I wish I could run in the dark august morning, before most of the world is awake, before most of my co-workers are awake too. I heard on the radio this morning while riding to work from the pool that there are meteor showers in the mornings. Two years ago in August the same thing was taking place and I saw so many shooting stars while running in the early mornings. I remember one distinct time I went to the track with my mom and she walked while I ran. We must have seen 20 shooting stars - it was a great way to start the day! I am really going to miss seeing that this year.
Today and Monday I went swimming and managed to swim over 1000 yards each day which is a distance PR. Monday swimming really drained me and by 3pm I was so tired I just wanted to fall asleep. I had to get up and get a snack just to make it through the rest of the day. Working 40 hours in 4 days (10 hour days from 7am to 530pm) is really getting tough with this morning swimming but at least I get to exercise. Anyway - I am slowly building up my endurance. Only one more week of this because I think the pool I go to is closed the last week of August. I am hoping that I can start running again with the start of September (Fingers crossed!)
Nothing else is really new in my life - Weekends have been filled to the brim with a family reunion, a wedding, and catching up with old friends!
Oh one last thing - so in my second year of college I had terrible back pain while training for basketball. The trainers at school thought it was because my hamstrings were too tight (mainly on my right side). Well I went to the state fair with the fam and there was had a free chiropractic evaluation and I decided that I would try it. Well they told me that my right hip was slightly higher (or maybe it was lower? cant remember now) than my left hip - moral of the story my hips are not at the same level. I bet a lot of people have this but maybe it never ever causes any problems. It just clicked in my head the other day about this because all my injuries have been on my right side (hip flexor, knee, etc). So maybe my hips are to blame? But what can I really do about it?
Happy Wednesday and Happy Running!!
