How I'm Doing So Far

An NSV to finish up the month

Since I started working out at the wellness centre I've been mortified that i've been physically unable to grab my foot from behind to stretch my quads. I hate hate hate that i always have to have my trainer 'give me a leg up' so to speak. I've been determined to do it myself.
and today i did it! well only with my left leg. but i did it. felt kinda pathetic to be so excited about it, but as terrell (trainer) said, it shows progress.
spent much of my torture training session today with terrell (who's a physiotherapist) doing deep tissue massage on my left knee. when he had me doing lunges i was getting a sharp pain in the muscle running along the upper inside. ouch. he worked it out. we figure the pain was from saturday morning's insanely rough boatride to the exuma cays for the start of the kayak for cancer event. it was BAM! BAM! BAM! for an hour and a half. ouch!!! the next day i was so sore i wondered if i'd actually done the kayaking!
btw - i'm super proud of my dad. he and his partner finished the 32 mile course in about 9.5 hours. to call it grueling is not doing what they accomplished justice. best part is my dad alone has raised more than $8,500  in sponsorships for the local cancer society. so proud!
ok ladies. send lotsa positive vibes that i get the right answer from the insurance company... should hear from them by monday.
