Last week, we vacationed in OBX. I had the lovely opportunities of getting in three decent runs and taking a vinyasa yoga class. The yoga class kicked my butt more than the mileage – just like every run is different, so is every yoga pose. I woke the next morning so sore in my torso. Must have been from all the extra twists. Regardless, I like being a little sore. It’s a nice reminder of where I’ve been. So, I spent a lot of time relaxing and now I’m back to reality. This reality slapped me in the face on Tuesday. I have no idea what the hell happened, but before I knew it I was sitting at my kitchen table, having just devoured my dinner, with a slamming head ache. That night I slept. Wednesday was a little more reasonable in terms of stress, but I picked up a neck strain along the way requiring ibuprofen, massaging and BioFreeze (my friend). I also slept my face off that night.
Today. Today is Thursday. AMEN. Today should provide a little more relief. My meetings, for one reason or another, are being moved or canceled. I’m anticipating a fairly light day. Hopefully, this gives me time to catch up on stuff.
Today. Today I sit here, drinking my coffee as I let the BioFreeze do it’s thing, looking towards the weekend.
Today. Today I sit here knowing that my neck needs to get under control as I have a race on Sunday.
Today. Today I sit here ready to tame the beast I lovingly call my ‘heaven and hell’.
After this week, this short week, I’m going to eat the shit out of those hills for breakfast. Bring it.
