Buzzin'

It's happening...

I can feel it...

Undeniable.

Unmistakable.

On training success

And pain free running...

Each time I run I feel incredible, and I don't want to stop don't want it to end. But I make it stop, nothing more than 30 minutes at a time still - but next week I get to stretch 30 to 45 one day a week - because I'm demanding of myself patience, patience, patience in building the way a build is supposed be built - slow like the overnight shift with more doctors than patients...

Chicago, from the 80s - yea, it makes me feel old... "You don't know what you've got, until its gone, and i found out just a little too late..." I appreciate painfree running more than ever right now - almost the best sensation I can imagine... (almost...)

Speaking of old, my patients never know how old I am. I inevitably am told still that I look young for a doc, and I typically ignore the comments or brush them aside with a "I don't feel very young for a doc though" retort. Couple nights ago I'm sewing up the forehead of the latest Club Platinum beer bottle to the head victim when she says "You look young, how old are you?" "Oh, I'm plenty old" I said back. "How old are you, like 38?" I chuckled and said "Something like that" to which she responded "No, I bet you're 42..." "No no, why don't you stick with your first guess, I like that a lot better..."

Maybe I don't look as young as I feel like I look anymore...

Thanks for joining me for My Daily Spin...

You look young. Can I call you "Son" when I ask you to get stuff for me? ;-)
so glad to hear your healing and yes, it is VERY hard to exercise patience when you are coming back!
