    I would think flip flops would kind of defeat the purpose - you have to extend your big toes to keep them on, which unless you have phenomenal control of your foot muscles, is going to flatten the...

    Welp, I don't know if you can really classify all those things together.

    Complaining about the pace of a group run? Especially when the pace was what was agreed on at the start? That's just rude....

    Emily, you know what, you're doing plenty. Any time someone tells me they "should" take up running, I tell them, if that's how you feel about it, no you shouldn't! It's not like there aren't dozens...

    So I've been running a little, not much. Partly because it's amazing how much fitness I lost in three weeks. :mad: Partly because my adductors are screaming from the PT exercises, which I really...

    So I got out for three today. After all this time my legs were obviously good for more, but my respiratory infection is still a little bit precarious, and I didn't want to push it, but I was jonesing...

    Yep. I've done some hiking around Bear Mountain. That's the kind of trail it's okay to race on when it's wet and you know you won't tear up the mud. ;)

    Take care of yourself and recover! Hopefully...

    We actually left for Boston before the hot weather hit at home, hopefully the rain will be done by the time we get back, and it should be more spring-like. With the rain and then drier weather, it...

    First of all, nothing catastrophic with the injuries. I've mostly been offline because of the move back north. Always super stressful and disorienting to me, never mind just the physical...
