I injured myself last night. I know I did all this bragging about “going out and running in stupid cold weather” . After dealing with my septic in the afternoon – I decided that it was just too cold. The wind was whipping and wind chills were about -15. At 40, I’m thinking I just have a better sense of what is useless bravado and what is challenging. I also have learned over the years it’s ok to admit failure. So I didn’t run. I figured another night off would be fine for the knee. I needed to give Steve a ride home from the local garage and he convinced me to come in and try out Throwback Brewery’s “Afraid of the Dark” series latest release. It is a milk coffee stout. It was amazing! Paid for it later since I am lactose intolerant but yea TMI….sorry.
Check out Throwback. The two women who run it are fantastic and they make great beer using all locally sourced ingredients.
Yep- I was a lazy bastard last night. Sat around watching a DropKick Murphy’s concert on TV and then headed to bed. You’re probably saying ‘I thought you got injured?’ About 4am I sort of woke up and started stretching, no idea why but as I was pointing my toes and pulling I started to get a sharp pain in my calves…I tried to stop but it was too late, I felt my calf muscle lock up. I lay there wide awake wanting to scream. I knew if I did, Lise would wake up and start punching me or try to muffle my screams by placing her pillow into my mouth. I tried to relax, started breathing deep, thinking of something pleasant and slowly the pain went away but I could tell I may have tweaked it. I got up to put a log on the fire and yep , right calf is a mess.
Who the hell injures themselves sleeping?!?!? This guy…
Going to Boston again tonight to see the Bruins play the Islanders. Tomorrow is Laundry (laundromat for 3 months ahhhhhh) hopefully they have wifi and I can write all morning. Farmers market, light run, then Burns night out. I might write about the night of haggis and scotch filled messiness , we shall see.
Sunday more running- work dinner that evening.
I was looking at the weather for next week and we have a heat wave coming in. 38 on tuesday?!
