thanks for all the advice on beginning jogging… all of it is coming in handy.
i’m shocked that i’ve actually stuck with this endeavor as long as i have…i actually look forward to it over the course of my day. never thought THAT would happen either. i got myself some decent shoes and new, easy to spot activewear… nothing matches of course, but that just makes it easier for the cars to see me.
i did however sustain my first injury. about a mile into my tuesday run, the back of my right heel felt a little funny… not so funny that i needed to stop and check it out… more like a tee hee kind of funny. i got home to discover a new feeling on my foot. a warm, liquidy feeling. removal of my shoe revealed a large minnesota shaped bloodstain on my sock. yes folks, i rubbed my ankle raw.
i could still see the flecks of skin hanging on my turned inside out sock. groovy.
but i was out on wednesday… bandaged heavily of course.
