Ran a hard 13K in the cold on tuesday. Thursday I ran 5 bye .6K very strong and fast as part of an 8K run. Saturday I got 9K in on another cold day, with four long intervals of 1.25K, 1.5K, 1.5K, and 1K. When I got home from that, my back hurt pretty badly. Today I just did a slow easy 7K on a nice 64 degree sunny day. Once I got home, I stretched, iced my back, and ate a mexican celebrex (my friend guy bought me 200 pills, a couple years worth until they are generic and my shitty express scripts will pay for them). I am now watching the Browns get trashed by the Broncos. Anyway, hope this is not a serious or long back issue, as I am only 10 days from the year of the snake. We shall see. I still believe that senior running is just injuries with short periods of running in between! Oh, Colt McCoy is now in the game so the Weeble must be hurt!

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.
