Did the earth move for you?

It just did for me. In other news, Linda is home from Ontario.

Monday was a messed up day. Someone scheduled me for an 8:30 meeting that needed a bunch of prep to get my head into the right space. Then they cancelled it at 8. Sigh. So I missed a water run with my buddy Katie.

While it wasn't raining I went out and marked a bunch of rocks with chalk, and then pressure washed them. The elusive last two that had escaped all washing are now washed. Then it rained. There was a break in the rain this afternoon and while not completely dry, they look pretty good. Meanwhile the grass is growing like crazy. I'm gonna have to weed whack it before I can cut it.

I spent a lot of time stretching and twisting, trying to get something to click and relax. No luck.

Tuesday morning I was in the pool, but wasn't feeling the swim love. I think the problem was that I hadn't eaten enough breakfast. After water running 10 or 15 minutes, I sort of mostly swam about 15. My head wasn't in the game at all. Maybe my swim mojo, and my run mojo are off doing something illicit or immoral together.

More time stretching and twisting tonight. Almost. So close. Then while I was shifting position between stretches there was an almighty thunk. A good one from my low back somewhere. I can already feel muscles relaxing. All is good. No, I didn't have a cigarette after.


  1. Congrats on the long awaited almighty thunk!

    1. There's been a whole series of smaller after-thunks. This could all be very good, or sort of like Wiley Coyote running over the cliff and the cloud is still evaporating...


Looking forward to reading your comment!
