Nearing 100

Since I started recording my mileage in early August I have ran/walked 96 miles. So, on Saturday I should reach the 100 mile mark. That's like running from my home to Tucson. Almost to the intersection of Ajo Way and I-10. That's where you can find the Tucson Electric Park, the spring home of the Diamondbacks and White Sox.

the past two nights I have run 4 miles each to reach 16 for the week. I plan to run 2 after the softball game tonite and 4 more on Saturday. That will give me 22 for a personal high.

Wednesday was particularly satisfying. I woke up with my left knee hurting a bit. But, it had hurt the last couple days. Nothing major, just a dull pain from adding mileage. But, I also woke up with my right ankle hurting. I don't know how this happened. I must have slept on it wrong. Anyway, I it hurt all day. I didn't think I would run. Since I worked at home most of the day, I didn't have shoes on. Later in the afternoon, I finally put my shoes on and the ankle was supported and didn't feel so bad. I decided to try the run at night and after about 1/4 mile, I didn't feel any pain in either place. It was a great run and I haven't had any pain since.

gotta run, Pat

Are you going to take a picture of you finishing 100 miles?
