yoga 45:00 [1]

Yoga class, hard on the ribs.

Seems like I'm in for 4-6 weeks recuperation. Not so bad I can't do things, just annoying.

trail running 56:35 [3] 6.0 mi (9:26 / mi)

"13 hills" loop. Quite unexpectedly had company, Glenn Cafferty, normally a much better runner (2:40 marathoner) but suffering from hip problems, so he was happy to run at my pace. Nice time, chatting all the way, mostly about stuff he is working on, environmental economics. The time went by pretty quickly, managed to keep talking on all but a couple of uphills, and a PR without too much perceived effort. A little more progress.

And now I really need a nap, got about 3 hours of sleep last night, got to bed late after watching a bit of taped TV from Sunday, the Masters and Paris-Roubaix, and then woke up not too much later with the knife-in-the-back feeling that seems to come with rib jobs -- at some point it seems to start hurting more in the back than up front where I bounced off the rock. I guess the muscles are straining to protect things and are registering their objections.


Two other PRs in the last 24 hours -- a young woman, 20, struggling to find her way, who walked in with 12, count 'em, 12, w2s. Broke the record by at least 3. And add to that the fact that her income for the year was about 5K. Do the Republicans know that people like this exist?

And for another kid, a W2 for $7.50. Never seen one that small. One hour of work? And another W2 for $15. Two hours of work?

And lots of very weird clients.
