Around noon, I headed over to the gym for a pilates session. The gardens in between my home and the gym were as beautiful as ever.
I continued to do it when I moved to Australia, but I did it less and less when I started working full-time. The last time I did it was right after I injured my leg, which would have been October. How did I stay away so long?
I left the gym this afternoon feeling incredibly limber and relaxed. Sitting hunched over a desk all day, five days a week, has really been taking a toll on my body. I also love the fact that it doesn't bother my leg. I actually think that it's good for my leg, because we do so much stretching (hence why I wanted to do yoga this morning).
The right leg pain is a whole other issue. It aches when I run months later, even though I rested it for over a month. I haven't been very responsible about using my Grid, so I'm going to attempt using it three times a day, stretching three times a day and doing yoga or pilates twice a week. I'd love to train for a half marathon, but I just can't do it unless I know that the injury won't get worse. These days, I won't run more than a 5K.
The Rest of Saturday
Monday is a public holiday, so I get two more days of the weekend. Yay!
