This week is the first full week of classes for the new session for me. Two classes Monday evening, a lovely, cool and sun shiny 12 kilometre walk on Tuesday morning, and two classes Tuesday evening brought pain to my apparently not as in shape as I thought body by Wednesday am.
Once before, about 2 years ago, after sitting in a mini-van for a drive to and from Toronto for a family event, I experienced sciatica. Caused by many different possible actions, but I am guessing that time it was caused by the extended sitting, it actually took over a month to really go away.
So, here I am again, with the same symptoms wreaking havoc and preventing me from adequately torturing my students last night – but they were all doing really well even if I could only poke and prod at them for certain moves!
I am supposed to be on the couch or in bed, as last night’s sleep did help immensely. And I am sure that the exercise I did get in class helped too. I’ll get there very shortly, but I felt like sharing.
Take care of yourselves, get plenty of varied exercise, but don’t push so hard that you hurt yourself!
That’s my advice for today.
