sounds awful Dave. I hope this goes away fairly quickly.
And I hope this isn't a stress fx, Opie - maybe just hurting from overuse? Good cross training though!
Going to the track tonight for intervals. David gave me a workout.
1/2 mi w/u
800m (sub 4:00)
2:00 min recovery
200m walk and 200m "shag"
then 5x400 with 1:00 recovery. and he wants my paces in the 1:40-1:49 range.
1/2 mi. c/d . . . or until my heart rate is recovered. I told him I hope my heart wasn't dead by the end of this.
I never should have asked him for suggestions on an interval workout.
I've been away as well, but with no "good" excuse-- just lazy about posting.
Monday 3 miles; Tuesday 3 miles; Today 3 miles. One of these days i'm gonna really let loose and do 4 miles.
today is my wedding anniversary-- 31 years to the same man! and he's still the one!
ETA: oh, and had my annual physical on Monday, my thyroid meds were adjusted again-- bumped up to 125mcg. hoping it helps alleviate the constant fatigue. I want my mojo back!
goodness is its own reward; for more tangible outcomes, you need to try badness.

Quick post as the family awaits attention.
My in-laws finally were able to leave (car problems plagued them), and hopefully they will make it home with no more.
Stopped to see my mom on the way home from work. They have definitively decided she has ALS (Lou Gehrig's) and she and her husband are preparing for the worst of it. He will try to keep her at home as long as he can, but it will be a rough ride. So sad, she's not that old (76) to be going down this fast. The months ahead will not be easy. We will do what we can, though, to ease the burden. Sorry, not meaning to be a downer.
6.25 miles for me this morning in 73 degrees.
Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."
