I woke up early this morning to fit in my run before heading down South. The original plan was to swim today but since I have a concerto to perform later, I decided it would be best to save my arms. I was way overdressed- but I always prefer taking off layers to being cold. The morning was crisp and beautiful. I love seeing which new trees are in bloom every time I run. This is the first time in over a week that my back didn’t ache at all when first starting. I assumed all week that it was hurting from such heavy coughing… aches and pains always tend to go immediately into the weakest part of my body and that has been my back for the past several months. Anyway, no aches and pains at all this morning and I kept a good, constant pace the whole time. I’ve got oatmeal on the stove as I type and have half an hour to shower, eat and get out of the house. I’m hoping to have a bit of time between rehearsal and my performance with the San Francisco Sinfonietta this afternoon to do my yoga.
