OUCH!!!

Having the acupuncture needles inserted, was a breeze... having the licensed Doctor "stimulate" the nerves by twisting the needle was incredibly uncomfortable... I must have HUGE QI issues... confirmed by pulse, tongue, etc.  I apparently have issues with the way that Qi moves in my body, which is reflected in my kidneys, liver, and spleen... which then manifests itself in the aches, pains, allergies, etc.

So... I have herbs to "dry me out", and I will be seeing him again when I get back in town next week Friday... as I am off to CA from Friday-Friday.

Fantastic day, today, in spite of having almost totally lost my voice - thanks, allergies!

I spent the morning with Nanc and Tanner, roadtripping to find bike routes, wearing an animal finger puppets on my hand and singing old McDonald (hmmm, might have been when I lost my voice), and then dancing with the little guy to "cotton eye joe".

Then, Bob & Rita came over to yak, see my soon-to-be new house, and window shop at The Tile Shop.

Topping off the evening was a hot bath, and quality time with The Chels.

Tomorrow I join Dawn to do the "Running with the Pigs" 5k, and then, since the weather is to be good, we are going to hit the roads on our bikes!

Elliptirun
Worked on keeping my RPM in the low 70s.

Thank goodness that we did not get nailed with the snow, as forecast! I have a 5k on Sunday, and also want to do some outdoor biking... I want dry roads/trails for this!

I have felt like such a slug - the wintry weather, allergies, travel, etc. have certainly added to this.  And, lack of consistent exercise fits into the mix, as well.  SO, over lunch today, I hauled my booty over to the gym to get in some "running" time.  I feel much better now... much less of a slug.  I am now savoring my juice concoction... mmm
