RR# 15 – Fred D’elia Ridgewood Run 5K

This was my exactly my fourth run in the month of May.  Count ‘em – four.  When I took myself out of the Superhero Half Marathon because of an injury, my thoughts immediately turned to the problem of my streak.  The half was on May 18th, and because of the injury that weekend was out.  […]

The Streak…

… is at 15 months.  Ridgewood Run 5K this morning, and given that this was my 4th run in a month I’m pretty pleased with how it went.  The race report is coming later in the week (I want to get pictures) … but the preview is 32 minutes, 59 seconds.  I don’t like being […]

A Fragile Pattern

I think the detox worked, in a fashion. The running, it is back on.  I switched back to a new pair of Beasts to completely rule out shoes as the cause of my injury, and so far there is no pain.  I’m not even as far off of my cardiovascular peak as I expected to […]

Detox, Day 6 – In Defense of Food

The following is discussion of Day 6 of my 10-day 6 day detox.  To begin with Day 1, click here. The detox ended at 1pm on Saturday, which was day 6.  The detox is dead. Long live the detox.

The following is discussion of Day 4 of my 10-day detox.  To begin with Day 1, click here. Finally we get to a day that doesn’t really suck.  If Days 1 and 2 were all about caffeine withdrawal, and Day 3 was all about gastrointestinal integrity, then Day 4 was all about settling in. Probably the […]

Detox, Day 3

The following is discussion of Day 3 of my 10-day detox.  To begin with Day 1, click here. Day 3 sucked, but not as badly as day two. I will now offer a warning – there is going to be discussion of pooping below.  It won’t be too graphic or anything, but we’re going to talk […]

Detox, Day 2

The following is discussion of Day 2 of my 10-day detox.  To begin with Day 1, click here. The theory of a detox, as given to me by my guy, goes like this: There are toxins everywhere.  They are in the air we breathe and in the food we eat.  They are in the casings […]

Detox, Day 1

So, as mentioned several times, I went to see a chiropractor / sports injury guy for the issue in my foot.  He’s been helpful, and I expect to be running again by the end of the week. A pretty good outcome, though I think this was as much shoe related as anything. My guy is […]
