Wednesday update

Monday: rest day, missed PT (Disney return + letters of rec used up every ounce of vim). MUST DO PT EVERY DAY!
Tuesday: 40 min as 1:1, PT. Recovery week.
Wednesday: 60 as 1:1, PT. Really nice - feeling a lot looser and smoother than I have for a while. This evening is talk, tomorrow afternoon is workshop, Brent's here till Saturday - things don't quite get simple again after that (I am annoyed at my past self) as I am going to Barcelona next week to do some class visits and tourism, but once that's done I am back in routine!

Sunday closes out the week

60 as 1:1 park loops - beautiful weather again, and it's a pretty nice little path. I did see ONE ginormous koi in the canal - people were feeding it bits of bread.

Biggest run week since May and back pain fiasco/intensive summer rehab - Mon. and Thurs. are rest days, but otherwise it was 60, 70, 100, 75, 60. PT every day. Very happy about this - things are feeling good, back and sciatic stuff very much better and jogging itself is feeling smoother and more relaxed. All good!

Saturday catch-up

Thursday: day off, did PT and walking expedition to the Jardin des Plantes with B.
Friday: long run first thing in the am, 100 mins. as 1:1 jog-walk. Very humid, and sore feet later on in the day, but not bad otherwise. PT done.
Saturday: 75 mins. 1:1 at Disney + PT post-breakfast and shower. Beautiful morning!

Brent is here! That is the big news. Did my run midday (rather warm, and park v crowded), 70 as 1:1, PT not long thereafter. R hip a little sore from overly deep twisting at yoga yesterday, will be more cautious going forward.

Hot yoga!

OK, it was a near thing, but I did get to 5pm hot hatha 90 class. Felt very hot and a bit queasy, but I am glad I did it. Doing some book work this afternoon helped me calm down a little - I am still feeling overly scattered though (need to start assembling the images for my talk, I don't usually have those, and also REALLY need to organize the information re: letters of rec....).


Sunday: 1hr as 1:1, PT. Monday: day off (Louvre walking!), just PT. Tuesday: 1hr as 1:1, slightly curtailed PT. Anxiety running very high, gotta go and do some work STAT (and figure out logistics on these chaotic letters of rec)....

95 as 1:1 jog-walk. Had modest breakfast, must shower and do PT and then get more food...

Friday, October 5, 2018


Thursday: rest day, just PT and walking (many work evening commitments this week, no space for yoga)
Friday: 1hr as 1:1 jog-walk, very nice, PT will have to wait for later as I am now running slightly late (it's 11:25, I'm in sweaty run clothes, and I need to be at a fancy lunch at 12:15, i.e. probably with blow-dried hair - had intended to take bus but I think it will have to be an Uber...)

Monday-Wednesday catch-up

Monday: 1.5hr hot hatha (Dominique's class, harder than Robin's on Saturday I think!)
Tuesday: 1hr as 1:1, plus 1pm hot hatha (Coco)
Wednesday: 1hr as 1:1.

Did PT all three days, I think I'm back in the routine on it now.

1hr as 1:1 jog-walk. Hot yoga yesterday worked a miracle, it rebalanced my left and right sides and everything was much more as it should be today than yesterday! No yoga this afternoon, didn't time fuel intake correctly, but I think I will go to two classes tomorrow, a hot one at 11 and then the evening back therapy yoga one as well....

Hot yoga!

FINALLY. It is pitiful, I have a very easy schedule here, but troubling managing the timing of sleep, jogging, fueling, office time has hampered me - if I eat breakfast but not lunch it's too long to hang around at the office till 5, it's more like I finish writing at 2:30 and go home and eat a late lunch! And yes, I need to pay more attention to food, where I am getting it and when I am eating it. But today, after my am 1.5hr jog-walk, I had decent breakfast at home _and_ picked up a ham and cheese sandwich which I ate at the office around 12. A 3hr digestive interval is needed before hot yoga; class at 3 was indeed 90+ minutes, hot but not too hot, GREAT!

90min hot hatha

Saturday update

Thursday: 1hr back therapy yoga (teacher is going to move this class to the evening as well so that we can have the full hour and a half)
Friday: 1hr as 1:1, would have liked end of day yoga in theory but (a) hadn't fueled correctly and (b) done in by hearings so just going home was a better choice.
Saturday: 1.5hr as 1:1, very nice, sciatica in evidence but not painfully so. At office now writing some pages (hahaha, Knausgaard is an inspiration, and also the place I am in this project is uncannily slightly reminiscent of his own project!), will go to 3pm hot hatha class. (FINALLY!)

Midweek update

Mon.: 1.5hr yoga back therapy class - SO GREAT!
Tues.: 1hr as 1:1 jog-walk, never did do PT, MUST do it daily...
Wed.: PT then 1:1 jog-walk - Becca has pointed out that really it should be done before the run, I resisted that theory but really it must be so (will still soon have second yoga mat at the office for days with genuine morning time constraint).

Saturday: 90 as 1:1! Woo-hoo! Attempted to go to hot yoga mid-afternoon but felt a little woozy as I was walking over and decided it would a better idea to buy food and come home and eat it.

Still a little lightheaded this morning, especially when I get up from lying down but also while walking - I did 60 as 1:1, felt normal while jogging but that slight mild maybe-vertigo feeling when walking. Would like to go to 3pm hot yoga today but will use discretion about that....
