The head idiot at iRunFar has once again sprained his ankle. Doh! It’s nothing major … it’s happened before and it’ll happen again. However, with fine spring weather here and some pacing fun coming up soon, we’ve got our crack staff thinking about how to rehab the ankle ASAP. Sure there’s the RICE (Rest. Ice. […]

Last night I went for a 5 miler jaunt and it almost felt like I was running. I was still slow and I probably sucked more air than a Dyson. However, my legs were a bit less heavy, the trailer I’m towing now weighs 1 ton instead of 20 tons, and my legs didn’t feel […]

Happy 2008 everyone! In consideration of my previously discussed endocrine fatigue, I took a brief hiatus from running… and as tends to be the case, I also took two full weeks off with the exception of two easy 5 mile runs while I was home in New Jersey around xmas.

I’m super crazed at work, but I wanted to share that I’ve run three days in a row! So far, no pain in the knee in any of the runs. I have had some funny sensations in the injured area, but definitely not pain. If anything it’s closest to numbness. Based on personal experience, I’m […]

Ok, I took yesterday off completely from running and intend to do the same today. If I have as little pain today as I had yesterday, I will try running again tomorrow. This knee thing is really frustrating me. The pain’s not so bad that I can’t run through the it, but it seems that […]

At this point, my knee is trouncing my rib in terms of annoyingness. Today I can breathe deeply without pain. That is good. Unfortunately, yesterday my knee was quite bothersome for the first mile of my run (at which point I decided to turn a 20 mile run into a 5 miler) and was another […]
