Mixed news from my visit to the Sports Doc on Saturday. The IT Band is still hot, ergo, unhappy. This means my non-running streak continues; currently sitting at 28 days and counting. On the other hand, I did get the go ahead to try rowing and cycling.
Rowing it is! Especially since Lady J and I recently acquired a rowing machine.
Stationary bicycles and treadmills are not for me. I am sure this is 100% psychological. However, a rowing machine I have no issue with. Just turn on the TV – don’t even need sound – and off I go.
An introductory 25 minute session this morning was just what the body needed and the knee and IT Band are doing fine.
You Can Run For Beer
Avery Brewing in Boulder, CO is helping you earn your beer. Every Sunday, they host a fun run from the brewery and back, rewarding those who complete a 3.5 or 5.5 mile loop with a free pint.
Hmmm, seriously thinking of moving to Boulder…
Fort Bend Brewing Open for Business
The Houston area’s latest brewery, Fort Bend Brewing, opened its doors Saturday for their first tour. The tour was a sell out and patrons were not disappointed.
Fort Bend Brewing is currently offering four beers, my favorites being the Texas Backyard Blonde and the Texas Thunder Stout. I was a bit disappointed in the Texas Lightning IPA, but the owner, Ty, said they are still working on it.
The brewery is not really conducive to a traditional tour, where one hangs out and chills, due to its size. But it is a great place to taste the brewery’s beers and chat with the owner and brew master. Their beers are slowly making inroads at Houston area pubs, bars and restaurants and I certainly hope Houston area establishments continue to provide local selections for their constituents.
