Update: Running In The Rain

Sign in to follow this  


It has been a really hectic last few weeks. I've been getting steady work, and haven't had much time to do anything. Most days I'm up by eight and don't go t bed till two. I missed one full week of the gym because I had work-related issues, and as I was preparing to go back this past week, I injured my knee. There's no damage, but it's been sore and a little finicky, so I haven't pushed it. 

Here's a tip: when it's raining outside, and you are barefooted, don't run back into the garage to get out of the rain, because you will slip and your leg will get caught behind you and also you will fall flat on your ass and it will hurt a lot. Learn from me, friends. Learn from me. 

Today I decided to try and play golf, to see how it felt, and it feels fine. It's a little sore right now, but it help up well. I also scored well, marking down a +6 41 that included an incredible quadruple bogey on the second hole. The driver did not come out of my bag for the rest of the round, and I was much better for it.

The driver has been a mess lately. Whatever I was doing to hit up on it in Phoenix has totally disappeared. I'm trying too hard now, and I can't even make contact with the damn thing anymore. Every other club has been really good, except the driver. If it would stop raining here, I would get out on the range and get some practice in but where I live in Georgia has been essentially underwater for two weeks. 

Tomorrow I have to cover a high school football game at 730 pm, so weather depending I'll try and get some practice in tomorrow morning and afternoon.

LOL!  Nice.  Sounds like something I would do.  Take more time than you think you need for a knee, go easy on it for a while so it can properly heal (sure you know this already).

Have you talked nice to your driver lately?  Told it how great it is and how you just couldn't do without it?  Polished it and gave it a nice rub down and bought it a fancy new hat?  Maybe it just feels neglected and needs some TLC.

I agree with @Gator Hazard give your knee time to heal.  I was a bit reckless with my knees (football, racquetball, long distance running) and ended up tearing both the medial and lateral menisci which made running long distances difficult and painful.  I haven't opted for surgery yet but it's unavoidable if I want to ever run marathons again.

I recommend that you try to find a Flightscope/Trackman to see where you are with hitting up. I found that in the beginning I needed to keep a very close eye on it in the beginning because I would slip back into bad habits.
