Now or not for a while

They say time was invented so everything wouldn't happen at once. Yeah.

Swam Monday, back to sub 19 again for a 1000m. It felt good. Now, if I can manage my time, I can start going longer. Water ran with Katie about 15 minutes beforehand, and stretch in the water after.

The last few massages have been brutal almost painful affairs. My legs have been so tight, and my therapist is so good, and, well, you know how that story ends. But a few things have come together. I'm standing at my desk for most of the day. I can feel my posture being better, and lots of other things are better too. During the day I can do subtle stretches.

Over the weekend I was essentially doing several hours of intense forward stretch, and I was wondering how that would end up. Turns out pretty good. My legs were much better going into the massage, and they've felt more relaxed.

Now to find time for a run. I don't like running after a massage, so last night we went to the garden centre instead of me running. Wed is yoga with the lovely and talented and funny FF! Thursday I'm donating more of my nearly perfect blood, so no running after work. Friday. Let's hope it's not raining too hard...

Except for my injured running buddies, and I'm not trying to rub it in, but how's the season going for you?


  1. Good Morning! Glad to hear your standing desk is working well. After years of having babies and some injuries, I finally feel like everything is starting to fall into place. It's about darn time ;)

    1. That is super! I know about the injury recovery part of that. I have trouble with the starting gradually though. This time I'll try to sneak up on distances much further than about 10 K.


Looking forward to reading your comment!
