Mayhem Monday: Pass the Coffee

And here we are at Monday again. The weekend went by waaaaaaaaay too fast! I feel like I *just* sat down to relax for the weekend only to realize I need to get my arse to the office to start the work week.

Last week I managed to squeeze in some yoga on Tuesday. My leg has really been bugging me but this felt really good for it. There are some positions that I still struggle with (looking at you pigeon pose…right. at. you.) but for the most part, I’m really feeling the progression. Love the yoga. Need to do more of it.

Wednesday I saw my chiro again for my leg and we had another long chat trying to figure out why I can’t seem to get over this hump. She decided to try and do a Graston treatment on my knee, as per usual and then added in some work on my calf. Yowza!! That was some seriously ouch factor. I was so sore after but within a couple of days, I felt like I had so much more mobility in and around the joint. I was also given the task that no one wants to be forced to do: foam roll. Quads, calves, hams and (gulp) IT band. Oh my word there has been a sharp increase in profanity in this house since Wednesday. BUT it’s also been helping. Or at least it feels like it’s helping keep things loose. I don’t want to get my hopes up but I’m hoping that we’re starting to uncover the root of my problem so I can start rebuilding.

It must be Monday. I have coffee on the brain.

Saturday was hubby’s work Christmas party. Admittedly not my favorite night of the year but I know it means a lot to hubby that we go. Thankfully, it’s a huge event so I’m sure no one would have noticed that I wore the exact same outfit as last year. I guess that’s the downside to only owning one dress :) It ended up being a good night out but man, I was pooped.

This week, I’m hoping to get to Yoga twice and swimming on Saturday. This last week I absolutely got my rear handed to me in speed work. I thought my lungs were going to burst. I thought speed work in running was tough!

Have a great week!

  1. Sounds like you have some serious progress going on with your injury. My foam roller and I have a love/hate relationship and if we were on Facebook together it would “Be Complicated”.

    One of the perks of staying at home is not having to go to the office parties this time of year. After years of wearing heels on a daily basis I can barely go 3 hours in them now before I kick them off.
