Generally, I’m holding up pretty well.
It’s amazing to me how much our minds affect our bodies and our lives. It seems like whatever my end date is for a show or a project – my body holds on really well until the end.
Only then do I crumble. But, I’m always smart enough to wait for the end date.
I didn’t really crumble per se, but I did do about a week of pretty much nothing at all. I was tired, man!
I did have some adjustments at the chiropractor to help put me back together again after such a crazy year. (Huge shoutout to Dr. Levon (possibly the most fun chiropractor on Los Angeles – check him out)!)
I don’t know that I’m a huge chiropractor person. (I still have yet to have any super strong feelings for or against chiropractic care. I feel like America’s attitude is ti be skeptical of it, though, from my experience, I think it’s real and pretty cool.) But I know that he made me feel way, way better after I was a little stiff/sore/crumpled up from all the racing (and not enough yoga – yeah, I’ll admit it).
(You should’ve heard my back on that first visit – crack, crack, crack, cr – cr – cr- craaaaaaaaack (so loud!).)
I am back to running again, a little. This year, I’d like to actually train – the right way. Build back up, work on speed. As I’ve said before, the same distance every week is not optimal. So, running is still a part of my life. But, I’m starting with less mileage than I did last year, and I’ll work up.
I still make sure to get walks in everyday. I’m going to start on some weight training and yoga.
So, basically, my body is good. I feel good. Things are good.
And it’ll continue to get even better!
