It seems trite to even apologize for my long absence at this point as it's become the norm around here. Suffice it to say that all the distractions I've spoken of before- yoga, work, etc are still at the fore front and thus I'm just not much of a blogger nowadays. While I sometimes experience guilt thinking of all of you amazing folks out there who are posting all the time and the fact that I'm not visiting you regularly I have to own the fact that my mind simply isn't there nowadays. We all have closeness and distance, periods of hyperactivity and lulls. I'm in a lull so far as blogging goes but I know someday that will change. Until then, a few small words from me to serve as an update and a wish that all of you are doing well and will forgive my absence when I do return to more activity.
Running- I went for my first run since the accident this past Wednesday and I'm pretty confident that I am fully and officially healed. It was just a mile around my neighborhood but it felt amazing and two days later I'm still pain free with no signs of swelling or residual issues. Of course I'm already chomping at the bit to try to ramp up my distance again since there may still be a chance for me to do the October half marathon I signed up for earlier in the year but I've promised way too many people to take it slow to not go one mile at a time. Either way, I am so incredibly grateful to be well again and to anyone who sent prayers/healing thoughts and positive energy my way I am eternally grateful to you!
Yoga- It's sort of hard for me to express in words how life-altering this training is for me. A lot of the concepts I'm studying and attempting to implement on a daily basis are ineffable. Suffice it to say that I'm thinking differently. I'm feeling differently. I'm reacting differently. I'm seeing things differently. My entire world view, concept of myself, understanding of life, the universe and everything is changing. And it is awe-inspiringly wonderful. At some point I will write- probably quite a lot- about this for anyone who is interested. For now, just know that this is where my energy is (which is why it's not here) and that that is a really, really good thing.
Thanks for stopping by, reading, and being the awesome folks you all are!
