the brain-ankle connection

Today was the third yoga class I've attended in as many days -- I have to modify a few poses (i.e., I do bridge instead of floor bow, and use the barre for all one-legged balancing poses) but I'm SO HAPPY to be back in class. And I think it's been helping to strengthen my ankle and improve circulation etc. But best of all, I'm not feeling quite so depressed. I really need exercise just to function in a moderately intelligent way. Tomorrow morning I'll try some dog walks (my GF has been patiently doing double duty the past week). It'll be a while before I can stand on my toes or lift heavy weights, but I'm making progress.

maybe eventually I'll even come up with a real topic for a blog post.
