After a week + off of running, I am back at it. Everything seems to be fine and no worse for wear. Unfortunately, I think we have hit rock bottom with my low back, which has been a problem since I started back swimming last October. I am at a point where I can no longer really swim anymore, and practice has become too painful to continue. I am going to see some spine specialists next week, as it is more than likely some sort of disc issue. Yuck and yuck. This is just all part of taking care of the aging, athlete body. Good thing I am going to a seminar next month for geriatric therapeutic exercises for the spine.
I wondered if it was show-n-tell day at school, because Isla left the house a race medal around her neck and a toy keyboard and graduation tassel in her hands. This kid is something else. She is just this combination of amazing and mischievous. Probably the coolest thing going on right now is that I can have conversations with her and give her multiple step directions, and she gets it. Oh, and as of today, she is now an official library card holder. It was so cool to read our books before bedtime tonight, and to know they came from the library. Nerd alert!Here are a few links to keep you connected this week. :)
