  2. You know something's wrong when the doctor says you're entitled to complain. I wnet to the doctor today and she diagnosed my back pains as caused by scoliosis, with an extra twist in my p... read more

      Your dog walks still make your richer in spirit and health than so many in our age category. I wish you well, and congratulate you on your awesomeness! I hope your appointment brings answers.

      Hopefully you'll get some answers. Walking is a good alternative. Try to be patient :))

    weteringpark 5.31 mi 00:53 09:53 pace

    Park run with Akai. Wonderful running weather, cloudy, sweet and not too hot. But after 6 K my calf cramped again :-( I walked for some time, and started running after one K again. Not too painful ... read more

    180 degrees in the park where my runs usually start and end. I need nothing else

  8. RUN
    good weteringpark 5.4 mi 00:53 09:50 pace

    Much more wind than usual, but a lovely run with Akai again. Met a lot of people and stopped a lot of times, so it was more like interval. Nevertheless a refreshing run. Have a good week all.

      That's a good size run! I'm guessing the back was behaving?

      Try a physiatrist. At a rehab place. I wouldn't go to a chiropractor, but that's just me and a bunch of other people who don't think our backs should go through adjustment all the time. Anyway, a top spine center screwed me even more and a top rehab place put me back together.

      Thanks. I googled it, butgot only dictionaries and a clinic in Greece. I'm afraid this is not a much practised specialism here. The appointment will be with an orthomanual doctor.

  12. This line - at 25 secs - is not only about NY or about comedy, but also about my back. Couldn't help it came into my mind. Btw love this movie, the best and most underrated he ever made.

  13. RUN
    good park run + PT exercises 1.32 mi 00:14:51 11:15 pace

    dampy and warm, just after heavy rain.

  14. RUN
    good parkrun 1.89 mi 00:18 09:26 pace

    A good way to fight the pain in my back. Nothing new, not even the big fish who lay rotting at the bank of the weerwater. The stench was horrible. Happily Akai abhors decaying fish as much as I do ... read more

  15. RUN
    good run in the park + 30mins. PT ... 3.01 km 00:18 09:25 pace

    Just a nice run in the rain with Akai. Some exercises before, and some after. Doing the exercises in combination with (as w.u/c.d) running is much better than doing them at the end of the day.

  16. FIT
    alright PT's core exercises 00:30

    Phew... All kinds of exercises to strenghten the muscles in my lower back. They have to compensate for the artrosis. Don't think I'll ever like this. :-(

  17. RUN
    good weteringpark 4.36 mi 00:45 10:14 pace

    After PT - who gave some back strengthening exercises - I couldn't resist running, though it was not really planned. Well, Okay, sometimes you have to go beyond your plans. Imagine a slow ru... read more

  18. RUN
    good weteringpark 7.14 km 00:39 08:46 pace

    All alone this one; B didn't want to and I had walked Akai already. Sunny 24C and dry. Ran the weteringpark route - wonderful to be there again.No one in the forrest, just nice cool.

  19. RUN
    good sunday morning run 3.21 mi 00:32 09:57 pace

    With Akai. Lots of sniffing in the park, and a bitch on heat (is that the expression?), so I had to put Akai on leash to be able to run a litlle. Nice morning sun, nice route, nice run. Maybe later... read more

  20. RUN
    great weerwater! 6.5 km 00:35 08:40 pace

    Akai had to walk, and because it rained I took my running gear, so I could get wet. Unexpected we ran the old weerwater-route (see ) through rain and so... read more
