If I can't go out on a trail run on a beautiful, sunny, late winter weekend, baking is the next best thing. That and working in the garden. While Marc was at work today, the little guy and I started the garden prep, rearranged a few beds and pulled some weeds that are already showing their ugly faces. I'm determined to get ahead of the dandelions this year!
On the exercise front, I completed 5.5 hours of cardio cross training (in addition to some yoga and strength training), mainly on the elliptical and pool running. I usually count miles instead of time in my weekly running log, but looking back I've noted that in January I ran 7-8 hours a week. So less cardio for sure, but 5.5 doesn't seem that far off. On Thursday, I went to my chiropractor for a second opinion and received some heartening, good news, including a definitive treatment plan. But it will still take time. I'd like to think that Pac Rim is still a possibility and it may be. But I've also discovered that trying to mentally fit my recovery into a ever shortening length of time is stressing me out. And maybe even hampering my recovery if I try to do too much too soon. So mentally, I may just let it go. But we'll see. : )
