The weather today has gone from [weekend prediction] nice and comfortable to [mid-week prediction] muggy and warm to [last night’s forecast] hot, humid and a good chance of a thunderstorm.
At this time, I would like to renege my previous protesting to The Bright Yellow Teamshirts as I am now thankful they are not white.
In preparation for tonight’s race, I have my gym bag packed: Two pairs of gym shorts (one wicking, one terry, both black), a pair of apres race jean shorts, a dressy tank, a casual tank, two pairs of underpants, four pairs of socks, two sports bras, one regualr bra, new contacts, contact solution, SPF50 sunblock, face sunblock, moisturizer, deoderant and my gym sneakers….
Due to the weather, I am also sporting the very stylish Malleolock:
(Yes, mine is actually multi-colored)
What’s a Malleoloc? Functional orthosis that replaces taping for lateral ankle stabilization. Anatomical, thermoplastic support stops lateral twisting and prevents ankle from shifting forward. Heel area is open allowing proprioceptors to regulate naturally.
Right, so basically it keeps my ankle (including the hyperextended Achilles tendon) from rolling round.
I’m hoping to be able to hobble brace free for the event. At least with jeans I don’t look quite as foolish.
Right, so whoever is dancing to the Rain Goddess, please stop, at least until I can not look like a drowned rat. Merci Beaucoup.
