Recovery Day 4/First Successful Living Seminar

Well, I said I was going to run the next morning in my last post, and I didn’t. I ran this morning instead. We just opened New Self Renewal Center in our building, which is a gym, cafĂ© and spa with great childcare that caters primarily to moms. Happily, employees get free memberships, so I hopped on one of the treadmills, which is the nicest I’ve ever had my flat feet on.

I ran two miles (1.9, actually) and my calf started hurting, so I went right to cool down. The last thing I need to do is keep aggravating that injury. I think it’s time to lay off the running and do some cross-training. I don’t know if biking will activate it as well–I’d think it would. I’ll give it a shot. It’s about time I did some upper body work anyway. (Why is it that all the stuff I love to do builds legs?) I should also get an appointment at Sports Medicine and see how they can help me.


Tonight was the first night of the Successful Living Seminar series, which Karen and I led at New Self. There were about a dozen people there, and it was great fun. We had some great discussion–very thought provoking. It was the first time we taught this course in a 1.5-hour format–it normally last 2.5 or 3 hours. While I don’t always enjoy that kind of compression, given that it’s a free introductory course, I didn’t want to make it too long for people.

Shameless plug: if you are interested in taking part in the upcoming sessions, please do sign up!

I had a sad phone call on the way home, and I’m feeling a bit sad right now. I hope I can help.

Anyway, it’s time for bed.
