    Tried an easy jog, but the outside knee pain came back about 1.5 miles into the run. Another couple of days off!

    alright Short run. 4.82 mi 00:37 07:43 pace

    My IT Band and the outside of my left knee still had some pain. It started last Thursday with just being sore. It gave me some trouble on Saturday's big trail run. So I took three days off and... read more

    Finally ran a trail I've always wanted to run...county rd. to Banded Peaks, Price Lakes, and up the Navajo trail! Long, steep, rocky, snowy, icy, but gorgeous! Max elevation - 9,892ft! The ou... read more

  4. Has anyone ever experimented with very low doses of creatine to help recovery? I saw an article about it in Men's Fitness, but was wondering if it can be used safely - no cramping, fluid reten... read more

      I've been taking the recommended dosage, daily, for 14 straight weeks. I don't think it helps my running (don't think it hinders it, either), but I have a tendency to lose a lot of upper body strength when I run a lot. The creatine seems to help me retain my strength (I only do bodyweight exercises along with some dumbbell work.) Every once in a great while I get muscle cramps from it, but it's rare.

      In regards to it helping recovery, I don't think it really does in my case (but, again, that's not my reason for taking it.)

      Thanks for the reply, Colin. What's the recommended dosage?

      5g (one teaspoon) per day is what my container says. I just mix it with about 8 oz of water.

      That was a long run... rest up, drink water, take Emergen-C or Cold Eeze or something, hot tea with honey... you can still stave it off I hope!

      Dang, you have been logging some serious miles lately. It has been nice to run in a tee but I would trade that for running in your part of the country. Nice Job. You going to hit an ultra next year?

      Hey Tim! Thanks, yeah, there's lots of mountain trails, steep highways, and flats too! Being at elevation has helped me do more with less. I'll be moving back to Oregon Jan. 4th because my internship is up here. But, I'm really thinking about doing the TransRockies Race. You should do it too! It's a 5 day race - some do the first 3 days solo, and then have a partner for the last 2. But a lot have partner the all 5!

      If I was you I would hit a race shortly after getting back to take advantage of all that legal blood doping you've been doing. That transrockies race looks awesome.

      Susan, I don't have any races lines up just yet...I'm working out the details. I'm tinkering on the thought of doing the Trans-Rockies Run. So far,the last 5 months running at 7,500-8,000ft has made me appreciate longer more sustained training! We'll see!

      I was unable to run for most of February-July. I had a brain hemorrhage end of January. It was awful. Running is how I find my zen and I had to deal with the stress in other ways. Frankly, those ways fell WAY short. I'm back at it now and I am so thankful!

      You're too nice! Ever since I made the transition from Road Cycling Racing to Running, it's been a steady progression! Ever since moving to elevation (7,600ft) from Portland, I've had to adapt to many changes in diet, rhythm, and consistency. I just love to run! Everything is relative, though! I just like seeing the potential and tapping into it. You're doing awesome yourself! Keep up the good work! As long as being physically active is a priority, we'll all be in good shape! Cheers to a relaxing night!
