Acupuncture, 24 Miles Biked and 8 Miles Run

Here’s what I look like when I’m 40 pounds lighter and 10 years younger:


I intend to be back at that weight in the next year or so.

I’m still healing my left calf, which has had severely cramped muscles and tight tendons and also my right hip, which I threw out of place by not allowing my calf to heal 😦 so the last week was mostly biking and concluded with an 8 mile trail run in Escondido. The run was rough on me and I still have some healing to do, but the run was gorgeous.

I had acupuncture last Friday. This was my first time. It was amazing! I won’t go into the details, but suffice it to say I went in barely able to walk up stairs and left skipping (figuratively). While I still struggled with some pain, I could never have done the run on Saturday without the acupuncture. My neighbor is the acupuncturist and was kind enough to treat me for free, yay! She’s also completing her PhD in Eastern Medicine and was very knowledgeable across a range of disciplines including exercise physiology. Acupuncture == Awesome.
