|My nephew is awesome. He gave me this yesterday and hugged me forever. |
He doesn't even know how much I needed that!
It's been a while.
Personal life stuff got complicated and all the ups and downs were too much to put into words. Still are a bit, but at some point you just have to say I'm tired of thinking about my own stuff, ya know!?
SO here's a winter/spring catch up --
I was running great.
Had a relaxing week in the Keys -- where, since I could run, I did NOT get on my mom's bike and break an elbow again. Whew.
Went to some Flyers games and Phillies games.
This school year has been the toughest yet. Coworker and administration frustrations, and nothing being done about it. Grr.
Got into Wales Marathon training, and BUGGER! My right calf got all pissy. I've had to take some time off, get work done, and do some medicinal return to running. SO far so good, but I'm not sure I'll get enough of a return to run the full in Wales. We'll see how things go as I get some mileage back. On a related note, I think I deal with "calf heart attacks"... google it. One chiro didn't really give any credibility to that possibility, but he also doesn't spend a ton of time with his patients. A new guy I went to thinks these chronic calf issues seems to stem from a weak butt. Or something like that. So now I'm strengthening my butt and hips.
I've got another house project started. Two actually. Cleaning out my massive closets, and redoing my dining room. Every time I try to load pics here something gets wonky, so I'm not promising you'll see before and afters...
Warmer weather is here, the sun is shining longer, and I was down at the beach and took my first outside shower of the year.
SO even when some things are still a difficult struggle in my life, there's a little bit of good there, too.
