Beer Before Liquor
So I screwed my knee up a little. This morning when I ran, I stopped way short because the ongoing twinge in my knee was bothersome enough that I was doing some kinda limp-run whenever I pushed off with my right foot. It's probably just a minor case of runner's knee, so I have to scale back my runs a lot and take it easy the next couple weeks, which is all frustrating since I'd just gotten to a comfortable plateau and I'd soon have some other options open up for me like working on speed or distance, and now I'm going to have to work back up to this same level. Still, I'm trying to stay objective and not let the mental energies leak too much into the future or the past.
When I aborted the run, I stopped and sat on one of the concrete beaches and just watched the sun come up. There was a man fishing near me and it was all pretty wonderful, considering.
Anyway, I think I'm going to pick up a pair of Vibram Fivefingers, because I've been secretly curious for a while, I've got the money, and I have to scale my runs back anyway.
Sorry to all the people that just bored the shit out of. I have something else today, but I'm going to give it its own post.
EDIT: I totally forgot to link to this awesome Radical Boy fan art that Phil Redmon drew. Phil is the tops -- a good friend and a continuous source of inspiration for me -- and what's more, today is his birthday.
