a running we will go

Ok, that was fucking awesome. Pardon the expletive, but it’s been a looong few months since I’ve been able to run like I want to, and tonight I ran like I wanted to. I’ve been doing nothing but six and ones for the past couple weeks, and was going to wait until the end of […]

graceful (or not)

Tonight I pumped up the tires and adjusted the brakes and derailer on my bike, found my shoes and helmet, filled my Camelbak, and threw all of it in the trunk and headed up to Gatineau Park for a little ride. While I was there, I learned some new tricks with math. Specifically: kev + […]

good night

Last night, for the first time in the better part of a year, I managed to sleep the whole night through. I’m thinking things are starting to come together, and my body’s starting to like me again. Over the past few weeks I’ve: cut my alcohol consumption down to one or two drinks on Fri […]

plantar fasciitis relief

I have high arches. My dress shoes, which I’ve had to wear for the last two months, do not. I’ve also been running again, which puts more strain on the same area. As a result, my right foot hurts. Specifically, my right foot has a mild case of plantar fasciitis. I’ve been stretching it out […]

6k, the hard way

For the past year I’ve had an excuse not to run. I tore the shit out of my soleus, followed it up with straining all my extensors and landing on my back for the better part of a month, and promptly severely sprained my ankle after getting off said back. During that time I’ve run […]

kicking and screaming

Tonight marks day two in my quest to get back into the running form I had right before I started ultimate last summer, which effectively killed my running long distances (I got hurt in the first game of the year, and was injury prone for the following 6 months). I’m planning on running the Prince […]


My calf still hurts – it shouldn’t take this long to heal, should it? oh wait – 6-8 weeks – riiight. Thankfully, it’s only a dull ache now, so I can plod through and it feels relatively decent after 10-15 minutes of work. I’m thinking there’s just a little bit of scar tissue there, still. […]

a sieve for a brain

Lately I’m forgetting more and more things short-term. I dunno if it’s just me being silly, or if something’s actually wrong. For some reason I had “3pm” stuck in my brain and written down today for my appt with Jenn. It wasn’t anywhere near 3pm, it was 10:30, and I missed it. Fuck. I’m more […]
