Sparking the Creativity, Love, and Playfulness of the Human Spirit

Short run

2 miles in 20 minutes

I did a short run today because I’m still having that darn discomfort with my lower back. Is it my shoes? My stride? My stretching? My mattress? Do I just need to give it time to heal? If so, how much time? Is it good to run a little while it’s healing?

So I’m confused. I’m sure I still love to run, I’m just not sure how my body is going to take it. I do know that getting massages for my legs is a good thing; my co-worker Pam, who’s a massage therapist, is giving me a sports massage every couple of days and I know that is beneficial. It’s just everything else that I’m having trouble figuring out.

I will say, though, that because the “cold” front came through, it was a MUCH nicer run than it has been recently. The low 90’s rocks!

    Hey there Bob, perhaps you need to work on your VW Camper oil change technique. I’m sure John Muir wrote a chapter on “How to Keep Your VW Alive and your Back in Shape at the Same Time.”

    Ciao from an old friend.

    • Randy,

        Good to connect! “YA DONE GOOD”… I remember that being one of your fun phrases, it was from a TV detective show, wasn’t it? Lorraine found you on Facebook, she/we will make more in-depth contact there, share some pictures of family, talk some more. PS. We crossed the continent a few times in that ’66 VW bus, in ’85 sold it to a surfer dude in Ventura California who was going to do a full restoration.

        Randy
