Feelin' groovy

Remember that song? I don't remember all the lyrics (and I suspect that is a good thing), but the feelin' groovy part definitely describes life as of late.

As many of you know, my director at work went on a six-month sabbatical to Australia. He's back now and yesterday was his first day in at the office. Suddenly, the entire universe (well, maybe just my professional universe, as it were) feels like it has shifted back into its natural happy peacefulness.

We chatted. We worked. We joked. We re-capped. We planned. And that was all in less than an hour or so when we met.

Sarah is one happy camper now. Yaaay!

In other news, I started a new training program today. Two words: bitchin' hard! It is seriously challenging and has also helped me to identify some muscle imbalances that I was not aware of before. I have a feeling that I am going to be very, very sore tomorrow.

Hopefully, the yoga class tonight will help get me stretched out.

And the plantar fasciitis is slowly starting to subside. I noticed this morning when I woke up that my heel did NOT hurt. I iced it anyway... just in case.

And this weekend, I volunteer at the Calgary marathon! Can't wait for that!

So, as the song goes...
"Life, I love you,

All is groo-oo-vay."

59th Street Bridge Song. And glad you're feelin groovy.

It's way past time something good happened for you.

I should just get out my cd. I'll be humming to myself the rest of the night and Simon & Garfunkel sound better.

Great to meet you at the expo yesterday, Sarah. I had a bout of PF a couple of years ago and still do exercises to keep it at bay. Changing my running form slightly really helped, too. Glad you're getting a handle on your recovery there.

THANKS SO MUCH for signing up to be a course marhsal for tomorrow. Whether I see you on the course or not, I really appreciate you volunteering.
