slightly sore. kept it nice and relaxed.

- stretch

left shoulder still quite sore and tender. there's a big bruise, as well, about the size of a deck of cards but oval shaped. and upper traps are stiff and sore now. did much more mobilization and self-massage throughout the day than normal.

went to new doc today. aside from being incredibly slow, it was fine. he had a couple suggestions about my headaches. the first was that they could be related to my elevated blood pressure. he told me that in the last 15 years or so the recommended ceiling for health bp has gone down steadily, to the point where i'm over it now. so i need to reconsider getting a stent put in (the issue is in one of my kidneys) or going on medication. strong preference for the former, i think.

the other thing was just to say that the headaches are probably muscular and so i need to be doing more stretching and movement throughout the day. that's not new but it gave me a little kick in the pants. i think i'll start doing some meditating as well. it's been 20 years since i meditated regularly but never too late to start again.

exercise taking a back seat this week. doing some push ups and BSS and a few pull ups on my aunt's old swing set but that's about it. did go for a nice ~30 minute walk with my mom this evening.

- run 47:52, 10.1 km
eh. humid. once i get back in a rhythm i need to excise these 4:40-4:50 runs. they're easy but not quite slow enough to be really relaxing, and too slow to be quality work.

- stretch

Man your house/land is GOALS. I would absolutely love to have something like that one day.

yeah i was just talking with my best friend last night about the idea of buying a place together with his wife and another friend. we live in really expensive places (SF, DC) so this would be a kind of shared retreat situation somewhere cheaper and more beautiful. seems more realistic than buying homes where we live and i love the idea of (1) owning some land in common with close friends and (2) having a place that i know i can go back to year after year that's in a beautiful setting far away from crowds.
