Back to Work

I wouldn't mind staying home for another day or two.  But I can go back to work today feeling refreshed.  It was good that I took 4 days off.  It took until about 6 o'clock last night to get around to doing the things that were on my list of things to do all weekend.  And I got them done.  

Yesterday I ran 6 miles.  They didn't feel great.  I didn't get the joy I used to get from running.  And when I got home, I spent the afternoon in bed.  I could barely walk.  This sciatica is really messing with me.  It is extremely painful.  I don't have physical therapy until this Friday.  

I have a race to run in 24 days.  I still have hope that I can get a half-marathon out of this body, but it is not a sure thing - at all.  I still have a trip to Alaska to look forward to - whether I can run the race or not.  But I sure wanted to run that marathon.  then half-marathon.  

My daughter called last night from rehab.  She sounds like the woman I know and love.  Happy.  Cheerful.  Funny.  Intelligent.  A far cry from where she was just a week or so ago.  I wish they could keep her for a year.  

Well, I think I will get out there amongst 'em and do the best I can with what I have got today.   You do the same, OK?

I am on my way out, too. Don't tell Pam you accomplished everything on your list.

Good news about your daughter.
