worst run

Worst run of the year tonight. Hopefully worst ever. Although I can’t fairly call it a run. More like a speed walk. A slow speed walk. Went a total of one and a quarter miles. Half a mile to the track. One lap on the track. Half a mile home. I think it took me like half an hour. My lower back is jacked up. I thought that easy three mile bike ride to lunch would have loosened it up a bit but no. Electrical spikes shooting all over the place down there (Sciatica.) What’s my cure? Watch the World Track Champ’s and drink mint tea…

We all have those days. I hope you start feeling better.

Also have you ever heard of this race??

I think I am going to run it in a couple of weeks.

Yeah, that's a great run - really hard, but great. I ran it a couple years ago. I love that whole area - Mt Baldy.

Yoga. Acupuncture. the rx for sciatica.

Actually, I did try some light “upward facing dog” yesterday that seemed to help… I’m fresh out of needles, though…
