Wednesday, Thursday

Wed.: 1hr with work segment as 6 x 1min mod/hard (fast legs), 2min easy.
Thurs.: 1hr as 1:1 (discombobulated due to Brent's sad departure!), did in the end make it to 9pm hot class which was SO HOT....

Hoping to be back on real regular schedule tomorrow. It was a worthwhile tradeoff but I am ready to dig in and get back on it now! Have this overdue essay on Samuel Johnson and history that is starting to come together, these things always take up more days than I optimistically imagine (I believe I actually need the thinking time? could be rationalization, could be truth....).

Sunday, Monday

Sunday: 1hr as 1:1, some PT/ball release.
Monday: 1hr as 1:1 (doing tomorrow's run today).

1hr as 1:1, still this ridiculously nice weather, and I have done 15 mins PT/ball release as well. No yoga today I think - day is for hanging around and being lazy with Brent!

Thursday was a rest day, just did PT/ball release and a bunch of walking. It is beautiful again today (60s and sunny!), did 1hr as 1:1 jog-walk in the morning and managed to get to 1pm hot yoga as well, which was very good. (And very hot!)

Tuesday, February 19, 2019


Monday was a rest day, did a lot of walking on misc. (only partially successful) errands and 15 mins PT and ball release. Tuesday: 1hr as 1:1 (we're going to have another week of that as a precaution - ugh, lungs still so full of glop, it is really too bad - I am done with meds now but it's probably going to take another week for the junk to dry up completely); hot hatha 90 (which was very hot but very good!).

I end this week much better than I began it! Still a lot of glop in lungs but the Mucomyst is clearing it somewhat and day by day I'm noticeably better. 1hr as 1:1 jog-walk not long after I got up, and then a very good (grotesquely hot! I was right next to the little humidifier, making a mental note NOT to do that again! by the time I got there 3-4 minutes before class started, all the good areas were claimed...) hot ying-yang yoga. Springlike weather and longer sunlight make everything easier....

Ah, this has been a good day. Still got junk in lungs, but woke up to realization that I really am noticeably better even than I was yesterday, that is cheering. Had a nice 1hr of 1:1 jog walk in a beautifully sunny Jardin de Luxembourgh (a treat that it was open, I thought I would have to go round the outer sidewalk), and got to the 90-minute hot hatha class midafternoon. Now I will shower and I think reading is the only thing on tap for the rest of the day....

1hr as 1:1, beautiful day. Will do PT later, tempted by thought of evening hot yoga but will see how drowned the lungs are feeling, may be better to wait another day. Need to figure out current work priorities and a plan for the next few weeks - I'm juggling a few different things, though I did clear one important task yesterday.

Very happy to get to 7pm hot ying yang class! I was snuffling too much and there's still WAY too much junk sliding around in lungs, I was coughing and hoped everyone else wasn't hating me, but the nice teacher said afterwards that coughing is good for recovering lungs and that the heat and humidity in the room are beneficial and should be taken advantage of.

Mon.-Wed. update

OK, this is better now. I took Monday totally off (the drugs were working already on the serious stuff but a sinus infection descended on me and made my face explode as it disseminated germs throughout my immediate environment). Tuesday did 1hr as 1:1 as I usually do, still feeling pretty sick; David then very sensibly changed all the rest of the week's runs to the same, so that was what I did this morning. Still not quite well enough for yoga, but I am counting on it for tomorrow evening - I do feel today as though I am no longer incredibly infections, and coughing more manageable too....

Tues.: 1hr as 1:1 and PT/ball release
Wed.: 1hr as 1:1

Sunday, February 10, 2019


1hr as 1:1 in the am. Faced the fact that I really need to see a doctor, saw the doctor, got prescriptions. Tomorrow is a rest day in any case - really it will probably take more days before I am actually feeling better....

Saturday, February 9, 2019


Friday: non-run day, did 1pm hot hatha class.

Saturday: good run in the morning, 1:20 with 20 as 1:1 and then 60 as 4:1, happy about that. Didn't eat in time for the 3pm hot class to seem wise (it really needs a three-hour digestive interval) so instead stopped by the office for a couple hours and then went to 5:15 90-minute yin on the way home.

Tuesday was travel back from London, overwhelming. Wednesday: 1:05 with work set as 6 x 4 as (1min faster, 3min easy) and 20 as 1:1 bookending. Didn't get to yoga but did do ball release and basic stretch in the evening at home. Thursday: 1hr as 1:1, beautiful day and things feeling better (except not lungs), and 90 minutes hot yin-yang, very happy to be back at it.

Sunday, Monday

Sun.: 90 bookended with 30 as 1:1 and work set as 6 x (1:30 fast legs, :30 walking recovery, 3:00 easy). Very nice (but back sore!). Did PT in pm before going out. Spent most of afternoon huddled in bed, that was a much needed break!

Mon.: 1hr as 1:1. Will have to leave PT for later as I have many Things To Do and it is making me anxious...

Friday, Saturday

Friday was nonstop frazzle from dawn till midnight, not kidding - nothing really was a disaster but everything was exhausting and a couple library things were snarled up (last straw was a problem with my locker that meant I had to hang around till after the reading rooms closed). Back did not benefit from having to carry heavy things in a plastic bag all day, including through Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms exhibit (which was horribly crowded and I was too grumpy and sore to properly enjoy); did emergency 15 mins of PT and ball release in early evening before going back out to the play which I DID get day tickets for - v uncomfortable sitting with sore back but glad I could get in!

Saturday: switched out the 2 weekend runs, just did 1hr as 1:1 today and will do the longer one tomorrow, still feeling pretty overwhelmed. Will do my 15 mins PT/ball release before heading back out to the BL for my first manuscript session (won't get the memoirs till Monday, but hoping to clear the other stuff this afternoon, and I THINK it includes the lock of hair....)
