I’ve been home for a couple months and have been enjoying the routine.

I bike to work 2-3 times a week. It’s only 4 miles each way but with all the stoplights it’s a sprint / interval workout. Now that I’m used to the buses and trains and cars I really enjoy the trip.

I’ve been swimming in the Bay every week or so. And that had resulted in getting my body back into the pool too. Because it is no fun getting fatigued when you are in open water and the only way to shore is to swim.

I’m only getting in one run a week and that one workout has been reduced to a slow 2 miles. Something going on with my left hip, knee and shin.

Now Voyager is doing ok. He kind of moves the same way I run. Slow, a little awkward. Some days are better than others.

Zinger is a happy cat. Sleeping and eating and the occasional snuggle.

I am going to add yoga to my routine and see if that helps with the soreness.

The other benefit to being around is spending time with friends and family. It’s been such a treat to catch up with people in person. FB and email is all well and good for keeping lightly connected but nothing beats looking into the eyes of another and really listening to their stories.

A few pics from the summer…
















  1. I enjoyed swimming with you, Kathleen. Swimming in the cool bay is really great for sore muscles. I second you on the yoga or some kind of strength training. It noticed helps alot. The process of strength training will make you more sore though, LOL.
