      I'm totally feeling for you, Kristin; I know this is really tough. I wish I could help. You are one tough (and in shape!) athlete, and have been for years. Don't despair, this is a short break in the grand scheme of things. You'll get there, friend, chin up! :0)

    Didn't even break a sweat, but for once I was wise and listened to my body. It told me to ease up since the glutes started to tingle and warn me off more strenuous work. Discouraging. I jus... read more

      OH no! I bet Saturday's run got you in trouble. Take care and get better soon. I'm sure you'll be all over those rehab exercises.

      Yes, I was very naughty to run the 8 last Saturday. Put me back almost 5 days and could hardly rattle my bones out of bed the next morning. No regrets, though! I'm all taped up and sore from the PT, but yes, I am all over those rehab moves. Anxious to get better all the way!

      We missed you, Em! Thought of you and mentioned you more than once as we trotted along. Knowing rifle season was still open we figured you'd be kinda stuck at home. Next time?

      Let's just see how it goes. The 8-mile route has a place to turn around to make it 4 miles and another to make it 5 miles, an option to head home for a total of 6 miles, or the cut off loop for the full 8. The thing I'm most concerned about (and the thing he mentioned specifically today) is the hill running. There are two significant hills (steep, but not terribly long). No way I'm going to miss this opportunity to run with y'all!
