"Engaging in a little suffering — however self-imposed, arbitrary and contrived — before breakfast each morning tends to demand some humility and injects some marked relief into the rest of the day, making things sharper, more inspired, more immediately aware of the powerful presence of being. And that seems really worthwhile." A. Krupicka

hurt my back a couple of days ago, not even sure what happened but yesterday it was really bad and spasms - today i tried to get out for a run but the second i started jogging my whole core would tighten up and the spasm would come back. so i guess i'll try again in a week.

took last week off for an intense period at work i wanted to focus on. was going to start up again yesterday but a few days ago i developed a severe piriformis/nerve pain in my right leg. made it hard to stand up from sitting or getting out of bed etc. it’s a pretty sharp pain but i notice that once i’m up and moving around for awhile it starts feeling significantly better. decided to try a run today and it was fine.

2 miles - treadmill - very easy pace - i guess i'm officially in rehab mode now for this priformis issue. after two weeks it's still almost as painful so i'm doing a lot of stretches everyday and i'll run easy when i feel up to it. today i walked a 1/4 mile, ran 2 miles, then walked another mile at a quick pace.

3 miles on the treadmill - walked for a 1/4 mile, ran 3 miles, walked for 3/4 mile. piriformis "injury" is very slowly improving (it's been 4 weeks). i'm just grateful that i can run on it. i'm hoping that by keeping these runs short and easy with some big breaks inbetween things will strengthen and heal over time.

2 miles - snowbasin/sardine peak - slushy packed trail made "running" difficult - covered 2.5 miles round trip but ima logging 2 miles. hoping the unstable footing is good therapy for my piriformis situation.
