So, I'm feeling better-ish now. Saturday I took my dogs to
Today I went for a run with my friend Jules. It was butt-ass cold and foggy and damp, even more so on the run as it went along Fanno Creek. I was regretting not wearing my gloves. We started out at a really good pace and decided to go farther than originally planned; unfortunately my hip flexor then tightened up so that it felt like my hip bones were grinding together with every other step and I had to walk most of the route back. Must do more stretching. Jules wants to get to a solid 12 minute mile and I want to get back to where that is an easy pace for me; I think together we can easily do it. Definitely need to do more stretching before next Sunday's run!
It's back to work tomorrow although I'd really rather sleep. For at least a week. Really must go take those vitamins. Consensus on Facebook is that it is perfectly okay to wash those down with beer (in case you were wondering, as I was at the time).
I'll need to be extra healthy to meet my goal of doing one complete push up. I decided I should look up how to do a push up correctly; I wasn't sure where to put my hands (in terms of width apart) or where my elbows should be. I'll share the handy dandy video I found with you. The music is very exciting. Turns out I was pretty much doing it all correctly, except for my feet. I never noticed or realized that you want to be on the balls of your feet, not your toes. Once I get to actually trying them on the floor -- I'm doing incline push ups against my stairs to start -- I'll have to remember that.
My dog CBS is insisting it is time to get off the computer and do something, and now the other dog has seconded the motion. Welcome to the new followers! I haven't had a chance to check out your blogs, if you have one, but I will. Best case scenario, they will keep me awake :)
