Regionals

Good Achilles day, I have gotten in about 30min or so everyday this week.

I am about to go ride the bike for an hour and read another Michael Crichton

The team is headed to regionals this weekend, the story is available here:

The girls just lost their number three due to transfer so they will be having a rough weekend. The men should be fine.

Up to about 30 min of jogging a day now. I am so sick of the pool, I would rather just gain some weight and take my 30min of running than have to do another pool session. So far I think I will have no trouble getting back into the swing of things, I just keep having set backs.

I was really down this week because my Husband seemed to have confinced me that I may have a small tear in my achilles. I did not want to be out any longer than I already have been ( I sat out 7 months last year) but I had my monthly visit to My chiropractor, Dr. Leach, and he seems to think he can fix it. So before I go get another MRI, I am going to let him have a shot at it.

I mean, two 20 dollar sessions would be alot cheaper than two doctors visits and an MRI, dont you think.
I guess we will see. I mean, it is improving, just very very slowly.

Winter



I got a run in today (not much of one, a 30/30/30 day, 30min pool run, 30min bike, 30 min jog). I cannot believe how warm it is here in the winter time. My mother sent me a text tomorrow, supposably she got her first snow fall this year, a week or so later than usual. The first snow fall in northern alberta is something I do miss about home, but I love being able to run sans t-shirt in december...sometimes.

SEC's was this past weekend, the men did pretty well seeing as we are really in a building process this year. We also had a few people fall apart, it happens. Scrib ran an excellent race, as shows from the results.

Girma ended up winning the whole thing. I could have predicted that when Houston was recruiting him last year. That kid is a machine, literally.
