I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

AM- After 2 days of lots of ice, plus using the trigger point massage and ultrasound that Paul was kind enough to lend me, I'm back.  I couldn't walk up stairs on Monday, but am almost pain free today (and hopefully will be tomorrow, after this run).  Ran around Idaho Falls, from Marci's parent's house to the greenbelt to the far side of Fremont park, with some loops.  13.5 miles, 1:39:05, 7:21 avg.  Felt pretty good, tired by the end.

Great day for a run...I must have missed you out on the greenbelt, I was out there running at about 11:15 (I tried calling just to check on your run and you were out running!). Catch up with you tomorrow morning...I will call you tonight with a time.

From Jon on Thu, May 21, 2009 at 15:30:15 from

Sounds good- I heard you called. I started my run just before 10 and was home at 11:40, so you have been just behind me on the trail.

13.5? Nothing like easing back into it, huh? Glad you are back at it...

From Jon on Thu, May 21, 2009 at 16:36:14 from

Cody, I figure I can't let you use this week to pull further ahead on the mileage board... so I'll be going out again later today.

So do you think the ultra sound thingy helped?

From Jon on Thu, May 21, 2009 at 16:56:15 from

Don't know. It sure tingled a bit. I figure it didn't hurt. What's your opinion on it?

I know the trigger point helped- really loosened it up, though it also made it really swell up.

From paul on Thu, May 21, 2009 at 19:43:21 from

I was never sure if the ultrasound was doing anything. But I've felt the same way about it when I got ultrasound from a "real" unit at physical therapy sessions. Not very overwhelming, but I guess that doesn't mean that it doesn't work.
