It’s been officially seven day since I’ve not been able to run. It’s getting really depressing and I’m starting to feel like I’m gaining weight; I know it’s all in my head but still. The the past seven days have been nice, warm with a cool breeze perfect California running weather.
I attempted to run today but stopped just as fast as I started. I could feel the pain in my lower back with each step warn me that I was not healed. I now know that it was a very stupid idea to have tried to keep running after I injured my back that Saturday at the estuary. Dang I hate getting old! I need to RUN!!!!!!!!
On a lighter note I did pick up two new pairs of running shoes last weekend. Couldn’t pass them up! Just in time too, my other pair has just over 200 miles on them so its time to start breaking in another pair before my trip to the Philippines.
I’m typing this on the new HP Stream Notebook computer I bought. I was able to buy it on line for $153.00 rather than the $199.99 regular price (plus no shipping or tax) but there was a catch, I could only get it in Pink, well officially it’s Magenta. My wife was laughing, as well as most who visit and find out its mine. What can I say except I’m cheap, so I’ve embraced my feminine side when it comes to computer style. I got it just for bogging and traversing the net. I wanted something that was small and light, something that I could toss in a backpack. This does the trick at less then 3 pounds it makes portability pretty easy and it has real good battery life too! I’m going to have to make a solar adapter for it though so I can charge it on when we are out in the wilderness and on one of the remote islands in the Philippines we plan to camp at.
How long must I wait to run! I’m totally aggravated and feeling antsy ughhhhh.
