Thursday I slept longer and decided to do 40 minutes of cardio dvd inside since it was colder outside. In the afternoon, DC and I did 3 hours 15 minutes of volunteer work. I was wiped out after that.
Today is meditation class, then yoga class. I need some XT. There is also an excellent tea class.
Happy runs, All!
Does DC volunteer at the library with you or were you volunteering somewhere else? Sometimes sleep is better!!!
DC and I both volunteer at the library.
OMG IT WAS UNDER 80 DEGREES WHEN I STARTED MY RUN!!!! Well 79 degrees and no worries it was 81 when I finished. I believe it's to cool down a little next week. I can't wait. It's been 90 practically every day in Sept & Oct. We've been swimming a lot but I still want a break from it. I only ran about 3 miles. Not my slowest nor quickest pace as of late. DH will get home late but has to physically go to work tomorrow and Sunday
. Our neighborhood yard sale is tomorrow and DH always wants us to participate. I had to do the spring one alone as well. I don't mind it but my little ones hate watching their stuff go and/or are trying to play with it. Sometimes I wish my kids would be lazier and I could just plop them down with a movie and popcorn.

The 90's are really hard for running. When the temps finally lower, all of a sudden you have this speed that was there all the time. Heat puts a damper on our sport for sure.
Physical therapy is kicking my *ss. This is good, so I'm okay with it, but damn. It's still kicking my *ss, ya know?
Got to 115 degrees flexion yesterday and that meant I was able to use the stationary bike, which is great. None of the PT exercises felt particularly *hard* during the session, but the after-effect was that I was dragging by bedtime. It takes a lot of energy, I guess, to simultaneously heal from surgery AND re-build muscle. I really did feel this morning about the same as I would after a 20-miler or trail 50K, even down to retaining fluid just like after a race, and having that similar quality of really deep sleep.
I can tell I need a bit of a rest day, so I'm not going to do full PT today; just a walk and some of the ROM exercises. It's also date night tonight; T-Bone and I are going out to eat this evening. He's had a rough week at work and could use some decompression, and I could stand to get out of the house. Almost two more weeks of driving restrictions left and I'm getting quite antsy about being cooped up.
Healing takes a lot of effort and some rest. I know it's hard to rest.
