Is this a… what day is this? ~ The Dude

How time flies when you are sitting on your ass waiting for your friggin’ leg to heal. I haven’t done a damned thing since Sunday and it is making me a little cranky. On top of that, I have been at least a day off all week.

The shin got some extra love today with a visit to Shirley, a taping instructional from Mark and my first venture to a chiropractor. Good times. Needless to say, after 38+ years of abuse, I am a little tweaked but Dr. Boynton at North Boulder Chiropractic seems to be throwing the good mojo at me. He assessed my tweaked spine, did some stress tests, cracked my back a little then used this mini jackhammer gizmo on me for a bit. So far, so good. I immediately regained some strength in my legs and somehow felt taller after the whole ordeal (which, frankly, wasn’t really much of an ordeal at all). I go back on Monday to get re-tested and to get some more alignment done if need be.

So I’m off the feet, working like a crazy person, jonesing to run and see The Simpsons Movie, and plan to get on the bike tomorrow to get back in the swing of training. Should be good. I’ll run a little next week if the good doctor says that is cool. Roughly three weeks to go.

Often times, we seem to only see the full task of what lies ahead and that can be quite overwhelming. “Why even start?” one may ask. Look for the small victories, the tiny differences we can make that, as individual pieces of the puzzle mean little but are quite powerful as a collective whole. If we do what we can, make small sacrifices or changes to our lifestyles, we can make a difference. And by making a difference, we can influence others to do the same. And so on.

Today was spent at COHRS cleaning rabbit cages. I had plans to get out for a run or ski but just didn’t have it in me today. Good to take some rest when you feel the need.

Tomorrow, we are hoping to get out for some backcountry sking. Will see if that plan comes to fruition but mark your calendar for a Tuesday evening Singlespeed ride. Should be ready to roll by 4:30 or so.

How will you make a difference today?
