Somehow I didn't think about hydration or nutrition for a 9-mile run. I quite possibly was confusing running with cycling. At any rate, I didn't cramp up or pass out, though I'm told I sweated a lot. Hey, you try being a big lumbering dude sometime.
Anyway, it was lots of fun to run with a group, and I think we're going to try to run and/or bike a couple of times a month. If we can manage to keep the group runs going through winter, that will help a lot for any spring race training.
We took off right after I got home, sweaty from racing some dude up Cole's Creek Rd on my bike commute home (unbeknownst to him). I should have been drinking more water throughout the day, but I somehow did not die as we ran up and down the hills of Superior Rd. Heck of a climb for an after-work jog though.
Oh, while I'm at it here, I did visit the orthopedist back on the 28th. No x-ray snapshot to share with you this time, but the doctor said that there's definitely bone filling in the fracture gaps, which is great news as it proves that it's healing as it should. Or in his terms, there's "radiological evidence of bone regeneration".
So I don't have to come see him again unless something unusual happens or my shoulder starts hurting. The plate can come out a year from my surgery if all goes well (and I end up wanting it out) but until then I'm SECRET TITANIUM MAN.
Go out and catch that Easter Bunny. Nancy ran for 10 miles in the sleet yesterday and still didn't manage to track him down.
Speaking of questionable pursuits, Nancy just signed up for the Journeys Half Marathon, and I signed up for the 5K. Not really what I was hoping for, but that's what my new roboshoulder dictates. It'll still be a fun time.
