LostTrailRunner II Episode 15

Podcast show notes:

I head out to Yellow River Park for a walk/run on the trail. During my w/r I discuss my goal for the Peachtree Road Race, mention a few of the podcasts that I listen to, and of course complain about my foot some more.

The next day I decide it may be a good idea to start another training plan so I can do Peachtree without suffering aerobic distress.

The intro and outro music is from Digital Juice, the intro is “Hardwired” and the outro is “ComingDown.”

This podcast was recorded using a Zoom H2 Handy Recorder.

Podiatrist Today

Today I went back to my foot Doctor, I was kind of down because my foot had started hurting again and I was just wanting to run again with no pain.
Perry Julien is my foot doctor and he is probably one of the best there is, I lifted the following from the Atlanta Foot & Ankle Center website, I hope they don’t mind.

For the 1996 Summer Olympic Games Dr. Julien was chosen to coordinate podiatry services in the Olympic Village Polyclinic and to serve as medical administrator for the Olympic Marathons and Racewalks. He is the co-medical director for the Peachtree Road Race and Atlanta Marathon and was also the medical coordinator for the Women’s United Soccer Association (WUSA) and assistant team physician for the Atlanta Beat. He is currently the team podiatrist for the Atlanta Thrashers professional hockey team and the Atlanta Falcons professional football team as well as consulting podiatrist for several Georgia collegiate athletic programs.
Orthotic after adjustment, extra lift on heel
Hope this gel works.

To say the least, I trust his opinion on my foot. He adjusted my orthotics today and gave me a prescription for an anti-inflammatory gel. I have another appointment in about 4 weeks, we will see how it goes.

I told him I wanted to run Peachtree this year and he said that he saw no reason that I couldn’t, which was good news.

Rainy Day on the Trail

I parked over at the Picnic area at Stone Mountain then headed out on the trail toward Indian Island. I was running out for 17:30 then turning around for a short run today. When I started running it had stopped raining so I thought I would have a nice easy run on a somewhat wet trail.
Of course as I turned around at the 17:30 mark, the bottom fell out and it poured all the way back. It is funny how the weather actually knows when I am at the farthest point out so it can rain on me all the way back, then slack off just after I finish.
Still had a very good outing today, haven’t run in the rain in some time. Felt good.

Overcast and Rainy Day

Went out to Stone Mountain this afternoon for a run on the trail. Rainy, overcast day, here is a shot of the mountain from the Skylift parking lot.
