Running Chick in Injury, Robins
Comment (1) | Trackbacks (0)
I've noticed a robin hanging around my deck over the past couple of weeks and this afternoon I decided to investigate. I found several nests in the spaces between the joists, but this one was the only one occupied.I have no idea how old the eggs are or when to approximate their hatch date. Nor do I know about how long the babies stay in the nest after they've hatched. This could quite possibly put a damper on refinishing my deck this month. Also, some enterprising black bird is taking advantage of my unfinished eave and built a nest there as well. I almost didn’t notice it. but I glanced up at the roof and noticed dried grass coming out of the mesh part, thought WTF?, then noticed the bird on the neighbor’s roof having a hissy fit at me. Oh. Pardon me. So sorry for interrupting your nest sitting.
Non-running update: the pain in my right shin is gone, the pain in my left shin seems to come and go. It didn’t bother me much yesterday, but it did today. I have no idea why, I haven’t been doing anything exercise-related in four days. It is better than last Thursday and it feels better every day, so I’m sure I’ll be fine by the race next Saturday. Just in case, I’m planning on carrying several packets of Bio-Freeze with me.
In case you’re interested, my pain is narrowed down to one 3” spot on my shin where the big muscle starts to taper. I’m a textbook case of posterior shin splints.
