I've cut way back on work hours and I have to say it's nice to have free time!  I'm going to a yoga fundraiser this morning, although I have the feeling that no one is going to go because they didn't publicize it.  The parkour gym has funny ways sometimes.  I had the best classes last night--first parkour then silks. I was able to keep up w/ the young guys at parkour. I'll never get the high jumps they do but that's okay.  And silks is feeling really good right now.  It was tough when I came back to it after ski season but now I'm feeling much stronger and getting my body on it (as it, when I'm upside down, which way is up, how to follow directions being given to me).  I need a good yoga class to stretch me out!

Yes, parkour, silks, yoga at the same place. It's actually not called yoga, it's called flexitime but the instructor is a yoga instructor and has done 1000 hours of training.  They do anything "alternative" so they have an urban fit class, which is better than crossfit, breakdancing, free running/tricking. adult gymnastics. The problem for me, other than the crowd being almost all under 35, is that there aren't classes in the morning. But, apparently that crowd doesn't get up before then. This is the gym:

Sounds like you're enjoying retirement!  So much nicer sitting around a pool than in an office.

Gymrat, that sounds so frustrating about your test results. The medical system I belong to posts test results online - but I don't know if the ordering doctor signs off before I can see them. Jean, you do Parkour, silks and yoga at the same place? What else do they offer? Karla, I hope the antiperspirant trick works for you - I wear shoes only when I have to, and my feet are pretty tough...but I am not running like you are! We had two lovely days in a row and I sat at the pool both days...hope turning those pages burned calories. I did 11 minutes on bike, lifting for legs, abs, swam 60 laps.

Ugh. This is one reason people pay so much for the concierge medicine program I work for.  One stop medicine is wonderful--tooo bad there are so many elitist things wrong with it.

LOL, and knowing it was for you, I made it really hard.  If you want a light recovery workout, let me know. But I think a good brisk walk and some stretching can't be beat.

Sadly, no.  I was there for my allergy injections and argued with the nurse.  Blah, blah, blah.  Very frustrated.  I explained that I had a doctor appointment and of course, they're wiling to release it to them.  I didn't want to do that because it's a brand new doctor and there are just too many possibilities for failure.  But, it looks like that's my next course.  Morons.

Jean I typically do a light recovery jog on the day after a long run and I wasn't really thinking about how difficult that workout was until I got into it. Next time I do it will be the day after a rest day. lol

And I am hoping the antiperspirant works for me!

I have heard that w/ antiperspirant. I also get really sweaty feet, like 15 miles later mine are sloshing. Let me know if it works! I'm finished w/ long distance running, though.

Feel free to cut the circuit!  I think I only got through three in class.  I can't imagine doing that the day after a long run (note, though, the day after a long run should be at most active recovery!).

Anything further on the doctor front?

Gym-that would be very frustrating to know they have the results but haven't looked at them yet. Can you be the squeaky wheel and just keep pestering? Maybe if you explain that you are seeing the endo tomorrow they might speed things up. 

I got a few tips from the podiatrist on my blister problems. Every summer whether walking or running, my feet stay chewed up with blisters. I've tried every sock and shoe combo plus tape, bandaids and every thing else known to womankind and still have problems. The doctor thinks excessive sweaty feet may be the problem and suggested I use antiperspirant on my feet to try to cut down on the excessive moisture. I had never even heard of that before so I am going to give it a try. If this turns out to solve my issue then I am going to smack myself for never having asked for help with this before now. 

Jean, by the time I got to circuit 4 I could feel Sunday's long run and was barely moving. I'm sure my form was horrid and anyone watching probably thought I had no idea what I was doing. lol

Total rest day for me today.

No, we cannot assume that.  The frustrating thing that I made my endo appointment thinking I'd have plenty of time to get the results so I can take them to the appointment tomorrow.  I have to go to the allergist today for my shot and I'm going to insist that they give me my results while I'm there.  

I'm really of two minds with my client.  On one hand, I think it's a good thing for me to have two very different types of work to do.  I also enjoy her (usually).  The side of it is that I don't want to deal with scheduling with her anymore.  I already do so much scheduling for my myriad of doctors appointments... more scheduling = yuck.
