I did a slow quarter of a mile this morning just to see how it felt. Not bad but I knew it still wouldn't be fun to run on. I knew I shouldn't have, but sometimes I just can't help myself. No kids and perfect morning weather and I can't run. Feels like I am having to sit with my nose in the corner.
I was really hoping to do a half marathon in September but it isn't looking so good right now. UGH! I feel like I have been so frustrated with my running since I ran my first marathon July 8th. It has just been one thing after another
I went to physical therapy Thursday for my lateral hip pain which has been in a constant problem since sometime in March or April. Once I get warmed up it doesn't bother me, but it is the getting out of chairs after a hard run that does. After my first leg of Hood to Coast I could hardly walk every time I got out of the van.
I got some stretchy therapy bands and some excercises to do at home. My kids love to play with the bands so I am going to have to keep a careful eye on them so I don't lose them.

Rocky is now litter box trained and pooping and peeing all by herself! Still on the bottle. I am hoping she will figure out the eating thing soon, but it is kind of fun to sit and snuggle with her while she nurses on her bottle. She is also getting very fun and playful and will follow me around the house while I clean. I took her outside last night and she thought the bigger cat looked like a fun play buddy until Tip boxed her ears. Life has hard lessons sometimes!
|Cola didn't want to be left out of the picture, it is hard to get a picture of a small cat that doesn't want to hold still!|
My son reported last night that he is getting chased around at recess by a first grade girl and she is putting rocks down his shirt. I told him that girls chase boys when they like them. He thought that was pretty cool. Camry is a friend of his older cousins and he really likes her. I asked if he put rocks down her shirt and he said "Yeah, that is where we have a problem, I don't want to go to the principals office" Too cute!
