O Frabjous Day! Calloo, Callay!
Good one today.
For anyone who has glanced through my journal, you may know that I’ve been walking quite a bit since early June. I started walking at that time, and then on 24 June, my vitality and fitness custom IMBUE Terminus arrived and that really infused the walk with purpose and energy. So, it’s been a great 4 months of walking.
But I used to run and jog. One of the reasons that I’ve been walking has been that somehow coincident with this COVID period, I found that I had a painful and long-lasting Achilles tendinitis. I discovered it after I tried to venture back out after a few months of quarantine. It was just too painful and it seemed like running would make it worse. So, I gave up on it. Eventually, the intuition came to try walking. That turned out to be sustainable and beautiful, and so I fell in love with walking. Used to go out 2 -3 times a week. By August that was 3-4 times a week. And by October it was 7 days a week, unless there was rain. shortest walk is 6 miles, longest is 10 miles. Powered by IMBUETM.
Well, tonight, I went out for my walk. and at some point, I started to feel a little drizzle. When I was about 2 miles from home, the drizzle strengthened a little bit, so I put on a hat and jogged for a bit. It was funny how quickly I tired from the jog, but I also sort of noticed that my Achilles didn’t hurt anywhere near as much as it did a couple of months ago.
I walked for a bit more and then jogged for maybe another 2 or 300 meters. Then walked again, then jogged again. When I got back home, I took a detour to the park next door. It has a 500 meter jogging/walking track. I decided to try to do a very light jog for one lap. And…
I did it! It was great. Negligible pain. My first 500 meter run since god knows when.
So, for anyone who is interested:
This result is after 4 months with my IMBUE Terminus custom. It contains Serum X, Epigenetics and DNA Modulator (and Inexhaustible, though I guess that’ll have a lot more to do). It’s also after 1 month with my DUAT Terminus2 custom which has Asclepius. Just remembered that.
I only use both of those customs Situationally or Occasionally. Meaning that each custom is associated with a particular activity that feeds the subliminal. Whenever I do a workout for more than an hour, I play a loop of IMBUE. And DUAT, I play 2 to 3 times per week in a pre-bedtime meditation session. I don’t play them unless I’m doing the associated activity.
This was a nice development! I’m grateful. I understand that healing and growth follow a wave pattern. So a slight peak may be followed by a compensatory dip. I’m okay with that. I can sense that the overall trend is in the direction of healing.
