Earlier in the week Mandy and I had a frank exchange over the amount of strain I have been putting on myself witht the runs. My body isn’t used to this much right now, as bad as that is for some one in my profession. She encouraged me to slow it down a bit and give my body more of a chance to heal itself. I told her I was tired of being this heavy and that I was fine. A discussion ensued. Nothing nasty or angry, but we didn’t agree. I should have listened in the first place. Last night I decided she was right and took the night off. My knee has not felt right and my calf has been noticeably swollen. It definitely feels better today. For now, I’m going to replace my runs on Wednesday with the stationary bike for the same amount of time just to ease the impact on my legs for one more day out of the week. Perhaps once I’ve lost another 10 or 20 pounds I’ll go back to the running. But for now, I’ll listen to my wife, who is getting a Master’s in just this type of thing……..
On another note, I don’t like it here. Not one bit.
