All Quiet on the Central California Homefront!!
Not much going on here except cold and rain. I'm supposed to be on a training schedule for running another marathon next year. Of course shopping and decorating take a front seat, so I'm a little behind. This morning, after turning off my sprinklers which were watering my already soaked front yard, I headed out the door for a four mile run in the rain. It wasn't bad actually since I run better in really cold weather. It was running against the wind that slowed me down considerably. Once done, you feel great ... for about 30 minutes ... then the achey breaky pain hits. To combat the after affects, I take a product called Recoverite by Hammer. It's specifically designed to reduce the inflammation of torn muscle fibers and promote healing and rebuilding. Sounds awful ... and it is. No one said running was pain free ... it's fun, but it hurts!!! And trust me, this stuff tastes like crap!!! LOL It does, however, work, so I hold my nose and chug it down, followed by breakfast. In about 4 hours, I should be able to stand up and walk again!!!!
