Father and Son

Injury update. The things go wrong, since the day of the fall I feel pain inside my shoulder, day after day always stronger. The movements are difficult and the doctor just now has said that I need an MRI. Swimming is impossible and I am very upset because I had planned some races in open sea in the near future.
 
Father and Son. Luckily I can run but, not to overstress my back (a “nice” memory of the L3 vertebra fracture), I do my workouts every other day. The running mate is my son Paolo 34 y.o. and in this period we use to run through the country or near the sea. The pace improves but I cannot push over my limits: too many recent and severe injures. Here are 2 photos of our last workout near a pinewood.

This is the log-book since my last post. What do you log? Which information?

  1. What a blessing to be able to run with your son! I used to run with my dad when we still lived in the same town and those are some of my most special memories with him!

  2. Hope your shoulder heals soon. Good that you can run with your son. Keep running well under the limits and I'm sure you'll still improve. 9.5k at 5:48s is good running!

    I record a lot! Distance, pace, heart-rate, shoes, weather, course, heart-beats per kilometre, and how I'm feeling.

  3. The shoulder situation must be extremely frustrating! I keep a basic log at Training Peaks - if I'm using my Garmin for a workout (which I do not always), that data will transfer electronically, but I don't tend to look at it very closely.

  4. I hope the shoulder gets better and the news is good. Nice that you are able to run with your son. I wish I could get my daughter to run with me. I log distance, pace per miles, average pace and miles on the shoes. Take Care.

  7. You run the same route every time? It's great that you have a running companion. My sons only run with me very occasionally and prefer to run faster than their slow mother.

  12. My son doesn't like running ... he goes swimming twice a week. We, my son and I, used to play football some years ago with other friends with their kids. At moment I don't play football: I am afraid it may be dangerous for my knees.

    Your shoulder feels better soon and you will be ready for the race for the cure on May 19th.

  13. Keep being patient! I'm so sorry your shoulder is bugging you. I'm glad you can run, and with your son too. My son will be doing his first 5K on Tuesday evening--very excited about that! I hope he can finish it. He thinks he can, and maybe that's all that matters.

  16. Stefano I'm so sorry to hear you have such bad luck with your body, it just isn't cooperating.

    Cool that you are able to run with your son.

    I log my distance, time, pace per km, speed per/hour, average and maximum heart rate, if I do tempo parts of speedwork I write down the times, weather conditions and how I felt (did I have pain somewhere, did I feel good etcetera)

  17. When it rains it pours!
    I am so sorry about the injuries! But how wonderful to be out there with your son.
    Stay strong.

  18. I hope you heal quickly, but sometimes you really do need time to heal properly. How nice to be running with your son!

    Take care. :)

  19. Sorry to hear about your injuries. I'm also injured. I think I tore my hamstring at a run session earlier this week. I find out from my physio today how bad it is. Hope you recover from your injuries soon.
