The Sidelined Runner

When the doctor's orders are to stop running for a month what do you do?

Well, first of all, you stop running.  But then what?

In the Sound of Music, Maria tells Captain Von Trapp, "Reverend Mother always says when the Lord closes a door, somewhere he opens a window". 

I don't know if the Cannibal has discussed things with the Reverend Mother or not, but hopefully he has found an open window to get him through this time of non running.

Ice fishing, masonry or maybe a little quilting.  Whatever your fancy, now is the time to try something new.

Because sometimes, "time off" can be your friend.


  1. Shiva will be pushing the Cannibal out of that window shortly, as he decided it would be nice to shovel snow this morning.

  2. Oh no! It's so hard to keep a good runner down!

  3. I'll be bargaining with the doctor tomorrow to start limited walking on the treadmill. I'm figuring that I'll be 10 pounds lighter now that Shiva has taken a pretty good chunk out of my arse after the shoveling incident!

    The Cannibal.

  4. Whatever doesn't kill you will make you stronger - do you think they were talking about Shiva?


Thank you for your comments.
