    Awe... did you get a lil owie' on your wittle foot? You need to man the fuck up, tape that bitch up and commence with tabata sprints ASAP!

    In all my years of drinking I was lucky to avoid major trauma. There were some very close calls though. Good times.

    Get well...

        A small quibble from an ex-cardio junkie...
        Anything slower than a 7 minute mile is jogging (not running). A nine minute mile is a full on plod.

        That said, yesterday while jogging in the park in my stinky Vibrams, I was passed by a very large person. That never woulda happened before, but now I don't care. I'm there to look at trees and move around without hurting myself.

        I've done the drunken run home from the pub several times. The best was during the winter. Between the booze and being wofully underdressed for -32C (uh...-25 F), it's amazing how fast you can run. The Downside: I was damned near sober by the time I got home.

          Makes me want to avoid public pools forever!
          Don't let anybody tell you, "You can't" just because they can't.

              Isn't that the truth!!!! Tea tree oil is a great gift from mother nature.

              I had a tick bite and a softball size horribly red area developed with tick bite in the middle.
              Middle of my shoulder blades so DH had to doctor it; just used cortisone at first, it even scared him,
              hurt like hell for a couple of days. (he had taken the tick off me and we think he didn't do it "right"' he felt real bad about it and was very concerned, telling me I needed to go to doc)

              I remembered I had some tea tree oil, diluted it down with some cucumber toner I had,
              within 8 hrs redness went away, a zillion tiny scabs it felt like came up but all soreness went away,
              couple of days later and it was gone and skin smooth gain.

                Salt water is great for soaking to clean wounds.

                            update: what did i say, 10 days? it's gotta be around 10 days now and i just took a walk/run to the bodega, barefoot.

                            the skin flaps fell off and now i am healed.

                            you know, at first, i thought it was the end of the world and that my foot would be cut off, but today, i see, this was no big deal.

                            the healing powers of the human system are amazing. i mean, one minute i'm gushing blood, skin is dangling, and the next minute i'm over here, walking barefoot.

                            so good to be back with the Good People.

                              That's one serious blackout.
