Have you ever had a day when all you want to do is procrastinate?
That was my day on Tuesday. I could not focus on one thing to save the life of me. It started while I was in yoga class. Balancing poses? Forget about it. Even tree pose had me falling over.
In the afternoon, I tried to sit down to write something meaningful for today’s post but I hated it all. Or I got distracted by social media. Nothing sounded right. Rather than make you suffer reading a post that doesn’t make any sense, I’m just going to spout off on what’s been going on lately.
Lately…I decided I needed to see a massage therapist regularly. With all my calf tightness issues and getting back into running, I need to keep a handle on it. I’m foam rolling and using The Stick but I want someone to dig in deep. I found an awesome LMT. She’s a serious runner. Serious as in she ran from San Francisco to New York (unsupported), raising money for The Brain Injury Association of America. Oh and she’s the second woman in history to cross the continental USA solo and self supported. Like I said, she’s serious. If you are local, call her. She’s awesome.
Lately…I’m wondering if my hypermobility is the root of some of my injuries? THIS article and THIS article kind of points in that direction or at least it contributes to it. There’s a test in the first post to see if you are in fact hypermobile. Let’s just say that I aced the test. Yay me.
Lately…I’m looking at finding a strength trainer. Last year that was one of my goals but the one that I saw initially turned out to be not what I had hoped. When the first words out of his mouth are “I don’t like runners”, you know it’s not going to work out.
Lately…I’ve re-introduced speed workouts to my routine. I’m kind of shocked how good they feel. Well, not good but good in that I can keep up with the paces that I’m aiming for. I did THIS workout yesterday and it kicked my butt. In the nicest way possible of course. Working my confidence up one workout at a time!
Lately…Speaking of goals. My yoga teacher opened up class yesterday with a reminder about goals. Do you do a weekly goal check in? We set goals but how often do we look at our progress? I’m guilty of that for sure. That’s why I love my Believe Journal. It reminds me to do a weekly Rundown of how the week was.
Lately…I recently lost 10 hours of my life watching “Making a Murderer.” It was eye opening. It made me question the legal system. It made me wonder how some people’s minds work (or don’t). It made me realize that there are some really, really unintelligent people out there.
Lately…I don’t care much for real pants.
Lately…I went back in time. My new duck boots (pictured above) are almost exactly the same as a pair I had when I was 8. I don’t know if I should feel cool wearing the boots or really, really old. I’m going with cool.
Thanks for letting me do some Thinking Out Loud!
What’s going on lately with you?
