He wanted to go to the Aquarium so that's what we did!
The weather has been terrible the last couple of days, lots of rain and cool.
Here we are at the Quebec Aquarium. In the back are the 2 bridges, The one closer to us is The Quebec Bridge. The bridge opened in 1919. Constructions started in 1904 but the bridge collapsed twice before it opened. "Construction was ultimately completed in August 1917, at a total cost of $25 million and 89 bridgeworkers' lives. On December 3, 1919, the Quebec Bridge opened for rail traffic, after almost two decades of construction. Its centre span of 549 metres (1800 ft) remains the longest cantilevered bridge span in the world and is considered a major engineering feat."
Last night we went to dinner with a group of gals I coached 14 yrs ago when they were in High School. They were the best team I ever had. I call them the "dream team". We won everything that year including the Provincial Championship. I had not seen them in 10 years and now most of them are moms! They are now the age I was when I was their coach! We had a blast at that dinner, I am so happy I got to see them.
First I want to appologize, I am behind on blog reading...I will catch up tomorrow!
I ran 4 miles yesterday. It went OK. Still feel the pain at each step.
In the afternoon I was lucky to get an appointment with the best PT for runners in Quebec.
His name is Blaise Dubois. You can find his website The Running Clinic here.
He was great. I got an evaluation and the diagnostic is: adductor tendinopathy.
He told me that I have to:
- 1. Reduce my mileage. Already done that.
- 2. Walk 1 min every mile. I can do that.
- 3. No need to reduce the number of days per week that I go running. I like that.
- 4. No HILLS. Fine by me.
- 5. Need to do some exercice using resistance tube. All good.
I am just happy he did not say those words : "No running"!
He is a pro minimalist so I am expecting him to talk to me about my current shoes :)
