In lieu of my recent self-imposed misfortunes, I purchased a month-long pool membership to the YWCA today, as it looks like land running will be an infrequent luxury for the next couple weeks. With any luck, this will prove to be a spur-of-the-moment bad investment and a $36 hit in the wallet wouldn't be such a bad thing. Believe me, I don't wanna be in the pool any more than I have to be, but just in case, at least I can try to maintain some semblance of my hard-earned fitness until I'm able to pound the pavement again with some pain-free regularity. Stay tuned here for details.
With that being said, I "ran" for 51 minutes in the water this afternoon before I got booted so the wrinkly old ladies could commence with their waterobics. Honestly, I didn't mind the early heave-ho because I was about ready to unstrap the belt and sink to the bottom at that point anyways. In the midst of my water treading, I did 10 x 1 min "hard" to get the heart-rate up a bit. This afternoon I re-read Scott's chapter on cross training in Kemibe's Run Strong and have formulated a few ideas for some potential aquatic interval sessions over the next couple days. No offense Scott, but I can't say that I'm looking forward to it.
And that's gonna have to do it for today, as it's now 11:37 and I'm set to head home from work so I can get some rest. I've got an early chiro appointment tomorrow morning with Dr. Sjogren, so hopefully he can help speed the healing process along some. Here's to hoping, at least. Happy Friday.

We should get together for a 10-minute run while I'm home for break. Or maybe a walk.
