I am one of those people who stayed up until midnight every day to watch the Olympics on TV. I would cheat and look at the results online during the day and STILL stay up way too late.
This might just be my favorite moment of the games:
I am so happy for this gal: Allyson Felix
Perseverance should be her middle name. After 2 silver medals in that event at the Olympics....third time WAS the charm!
I am so over this guy:
Yes, he is a GREAT athlete. No doubt. But he is in serious need of a mega dose of HUMILITY. His interview last night on NBC gave me nausea.
I feel bad for this guy:
The Greatest Olympian (For me there's no question about that, it is him. The end.)
I am happy that he did end up having great Olympic Games and that he closed the book on high note. One of a kind for sure.
Thursday I ran 3 miles in no pain. I kept waiting for the pain in the groin to show up and it did not. Now it was just 3 miles and it was not very fast but it was pain free. HOPE.
I had my 4th PT session Friday. It was hard, 3 days later I am still sore.
My PT said I could try running 4-5 miles this weekend and that Tuesday we would talk about how that went and evaluate the situation again. He said the idea was to run at no pain and slowly increase the distance. So for now it was 3 miles and we would see if I can run longer without pain.
Yesterday I did just 3 and today I went for 5.
Well those 5 were not pain free. I am a little discouraged by this. I hoped it would be but right after mile 4 I started feeling the pain. It is not sharp but it is there. So for the next few days I will stay at 3-4 and see how that goes.
I bought one of these (got it on sale 50% off!) :
I have been using it at the PT for core work and other exercises and I want to be able to do it at home once the PT sessions are over.
Do you have one of these ball? What is your favorite exercise?
