Well, I never do this. I scrapped the wrap up I wrote last night and rewrote one bright and early this morning. What else was I supposed to do with my 2 hour delay? I was already wide awake and dressed for the gym. (At lest I wasn't at the gym!) My weekend wasn't that great, so my original wrap up had a lot of complaining. So instead, I shall give you the highlight and low light of each day.
Highlight- After 3 days without ice cream, I went shopping, and all is right in our house again.
Low light- We had a snow day. Now we have to make it up. Ugh! I just want to go back to work and get back in the swing of things!
Highlight- I finally got out my flash cards to study. I am embarrassed to tell you I have studied a total of ONE HOUR since Thanksgiving Break. Things just got super busy and stressful. But now that it's January, I really want to commit to buckling down and finishing up so I can take my test and officially become a certified personal trainer. I can take the test as soon as February or as late as July...
Low light- I worried about my knee. It's not getting better, even though I still do my PT exercises. I have an appointment with a new physical therapist on Wednesday. He specializes in gait analysis. My chiropractor set me up with him. When I saw my chiro last week, he did a lot of movement and flexibility tests on me, checked out my hip flexors and IT band... (remember my PT told me my tight hip flexors, tight IT band, and quad dominance are causing my knee pain?). My chiro concluded that my hip flexors and IT band are not even that tight- not enough to constitute my knee hurting since July. He thinks the only other option is that there is something wrong with my gait that I causing my knee pain. So off I go to get my gait analyzed... hopefully from a physical therapist that knows what they are talking about. I think this guy is my last hope for me running Boston on April 21st.
Me on the Boston Marathon finish line. There is where I want to be on April 21st!
Highlight- I relived my childhood by re-reading the Sweet Valley High Book called A Night To Remember. I remember loving these books when I was in middle school, but now, as an adult in my early 30s, I have realized the books are ridiculous!!! But oh so fun to read!!
Low light- I laid on the couch... A LOT. It wasn't a rest day. I did intervals on the arc trainer and lifted. Tuesday shall be my rest day. Winter break has really made me good at being lazy...
And there you have it! I hope you like this version of my wrap up. My other version was a downer. Hopefully this one is only half downer.
What was your favorite book series as a child?
Tell me a highlight and a low light from your weekend!
Did you ever have your gait analyzed? What should I expect?
