Sat./Sun.

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....

Friday

1hr as 1:1. Terrible sleep again (11-3, then completely awake until 7:30 before I had a little bit more dozing), it seems unlikely that I will want to go to full-on Bikram yoga at 5, but you never know....

Back therapy yoga!

Becca points out that when I write "yoga therapy: dos" she thinks it's "do's and don'ts"....

Great hour-long lunchtime class, that is a treat!

Wednesday

1hr as 1:1, very nice. Need to get a move on, it's another late start! May go to yoga later, not sure - not a priority - but must do PT before too much longer...

Monday-Tuesday update

Monday: non-run day, did 1.5hr back therapy yoga in the evening and it was GLORIOUS - amazing long savasana at the end to absorb everything, I really love this teacher and her approach.

Tuesday: started the day with 1hr 1:1 jog-walk, will do PT after I have eaten and showered. Shooting for 5pm hot hatha 90 but don't feel locked in on that if I don't feel like it.

Sunday

V nice run along the Seine, went "out" for my whole hour and found my way home without undue stress on public transit. All good. 1hr as 1:1 jog-walk.

Catch-up

Logging in too many places....

Friday: 1hr as 1:1, plus 1hr hot yoga
Saturday: 1hr as 1:1, will do PT in a bit, undecided re: later yoga

Yoga!

Yoga "back therapy" class, it is really good. Plus a fair bit of walking (knocked important task off the list in the am: seeing a French doctor in order to get my prescriptions rewritten so that I can fill them here).

Wed.

1hr as 1:1, very nice. Haven't yet done PT. Thinking about letting my schedule just fall where it naturally wants to instead of trying to force early rising - the case against is that if I could get up 8:15, run 8:30-9:30, eat breakfast, go to office it would be a pretty sane schedule that would please me. But really I should do PT after the post-run shower, and I don't if I'm antsy about getting in - also it's tight to have have digested before a 1pm hot yoga class. And then again I could get to the office at noon and then leave for a 5pm yoga class which would be directly on my way home! Obviously there is not REALLY a need for a highly systematized schedule, but I do like it when I have one that works....

Tues.

Slept mostly through the night, hard to get up (vivid cinematic melatonin dreams!), very nice 1hr as 1:1 jog-walk (the weather continues to be shockingly beautiful). Have breakfasted, need to shower and get myself out the door, it's almost 11. Envious of people who can easily get up early - jet lag is particular cause just now but in general I find it really hard to get up before 9 when there are no hard external prompts....

Yoga!

Brilliant hot hatha 90-minute class. That is too long and too hot, I need acclimation, and some of the postures are too hard/borderline impossible, but it is always appropriate to modify. Happy to be back at it - felt amazing sense of calm as I walked in the door! Had a couple hours at the office first (did get continuous sleep 11:30pm-6:30am) but it is going to be very tempting to go back to bed after I shower....

Fri.-Sun.

Friday: jet-lag related writeoff, nothing beyond normal walking (and I couldn't even make myself do PT)
Saturday: got sleep in 2 shifts, nice 1hr as 1:1 jog-walk, PT, didn't make it to yoga but walked to the big grocery store and did bigger shopping, which was probably the wiser use of that time slot anyway
Sunday: got sleep in 2 shifts (but gosh, being awake from 3-8am is unpleasant - not terrible on a weekend because you can effectively go back to sleep, but not good for coming weekdays)

Gonna shower and do PT, uncertain about yoga now as I can't do the 3pm I'd hoped to (not long enough digestive interval). I think I probably should be patient and wait till tomorrow, which is not a run day - if I wear yoga clothes under work clothes and get to the office at 9:30 or so, I could then sneak out (still on an empty stomach) for Dominique's 11am hot hatha 90, come home to shower and change, then back to the office by 1:30 or so. That sounds reasonable to me...

Thursday

OK, Wednesday was just regular walking (not a special exercise one) and PT at the office, which is not optimal (jeans incompatible with full stretching!). Napped in afternoon, jet lag is hard to shake, feeling a little overwhelmed with minor details of settling in. Today was better partly because I basically just admitted that if I wanted "run" and yoga I might not make it to the office at all (we had been given a "free day" although unfortunately my clean set of yoga clothes was in my office, as I'd hoped to use them yesterday and didn't feel like ferrying them home again).

1hr as 1:1 jog-walk
1hr "yoga therapie: dos"! Which was GREAT, and I feel much more grounded now that I've paid for a three-month membership and gotten over the hump of start-up

Fuller update!

Friday: 1hr walk early, PT

Saturday: 1hr as 1:1 jog-walk early, PT, then to the airport for mega-transit

Sunday: arrived in Paris lunchtime, managed to stay up, went for about 1.25hr walk with my landlord who showed me around the neighborhood, did the crucial 75% of PT

Monday: 1hr as 1:1 in Luxembourg Gardens, which are literally five minutes away; PT at end of day (yoga turned out not to be realistic, I hadn't eaten sufficiently)

Today: 30 as 1:1. PT will have to wait till later, I need to get a move on to get ready to go with my landlord to arrange apartment insurance.

Gruesome jet lag last night, I thought it might be OK (up at reasonable hour, no naps, exercise, human contact, tiring new experiences) but I couldn't get to sleep till after 3am, and feel pretty awful right now! A shower will help I expect, and some food and caffeine. Sciatica in R leg still rather sore....

Update

Not sure what happened to logging this week! (But I write it in my training log and then also update at a secret PT group on Facebook, so perhaps not surprising....)

Tuesday: 1hr early as 1:1 jog-walk + PT, session #11 with Errol at the gym
Wednesday: 2 x :15 walk to 1hr hot yoga! Most of PT done late afternoon
Thursday: 1hr early as 1:1 jog-walk + PT, session #12 with Errol

Our final session was glorious: a "real" full-body workout with non-trivial weights, a lot of things I couldn't have done without significant back pain a month ago. Woo-hoo!
