Favorite Running Quotes:
"Sooner or later the serious runner goes through a special, very personal experience that is unknown to most people.
Some call it euphoria. Others say it's a new kind of mystical experience that propels you into a elevated state of consciousness, a flash of joy.
A sense of floating as you run. This experience is unique to each of us, but when it happens, you break through a barrier that separates you from casual runners. Forever. And from that point on, there is no finish line. You run for your life. You begin to be addicted to what running gives you."
2. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
You’ve no doubt heard this. And you’ve probably recited it in your mind on a run or at the gym when you’re just beginning to get in shape. You have a goal in sight and this quote brings you back to the current moment.
But the problem is that many runners forget all of the steps between the first one and the goal. If your goal is to run under two hours for the half marathon then you need to be honest about all of the little steps to get to that goal.
Followup with surgeon. He said everything looked good...which I already knew. He said I could run at 12 weeks (4 weeks to go!!) and start side to side movement at 6 months. I asked him why my lower leg still feels numb. The block they used during surgery is still wearing off. That must be one heck of a block to last 8 weeks.
PT strength test-I failed. I needed to hit 65% of my body weight on a single leg-leg press. I couldn't even do it double leg. And I couldn't do the single leg squat up and down on the chair. Sigh....this is way harder than I ever imagined it would be.
1:46-1700 feet elevation. Hike up Grove Creek with my son. Felt good going up, but going down was really tricky. I may wait a few weeks till I do it again. Not sure the knee can handle it again that soon.
