I’ve had two subsequent visits to the chiropractor since my initial visit and I’ve been pushed, pulled and twisted in more ways than I thought possible! After all that, it’s a wonder I can still walk when I leave there, but ohhhh it hurts so good.
Yes! I went to the chiropractor! Quite unintentionally planned I’ll admit, but it is something I’ve been pondering over the last couple of weeks.

In spite of last week’s treadmill running and actually doing pretty well at it–10 miles total–this week was really. really. bad.
