Running Blind

I obviously don’t keep this log updated any more.  It’s just too time-consuming, but I’m still running and it’s going well.  Wrote a piece called “Running Blind” about health issues, which the running club decided to run in the newsletter, so thought I would share it with a wider audience: http://okcrunning.com/Resources/NewsLetter/2012/201207July.pdf

Health update

I know, I know, I’ve gotten behind on posting my workouts.  I’ll catch up at some point but have started a second job as a professor of law so I’m a little short on time.  I have a moderate-sized herniated disc at L5/S1 so I’m not doing any activities other than long walks.  Yesterday I didn’t even do that.
