Owww!

My back is killing me! How is it that a person who can run 8 miles (without any pain) on Saturday can be annihilated by pulling weeds on Monday? I do have to say that I have arthritis in my spine. I also had 2 cervical disks removed, 3 vertebrae fused with bone grafts and titanium rods inserted - back in 1999. I guess I ought to just be grateful I can do anything at all!

This morning, I headed out for my run. My garmin was completely dead. I thought it was charging on its little charger thing, but it wasn't. That thing is so flimsy!

I also forgot my cell phone - which I never do. And when I saw a bunch of angry looking dogs, I realized that I forgot my pepper spray. I have never sprayed any creature great or small, but I feel better when I know I can if I need to. I also forgot to have gum in my mouth, or a bottle of water to drink. What the heck was I thinking? Oh well, it was a nice run never the less. Approximately 3 miles, in approximately I don't know how many minutes.

Yup, definitely one of those days!! I hope that back eases up for you. Sounds painful :-(

Pulling weeds is hard work! And you're probably bent over when doing it, which is far different from your psture when you run. Take care!

We all have days like that, as long as we all remember to get dressed in the morning, we are doing good. :) I hope your back recovers, and now you have an excuse to hire a landscaper to pull the weeds. I need to get a garmin 305, but I want to find out what is going on with the next version of it. They should be due for a new model.
