State Track Meet

Today was quite an experience!!

I got to the track and went to the trainers area. I got a heating pad thingie and put it on my hip. I really like heating up my hip because it makes it feel soooo good! After I put heat on it, I feel like I can run and jump!

The trainer then wraped my hip up REALLY tight. I couldn't tell if I was having pain in my hip beacuse of my hip flexor or because of the warp jobie!

I ended up throwing a seasons best in shot put of 10.15 meters (Translated to feet that is 33 feet 3.75 inches) and got 12 place of 18.

The 4x400m relay ran without me today (Alison ran in my place and she did great). They ran a 4:10.48 which is the exact qualifying for the regional meet next weekend. I am sad that I can't run - especially since a lot of the athletes did very well and are going on to compete next weekend.

Overall the hip felt pretty good - after throwing I had to immediatly remove the warp thingie because it was so tight it was cutting off the circulation in my other hip and therefore I was going numb! My hip felt tired later on in the afternoon but tonight I have had no pain. I feel like my brain thinks there is pain in my hip when there really is not! Its like pseudo pain!!

Tomorrow I am headed to Florida with B-Rabbit and his family for Spring Break! I have a hard time packing! I am always worried that I will get down there and not have something that I need!! I don't know how much I will post but Ill be keeping up with the blogs as much as I can.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend! I can't beleive that tomorrow is March 1st!!!
