Then fell asleep somewhere towards 6 a.m. and woke bright eyed and bushy-tailed at 9:15. This would be a neat trick if I could rely on it, but it only works if I don't actually *have* to be up for anything. Be sure that if I'd had work today, even in the late afternoon, I'd have been a zombie.
As it is, I went for two walks in the lovely gold sunshine. Walking is the best exercise for the damnable piriformis, says the webpage, aside from the stretches I do so often and so uselessly. I shall hope that today's limping about has had some good effect.
