sore. Tomorrow is the official rest day, so hopefully by Sunday, my wrists will be up to the series again. Tomorrow is an easy 2-mile run, so I think I’ll try the 140 heart rate. For the May workout challenge, I did: 30 […]

Insert cool title here

I haven’t felt much like posting, but I have been working out, somewhat. Last week I hurt my neck. I’m also still struggling with derby. The frustrating thing about being in a messed up situation is that if you talk about it, you’re a gossip. If you don’t talk about it, the pressure builds up […]

I’m so frustrated. Last week, I had two good runs.  One was a hilly run of about half an hour.  The other was on a track– I wanted to see whether I could run a mile without stopping and how long it would take me.  (Yes, 11 minutes.)  Then, my hip started to hurt.  My […]

Back from the Pool

Posted under Injuries, Workouts 2006 - Mar 5th, 06 - Comments Off on Back from the Pool

I’m back from the pool.  Spent about 45 minutes treading water– I can’t find my goggles.  I’ve ordered prescription goggles, though.  They’ll be here in about a week or so.  I was kind of disappointed.  I would have worn my flowered swim cap if I knew I wasn’t going to be doing laps.  After we […]

My Knee

Posted under 2006, Health, Injuries - Mar 1st, 06 - Comments Off on My Knee

I’m still having trouble with my right knee.  I went and picked up some arch supports and a knee strap.  I’m also working on a short DITY stretching and weights routine to loosen up that hip and strengthen the muscles around the knee.  I just can’t bear to go to a doctor.  My experience has […]
