1) I got asked to join another relay team!
I've run Hood to Coast several times, but I've only done a handful of other relays. I'm so excited to do this - my friends ran it last year and said it was awesome.
2) I went to the Podiatrist on Tuesday. We looked at my orthotics and think maybe they are giving me too much support. When I first went and he gave me temporary supports my foot felt great, but my foot started hurting again with these custom made orthotics. He popped off the heel support on them, and they feel much better. Hopefully this will get me back on track. Since I've signed up for two relays now I better actually start being able to run! I ran this morning and my foot felt good.
3) My mom's 70th birthday party that we threw last weekend was a big hit. We wanted to give her a personal gift, so my sister painted this awesome picture of my parent's house that we had framed. I don't have a photo of it framed, but here is the print -
4) I've been doing some strength work lately to try to get back into fighting shape...and also because my jeans are starting to get tight (hate that!) It's really crazy how much weaker my left leg (the one with the injured foot) is than my right is. I am CLEARLY compensating for my injury on my other side....which is probably why my hammy/glute on that side is consistantly sore. Sigh...it just never ends. So, upping the attention on my weak side to get things evened out.
5) The Biggest Loser...
It was nice that the contestants were off the ranch and away from each other because we didn't have to deal with Conda and her bitchiness with the other contestants. In the end, I did feel bad for Chism for two reasons: 1) he has to live with the name Chism (seriously - is that even a name?), and 2) he was clearly heartbroken about going home (missed his goal by just 1 pound!). But I do think he acted pretty mature about the whole thing. I wish Conda wouldn't have made her goal and she had been shipped out, but hopefully that day is coming soon.
Next week it looks like the teams switch trainers again and everyone is freaking out - so I'm sure more drama is in store. Bob will probably be thrilled because he's losing Conda after only having to deal with her for two weeks, and Dolvett is probably cursing the powers that be. I really can't stand Conda...I'm just reiterating that in case I hadn't made that abundantly clear already...
Have a great weekend! Head on over to Fitness, Health and Happiness for Fitness Friday!
