Update: Running In The Rain




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.

    • I confess I'm not the smartest person on the planet. But I really don't see any reason not to get vaccinated.  1- Its been proven to help. We can argue details of how much until the cows come home, but only a complete moron would believe it doesn't help at all. 2 - It's in your body for about 5 hours. 3 - We've been giving vaccines in this country since this has been a country. There has never been even one with a proven long term side effects. (Short term is possible, see point 4) 4 - The short term effects have been generally mild. Generally folks who have had any side effects would have been a lot worse off with the Covid side effects.  5 - If you've ever attended school (public or private) in this country you've had literally dozens of vaccinations. Why draw the line at this one?  6 - Where I live it's free and pretty much available in any drugstore. It takes maybe 2 minutes to get it.  7 - Oh and by the way, it may save your life.  8 - It's also likely to save the lives of several people you either do or do not know, depending on your R number.  9 - Even religious leaders are telling their congregations to get vaccinated.  Of all the things you want to fight against. Why this? Quit wasting all of your brain power thinking up goofy-ass reasons not to get vaccinated. Spend that brain power on other stuff. 
    • Sell them both (if they both have value) that way when you buy a new driver you can make that TS4 your back-up. You know its going to happen sooner than later. If you like the Helium shaft keep it and just sell the head. 
    • FFS. You think scientists are all huddled in some town in North Dakota hiding evidence from the world. We have plenty of clues about the efficacy of the vaccines. And let’s face it, you wouldn’t believe this top secret study if it didn’t fit your narrative anyway.
    • Went with Tiger. In grand scheme of things would be the memorable. Now who are these 'Raiders' tho?? 😜
    • My 3 personal favorite arguments against being vaccinated are:   1 - (I saw this one just the other day) "I don't put anything in my body until I understand all of the long term effects." .... Takes a huge sip of Diet Coke.  2 - "I'm not getting vaccinated because I don't want to be told what to do." ... Okay, so you don't stop at red lights?  3 - "I think the government is using this whole thing as an excuse to plant a transmitter inside me. ... Oh shit, I gotta go charge my phone."
