i heart beyond bread














i stopped on my way back from beyond bread to get
some gatorade at walgreens. i picked-up some saliditos too.
the white skinned lady with a southern accent behind the counter asks,
Her: You like these things? (holding the saladitos)
Me: Love em.
Her: That's funny with me being from Europe and you being white and all.

How is that knee anyway?

What was the knee trouble? I'm currently facing a bad case of PF syndrome caused by a drastic muscle imbalance between my outer and inner quads on my right knee. I can average thirty miles a day hiking over steep terrain, but I can't run or bike even a mile without the pain becoming noticeable. I'm going to start accupuncture treatments and weight training in a week or so. I can't stand being off the bike any longer.

patellar tendinitis/ patellar femoral pain syndrome depending on who you talk to.
i tried acupuncture for a month and didn't really notice a difference.
strengthening, massage therapy and stretching seems to be working as does a return to the bike and style i rode before this happened.
i'm going to check out these guys next week.
