>Grrr. Dr. V is cranky. It’s two weeks since the marathon and I’m still stiff, slow, and achy. It’s an effort just to get under 9 mins/mile (my usual easy pace is 8:30).
I think I need another massage, but they cost $55. Still, it would probably help a lot. After the last one, I could touch my toes for the first time in months and now I’m back to being unable to reach them. (My left hamstring or sciatic nerve or something is really bothering me.) So, should I splurge again?
Oh, and speaking of marathons, my brother (let’s call him Fast Fizzy, as that’s a moniker he uses with me) is running the NY Marathon in a week. Fast Fizzy is so f’ing fast that he got automatic entry (no lottery) and gets to start ahead of the regular masses (but behind the Kenyans — he’s not *that* fast). His PR is just over 30 minutes faster than mine and the f’er is in his 50s! Damn him! (I kid, of course.) Anyway, run like the wind, Fast Fizzy. We’ll be thinking of ya!
