Today, I’m taking a leaf out of Candy Fit’s book, and stopping to take stock of the bigger picture.
You see, last week was
fucking awful not as pleasant as it could have been. After such a high on Sunday, I spent the next few days in a fog. I felt sick and headachey, and it just dragged on. I did mention it to Mr Magic Man, the chiro, when I saw him on Wednesday. After a little sarcastic ‘and where was my text to tell me about this?’, he got stuck into my shoulders and – voila – pain and sickness gone!
So I was overjoyed and went out to a very fancy dinner (happy graduation to Mr The Rake’s sister!) in the world’s best mood.
Flash forward 8 hours, and I was slumped over a bucket.
In the interests of irrational finger pointing, I’ll blame the chiro. Mostly because he’ll fight back. (And clearly everyone throws up after acupuncture and a knee adjustment).
The week was a bit of a write off.
This was meant to be a shiny happy post. My bad.
The point is, even though it was crap, I really don’t mind. For one thing, now that the week has been a steaming pile of poo, I fully expect the next few weeks to be full of rainbows (I’m sure there’s something eloquent to be said about the lows making the highs, but I’ll leave that to the experts).
More than that, awesome things happened. We got to celebrate Jen’s graduation in style, my body had some down time to recover after Sunday, and yesterday I hit the hills.
In fact, I felt so good I pulled a double and managed a one hour elliptical session later that afternoon. DOMS. That is all.
I arrived home today to find a package addressed to me.
2XU, just for funsies, delivered a completely unexpected parcel -
With new compression tights, a bag, Oakley Radars and a whole stack of other goodies, I feel like a small child diving into a ball pit.
The moral of the story is have a bad week, and be rewarded with free stuff.
That’s how life works. Right?
A huge good luck to Abby at Back at Square 0, who is running her second marathon today. She’s had a really rough time during her training, and got really sick a couple of days ago. She’s still running!
Duh – free stuff!
