Back home

Florida was really nice but now I am back home and back to school. I ran a few times in Florida and my hip felt good! The track team went to regionals on March 6th and 7th and ran the 4x400m relay and actually broke the school record!! I am so happy for them but a part of me is sad because I wanted to be a part of that and break the record.

My birthday in Florida was amazing, we went to this restaurant where they made the food right in front of me! I also got sushi for an appetizer and let me tell you I just love sushi!! Thanks for all the birthday wishes!!

We went to the beach and just lounged the whole week but it was perfect. I got a little tan but you can't even tell because I have such a light completion already!!

I went to the trainers today for a "check up" and they said that I need to continue my rehab exercises but increase the reps to work on endurance of my hip flexor muscles. I can run now and today I started doing some sprints. I just sprinted on the curves and jogged curves (my sprints were accerlerations into 70% of top speed). It felt ok - my hip just flet tight, no real pain just weird. Its hard to explain.

Anyway, sorry for the long absense - I woke up with a cold last Wednesday morning and still have it! It was weird being on the beach and blowing my nose!!

Birthday Dinner with B-Rabbit

Sushi for my Birthday!!

On the Beach!!

Thats about it from me for now! No real team practices this week so I am just nursing the hip and getting back into running!!

*Notice B-Rabbit now has a shaved head - he went to states for swimming and did great!! He does look so different without hair though!!
