Back in July I purchased a new car and debated on whether or not to add any bumper stickers to the rear bumper. Unlike my previous auto, the rear bumper is a deep, dark grey and I felt the standard white 26.2 sticker with black lettering was not appropriate.
On the one hand, I have run 26 marathons and certainly deserve to show my pride in my accomplishment.
On the other hand, I have essentially run my last marathon, therefore displaying a sticker for a distance I no longer run may be inappropriate.
What say the blogosphere? Display or no display?
Back in the Saddle (sort of)
According to my doctor, today I can start doing things. Things such as foam rolling. Running, unfortunately, is not on the list. Just as well, the knee is definitely not up to it and I suspect, neither is my IT Band.
For the last week it’s been pretty much ice, ice baby; trying to get the swelling down, which has been primarily around the area of the IT Band.
I planned on taking a break through the end of January and maybe into February. But for me, a break means random short runs every now and again based on my whims. That said, instead it means no runs and don’t bother putting on the running shorts, because it’s not going to happen.
Sadly, we are entering that short window of perfect Houston running weather. 40’s in the morning with some light wind or low 50’s over the lunch hour, under sunny skies and a nice breeze. Sigh.
But, recovery takes time and rushing it will do nothing but leave me more prone to another injury. No thanks.
