I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

I’m a 6:30 mile guy + steamrolled by car update!!

I started trying for 1mile times late August. Since then, I’ve attempted it a total of 8 times. It’s a tough run, pretty much giving everything your body can give, for those grueling 6+ minutes. Now, it’s almost to the point where I dread it, ’cause it completely drains/saps me … AND, because I haven’t seen much improvement. Only 17 seconds separates my fastest & slowest times, but with two 6:30s, and two 6:31s outta the eight, that seems to be my average, so for the time being, I consider myself a 6:30 miler. I know I’m capable of PRing it at 6:10 – 6:15. It’s just a matter of nailing it. One day, before it kills me, lol!

Today I noticed this big-ass bruise. Thing’s the size of a football. Never really felt any pain when the car hit me, my ankle certainly did though. Now, it really showing where I got smacked by the car’s hood. And it’s starting to hurt – as a bruise hurts.

… damn danistrulytheman, it don’t look good … OUCH!!

my hit by a car 8K!

Finally happened. Old dude did say “sorry” … then sped off. Cocksucker! Happened at the 4.5K mark, took me about 45 seconds before I could pause my RunKeeper. My ankle hurt like hell, but when I resumed running, really didn’t feel it. NOW, it’s tightening up, and hurts even more. I’m concerned/thinking this’ll keep me outta the running game for a few days. Guess I’ll just have to wait and see how it feels . Something tells me I’ll be waking up with a stiff, sore, swollen, ankle. Cocksucker – pay attention to runners!

Hit by a car, 45 seconds wasted – and still a sub 37 minute 8K. Yep, happy birthday danistrulytheman!

lacerated ankle. hope it ain’t broken.


still fast.
