Enjoying wine and touching my toes again.

me
On the personal front, my physical shape seems to be getting better. I noticed recently that liquor no longer tastes bad to me. I was able to go out on a wine tasting/club pickup and enjoyed wine from every stop but one, and that one had been on my probably-should-drop list for a while now, so that's not a surprise.

I played an hour and a half of pickup hockey / passing / practice shots the other day without having to stop and wait for the pain to withdraw. Nova thinks that my focus on the game enables me to block out the pain, but it's still a significant improvement.

And I can touch my toes again. It's not that I'd grown too fat, but that sciatica had made it intensely painful. I can now touch both feet with my hands at the same time with straight knees without pain... that is SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER than I've been for so long that the batteries in my race bikes have expired from non-use in that time (e.g. at least two years)

So I am seeing improvement. Now if I can just find a way to walk a whole kilometer...

I'm really glad to hear that you're feeling better. Pain eats you alive.
