Dear Son

When you least expect it

Apple watch running app
Yesterday morning a new record by .04 miles.

 

Good things and bad things happen when you least expect it. We should accept this and get used to it because it will be our shadow until we die.

Out of nowhere yesterday morning, jogging at an 11-minute mile pace, a cramp or possibly an insidiously weird muscle pull in my lower left calf. Had to walk the remaining four miles.

Out of nowhere at breakfast after the run, Dr Coach (her husband is called Coach), Leslie shares that Coach asked Chapin why he keeps coming to practice. Our son replied, “Because of progress.”

He set a new personal record (PR) for distance without stopping.

How Much Is Enough?

Barely a warmup

Colonoscopy prep schedule
The 15 year old self-managed yesterday’s prep for this morning’s colonoscopy.

 

Compromised and settled for a 3.5 mile run yesterday. It was raining, plus i needed wanted to be back in time to oversee the start of a teen’s medical prep.

Never thought there’d be a day when 3.5 miles hardly felt worth it. As if it was barely a warmup.

Interesting how life unfolds.
