A knee shake and a much more sober social media post slowed my career to 10k until 2020 began to feel comfortable.

Days later stupidly go jogging in flat sole Converse My knee was still moaning for that. While I have seen countless medical dramas from Doogie Howser MD to House, I am still, surprisingly, not qualified as a doctor, but I still feel well versed in leg physiology to diagnose my knee as a bit screwed up.

I decided to rest it for a few days. The decision had the double benefit of allowing me to postpone the purchase of another pair of trainers after a single pair was robbed or robbed of me in a gym that I will never visit again.

But in the end the pain subsided and I had no choice but to go shopping for corridors, a process that is now as disconcerting as it always has been. I entered a store dedicated to the sale of such things and immediately faced walls and walls of horribly ugly shoes that were priced from less than € 40 to more than € 200. Since it was still time to sell, there were discounts on all the store, so I randomly brought a pair of Adidas for € 50, below € 113.

Hours later I took them for a walk.

When I reached the end of the road I looked at my exercise tracker again. It still reads 4.2km. Then stupidity died on me.

Like, I suspect, to many people, I find it difficult to adapt the exercise to my day with work and children and the appeal of Netflix and Twitter and chocolate and everything else. But the needs must and, on January 6, I managed to squeeze a small Christmas race in a small window between getting home from work and having dinner.
