Last night I ran 9 minutes straight without walking. That is right, I used the word ran. I was NOT a turtle yesterday.
I finally found a route nearby without a major hill every other block. This greatly improved my speed and energy.
Needless to say I am PUMPED.
Ok, well…I was tired and I’m ready for summer break, but who is counting days?
I purchased these guys to help me with my soreness.
I feel a little duped on the massage ball. It is like a glorified hacky sack. I won’t lie, it felt pretty good when the guy at Fleet Feet showed me how to massage my bum to prevent sciatica and other problems…I didn’t tell him about my granny hips. Apparently this company is out of Austin! GO TEXAN!
UPDATE: A MAN DID NOT PHYSICALLY MASSAGE MY BUM…he massaged his own (You pretty much are just sitting on the hacky sack on your cheek and then doing stretches from there to help that muscle area). Not that I am inexperienced with strange men touching my bum.
Speaking of pain in the
ass neck, we are on the downhill slope of state testing. Two more weeks, and this drill sergeant can go back to being her normal self (and possibly blogging daily?!?).
OK, so I have 10 minutes to do my hair and makeup and NOT be late to school.
