It seems as if there is lots of "stuff" to fit in each day right now, leaving me feeling frazzled. I have all my own recovery stuff - icing my shoulder, doing my exercises, going to doctor's appointments, and having physical therapy sessions. In addition, our Duo still needs my attention.
Although I am not at my usual speed, Shyla is a young and healthy dog who needs to burn off lots of energy every day even though I can't snowbike with her. In the morning, we've been heading out onto the trails together, with both of us on foot. I'd love to put a GPS tracker on her to find out how many more miles she covers than I do! I'm definitely lagging these days.
After our morning walk, I hop on my exercise bike, keeping my legs and heart strong for when I can ride a real bike again. It also keeps back spasms at bay - I've never found a better muscle relaxant for my back than pedaling a bike.
This evening, although my shoulder was aching from a rigorous physical therapy session in the afternoon, I needed to walk the Duo. It's especially critical for R, who needs multiple walks per day as he rehabs from his elbow surgery. We saw the mountains during that walk. I'll never tire of the view.
that post makes me laugh at my ridiculous expectation that I'd have extra time on my hands.
