** RUMINATIONS

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Cortisone and I have a love hate relationship. I love when it works and hate when it doesn’t.  I love getting back to my running quickly but hate needing intervention. I love walking out of the doctor’s office pain free, but hate the needle. I love the short term relief but hate the long term effect.

It makes me wonder when do we need outside help like cortisone, Celebrex, knee brace, heel lifts, orthotics, beer, etc.
 

We need it when we have a race coming up but in my book, we need it when we have gone too many days without being able to do the sport we love!

Had my injection and will hopefully be ready to go on Sat.!

** RUNNIN' OFF AT THE MOUTH

The purpose of training is to stress the body, so when you rest it will grow stronger and more tolerant of the demands of distant running.

—David Costill, professor of exercise science at Ball State University

 

I leave my watch at home. Otherwise, it's a lost cause.

—Todd Williams, two-time U.S. cross-country champion (1991 and 1992), on what he must do to have an easy workout

 

 I find 140 miles per week is easy, but 160 is hard.

—Tom Fleming, in 1979, while training for the Boston Marathon
