How a 250+ Pound Couch Potato Got Healthy

Friday, February 06, 2009


That's right. Today I didn't make it to the gym. I didn't run. I worked, but basically sat in my chair all day.

And you know what? My leg is still bothering me. Where I thought the discomfort had localized, it really hadn't, walking around I was trying to pinpoint exactly where it was happening, but it seemed to move around. Sometimes it would be there, and sometimes it would be completely gone. I'm just going to have to give in and see the doctor.

Anyway, I just had to whine a little. I feel like I've been hurting for months, when it's only been a week. I think I said it before, this is the first real injury I've ever had. I suppose it's a good thing, I was injured doing something healthy. The fact that I was injured running means that I wasn't sitting around, I was running.

That's enough whining for now. I'm taking my son on a short 4-mile hike to see bald eagle migration, or at least that's the plan. We won't know for sure if there are any out there until we actually get there. But it'll be fun.
