As far as I am aware, I have never touched my toes in my life. So it was quite a shock to me when I managed it (albeit on the ground) on Sunday. Tonight we have documented evidence. I'm still about 2 1/2" away standing up so I hope that my current regimen will make that happen too one of these days. Speaking of fitness, tomorrow morning I'm headed to the running clinic to have my gait analyzed. I don't know what to expect yet except they will video me running and watch in slo-mo for any inefficiencies. The clinic is run by Sharp Medical Group and I was referred there by my physical therapist. I hope they will find something I can correct which will help me to run farther. We'll see. From the slightly-more-definitive department... I ran 4 miles on Saturday. I can say with some certainty that I had less discomfort than 2 weeks before when I ran the same distance. So perhaps this strength/flexibility torture I've been enduring is doing some good. Aside from being able to tickle my own feet obviously. I found out recently that my company wants to produce some content for the Kindle. They're going to let me borrow one when I go to San Fran in a couple of weeks so I'm pretty excited about that. I love the idea of the Kindle but the DRM and high rate of change in the category keep me from buying one. Tonight we tried a new dish, Chicken and Cashews. Easy and tasty - we'll call it a winner. My sister went to college in Springfield, Missouri. This town claims that they invented the "Chinese" dish Cashew Chicken. Driving down the main streets there, you'll find Cashew Chicken places every other block - many of them named simply "Cashew Chicken." Odd. After tonight I figure I can head over there and open a place if programming doesn't work out. Options are good. We'll finish with the superficial. I lost the photo I take in when I get my hair cut. So last time I did not get what I was looking for. How about this for next time? Let me know in the comments. Check back tomorrow for listgirl's account of my running clinic visit.
