Welcome to the Sensory Strides podcast. Observations of the world through activity, reading, listening, and everything else.
I can’t believe it has been six weeks since I recorded an episode! I have had a lot going on, but all just normal busyness, nothing special.
I was well into my training plan and things were going really good. Then last week I had a very sore back. I went to the chiropractor and I am feeling much better I think it was the worst my back has ever felt. I had to interrupt my training because I could barely move for a couple of days. What I realized is that my whole body was aching. I had noticed it before, but I just attributed it to the training plan and my focus on doing well. I think it is more than that. I haven’t run for almost two weeks now and my caves are still tight and sore. My glutes have finally loosened up a bit. I think I’m going to skip my race I had planned for the end of October. I’m sad because I love trail runs, but I need to listen to my body.
I am going to be super busy the next couple of weeks anyway. We finally got possession of our new home this past weekend after waiting seven months without a firm date in sight. I have been packing and moving what I can and we will move the big stuff after I come back from my vacation in a couple of weeks.
It is time for Craft Camp, something my mom and sister have been going to for years and I started going to about ten years ago. We are going to be making baskets this weekend. I am so excited!
Then I am home for one day and I get on a plane to head to Arizona for She Podcasts Live! I am even more excited about that! Jessica has planned it so that it is a combination retreat and conference. It is at a resort with multiple pools. I am so looking forward to it!
When I come back I think I am going to go back to my video workouts – I’ll have a great new space to workout in and perhaps I can focus more on the strength training and build my frame back up.
Thanks for joining me. Be sure to check our show notes for links to inspiration items and … don't forget to stop and smell the roses.
