I like the new look, Elaine. Personally, I wouldn't mind if you posted every day. I enjoy reading Mark's daily progress.

As for me, I'm not running. I haven't since London's Run. I went to sports therapy 3 times so far. The diagnosis is ITB. I think it's starting to get better, but walking still hurts at times. Bike riding doesn't hurt, nor do push-ups, situps, and weights. I'm biding my time with those activities until I'm able to run again.

It turns out that bike riding is kind of a necessity now that we're down to one vehicle. I ride two miles down hill to work and two miles up hill to home in the evening.


  1. ITB is good, it means you aren't injured, just need to keep things stretched (not too much), run until it hurts a little bit but not a lot, then run maybe a little more if you feel like it, then eat ice cream. Repeat until it goes away.

  2. That's good advice Pops. I do it even when I don't have ITB.
