This week has been insanely hectic and busy. I started off thinking that this week was just going to be a normal low key week and in one day everything turned upside down and I was working long hours. On top of that I have tried to keep up with my cross training. It has not been easy and I can't wait until the weekend!
Even with the busy schedule, Thursday turned out to be a great day! It was a day of many firsts!
First, I joined my running buddy for Total Body Conditioning (TBC) class this morning at the gym. She has been trying to get me to go for months and I have always been too afraid, tired or busy running to go to the class. This week I finally went and it was intense! We started off easy with some basic warmup of aerobics which I failed miserably at. When everyone was stepping left, I stepped right. When everyone was jumping up, I was not. Just seemed like I was out of sync - guess I never would have survived in an 80s aerobics class. Eventually we got into the workout which was tough - a lot of lower body exerciese. I know I am going to be sore tomorrow.
Second, I went to my first ART (active release therapy) appointment today. A friend suggested I go today because of the knee pain I have been feeling. I was slightly skeptical because the doctor was a chiropractor but gave it a chance - what was the worst that could happen? The first part of the appointment was going over my history and explaining about my hip flexor strain in college and my knee pain last year. Then he worked on my quad, medial hamstring and psoras. Surprisingly I feel a lot better after the appointment and I am hoping to feel ever better tomorrow.
And Third, It snowed today! First real snowfall of the season! Guess this means I really have to get out all my cold weather running gear.
Happy (basically) Friday!!
