I’m going to work late this morning because I was wide awake for about four hours in the middle of the night. I finally slipped into a most unwelcome lucid dream state where I was running from someone at around 4am. I climbed back out of that dream world fifteen minutes ago and feeling as if I’d been doing wind sprints all night.

I’m icing my knee and dreading the drive and amazed by how much my arms hurt from the impact. I should have forced myself to take another walk this morning, but I’m straight up exhausted.

I guess I need to postpone starting the barre class I found down near my job. I’m planning to go twice a week after work before commuting home, but I think it’s going to be a little bit before I’m going to be able to plié without bone-crunching pain. 

Dammit.
