I managed to acquire some balls which I could rub my ass on. It hurts like a mo-fo when I do it, but I know it’s good for me so I keep on grinding against them.
Er....let me rephrase that.
My butt and hamstring pain is almost gone now thanks to the help of tennis ball therapy. Thank you all for suggesting it. I feel much better now. Although if it comes back, Dr. Nic has kindly offered to rub it out for me should I find myself in the Wisconsin area. Dude, your wife is totally going to meat punch you for that. Crossing my fingers that someone catches this event on video. :)
Since I’m feeling better I finally got in Baby Tempo run #3 last night. This time around I didn’t run it like a bat out of hell. Instead I made sure I was pushing myself and breathing harder but not to the point where I felt like I was going to lose a lung. I ended up running 1.4 miles in 13:14 which equates to a 9:27 pace. Huzzah! I am super happy with this and hope next week’s tempo distance of 1.8 miles goes just as smoothly.
Tomorrow is my big sister’s birthday. Happy birthday, Z! Instead of writing a sappy post about this, I’ll just direct you to the one I wrote for her last year. See, I’m recycling. This is good.
What most of you don’t know though is that tomorrow is also my half birthday. Happy half birthday to me! Where are my presents, biotches? Actually I’d murder someone for a York Peppermint Pattie right about now. I dreamed of them last night for some strange reason and now I’m craving one. Not surprisingly they don’t sell them in this country. Bah.
All right, folks, time for me to get back to my extra long day of work. The only bright spot for me is late this evening when I meet up with friends at the pub. I can’t wait.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
