Today like the last week and a half I was up with my alarm clock yet late getting out of the house. I think I need to set my alarm clock earlier if I’m going to take an hour and a half to get out the door. On top of starting late I had to double back to a few customers for various reasons so I didn’t get home till 5pm which is unusual for a Wednesday. I relaxed for 45 minutes and then went out for my run.
I had every intention of running slow to make sure I don’t reinjure my foot but I was still too fast. Fortunately my foot survived another run injury free. I did my usual 4 miles and counting 4 minutes of walking finished in 43:20 for a 10:50min/mile. If you take out the walking it would have been a sub 10min/avg which is faster than I want this week.
On the way home there’s a corner where I turn that has a hydro pole right beside the sidewalk. Today when I turned the corner I leaned a little too much into the turn and I heard a big rip and felt a tug on my left shoulder! I guess there’s a nail or pice of wood sticking out that I never noticed before?! It was a close call as I couldn’t have missed my shoulder hitting it by more than 1/4″. Wouldn’t have been fun explaining that injury….so John how did you hurt your shoulder? Huh, well,huh I ran into a pole 😉
Not sure If I’ll be around to post tomorrow night. First if it doesn’t rain I’m going golfing again and then I have an appointment to get my gait checked at 5pm in the city. Then I’m hopefully going to take that info to the Running Room and buy a new pair of shoes. Then I’m going to go next door to Popeye’s Supplement’s to replenish my protein powder supplies. I think I have enough left for one smoothie…not good. And then finally I have to go deal cards at poker.
So I’ll probably be back Friday night. Have a good day tomorrow everyone!
