Now I pull my pork on occasion.....I think it might be the testosterone.....But I am referring to cooking in this instance. I put a nice 3lb. pork tenderloin in the slow cooker with cider vinegar, ketchup, brown sugar, and a shitload of spices before I left for the gym. After beating myself up at the gym, I stopped off at Peppers to get a bag of chopped up cabbage and carrots, and a jar of coleslaw sauce. Stopped off to visit sister sue, and then came home and turned up the cooker. The smell is already getting to me....
Yesterday I was able to run two one and a half mile intervals with a minute walk in between. Three miles is doable and not too painful, but the knee barks a lot the next day. Will alternate that for the next two weeks until I see the knee doc. Wish I would not have done that kneecap scraping, but nothing I can do about it now. Every other day running for thirty or forty minutes would be acceptable if that is all I get. Just don't want it to leave me too sore the next day.

Weather nerds say we may get some rain this weekend. That would sure be dandy!

Just completed 40 years of running and racing distances from 1500 meters to 50 miles. After 4 back surgeries, surgeries to both feet, having my knee and ankle broken after being hit by a truck, and having had meniscus surgery in 2011, I have limited my competitive running to races I can complete in an hour or less. I think I have used up all 9 of my running lives, so I am hoping to stay injury free for a few more years! My goal now is to try and run 4 days a week with two days of quality work, and to supplement that with three days a week of weights and bike intervals at the gym. The Combination of Year/Kilometers (40 plus years and over 110,000 kilometers) have enjoyed their full effect on me orthopaedically.
