This is the first day of my second series of a “week-in-the-life.”
Monday, October 17, 2011
Went to bed around midnight – not a great start to the week. One of our children woke at 2 a.m. from bad dreams, so we snuggled until 3:45 a.m. (when I was certain that I could leave the room). Got back to sleep around 4 a.m. Alarm went off at 6 a.m. Could not budge but finally was able wake up enough to do some stretches in bed:
- both knees to chest
- single leg hip flexor stretch, alternating legs
- very slow bicycle legs up to ceiling under duvet for resistance and balance.
