Here I've been taking it easy the last little while. As I recall about the end of November I dialed back the workouts a bit. I haven't done a really serious workout for a couple of weeks now, and it seems like forever since I've run.
So you'd think going into a massage that I'd be all relaxed, no tight spots, right? Ha. Upper back and shoulders, tight. Low back, tight. Hams and calves a bit tight. Quads and IT band, killer, painfully tight. Arms, lots of tightness. Neck, tight. I guess my feet weren't tight.
How can this be? I was whimpering throughout some of the massage. At least, I thought, it will get me going for our first yoga class of the session. Fortunately Fiona takes it easy on us, but by the end of the night my right hip was aching all over again. Sigh.
What I'm not surprised about is the snow. In a couple hours we've already got 4 cm or so, and it's coming down hard, thick, wet, and heavy. Doing the driveway tomorrow is going to be slow. If it does this all night I might not be going in to work, though it doesn't call for that much snow. Then again, we're already past the minimum of what they called for, and no let up in sight.
