I have not been a very diligent blogger lately. I have been a border-line work-a-holic, which brings in the bacon, but I'm usually too tired to eat it. My running has tapered down to an even nothing. I am not training for nothing, and I have no big grand races on my calender or even in m,y bucket list.
My knee is better, but seems to take a slight backwards turn the day after any kind of run/hike/jog that lasts more than three miles. That being said, I am gonna try to run with my Tuesday night friends tomorrow, and I am signed up to run a half marathon on trailz this Sunday--the Half and Half., Go ME!
I have always been one to diagnose myself, and in the past few years II have gotten away from running in pronation control shoes. Could that lack of build-up on the inner heel have caused my knee to tweak slightly inward and I have effed it up? Maybe. So now, I am trying to wear only shoes with some motion control.
Can't have much more motion control than you get in hiking boots. These little gems--Asolo Fugitives--have been my faves lately.
So now, I am leaning more towards hiking. I subscribe to BackPacker Magazine, and all the amazing trailz that trail runners see, hikers can also see--just at a slower pace. I still have a burning desire to see new trailz and go places I've never been. I suppose everyone eventually slows down. :-/
