    good Ride on level streets 7.5 mi

    No elevation gains here. A bit sore after physical therapy. Saw a ginormous bright Xmas display complete with searchlights piercing the night sky. Think "Griswold"

      Cool, I did not take the "time" to put up lights this year. I envy those who did put them up early on the warm days.

      Nice break from the hills. Clark must not have plugged that last strand of lights in yet.

      Don't recall the moon but I'm sure it was there. I was wearing a light on my belt and was looking down at the lit ground in front of me.

  15. RUN
    good Quarry Lakes at dusk 5 mi 00:48 09:31 pace

    Very nice except for the swarms of gnats. I inhaled a few leading to coughing fits. PT evaluation today found that I had extremely tight hamstrings, no surprise there. Supposed to stretch twice ... read more

      Kaff..kaff... I read a research article about tight hamstrings some two years ago. It said that stretching does not help nor does icing. It said the solution was to strengthen the posture muscles that were putting the load onto the hamstrings. I suggest you try both doing what the PT suggested and also what the article suggested. Too bad your PT did not evaluate your muscular dynamics but trotted out this obsolete advice.

      The number of gnats I've swallowed... Here, they're no longer an issue now that the weather has stayed mostly cold! Nice run.

    Had a hard time finding my bike lock in the garage. Fortunately I remembered the lock combination.

  17. How may running shoes do you have? I've got 2 active pair that I alternate; 1 racing pair; 2 pair in box unused; one pair for bike riding; and 4 pair used shoes kept for walking and casual use.
