Attacked

Today:
Distance: 11.1 km
Time: 64' 40"
Rate: 5' 49" per km
Weather: sunny, temp 19 degrees, humidity 50%, wind North 15 kmph
Week: 67.0 km, Sept: 369.95 km, Year: 3491.8 km

Not concentrating is the likely answer to " How did that happen". I did a " CJ" in unspectacular fashion on a bit of gravel road leading into Pine Is reserve. Looking after I dusted my self down, examine the body damage, I can't work out how it happened. There was nothing there to trip over, no tiny rocks or a piece of string, nothing. Even the shoe laces were triple knotted.
But, as well as the usual skin off left side, knee, top of leg, shoulder & elbow, a painful rib has had me struggling to get through the afternoon.
It's the usual, it only hurts when you breath in, cough, sneeze etc. I hope a good night's sleep will help or there will be plenty of walking tomorrow up and down the mountain.
A bit later when I resumed trying to run, I was attacked by a magpie near the playground at the northern end of Pine Is reserve. I'll stay away from there for a while as the little bugger was nasty.
The rest of the run was very slow and it showed in the km rate today. It was a really nice day to just amble along, but the breathing was difficult. I would have liked 10 minutes in the water but again too many young nymphs about not wearing much.

  • Sounds like a nasty "CJ" - I might put a few bob on her to clean you up in the handicap tomorrow.

  • Pei Pa Koa (www.geocities.jp/ninjiom_hong_kong/index_e.htm ) is one of the few Chinese natural cough remedies that have been scientifically studied. it's something like herb plus honey, and it's sweet, thick and black in color. If you have a cough, look for it! It used to be one of my favourite natural cough remedies.

    if your cough persists, seek professional help such as traditional Chine
