    Back story- I have horrible posture... and my hips appear to be a bit uneven. A couple of months ago, I twisted funny and had some pain. I made an appointment with a chiropractor. By the time I went I was not having pain, but was curious about having better posture. My chiropractor said I was incredibly tight. He was not able to adjust my mid back. I was not a fan of the cupping or dry needling... and really was not sure it helped. I think our bodies want to revert back to what is normal, so his adjusting may have made me feel uncomfortable when I was not sitting properly. It is possible that in order to have good posture, I may have to experience tightness until my body reaches a new normal. I just don't have the resources/energy for that now. I am not keen on having to be adjusted weekly, once a month, etc. The PT gave me lots of exercises. I did not make stretching/doing the exercises a habit, so some of the tightness is my not following recommendations. Hoping to get into a routine with exercise/stretching soon!

    My chiropractor is often rated #1 in my area... which means he is busy. The PT works with me (i.e cupping, dry needling, massage, exercise) and gets me warmed up for the adjustment...but then my sitting entails me getting cold and difficult to adjust. I have spent close to $1000 going to him/PT. The hours there and not being able to schedule clients is just too much. If my pain comes back, I may try acupuncture.

    When I originally did C25K, I was 25 and weighed 40lbs less than I do now. I think I got to the 20 minute week okay but not sure I ever hit the 30 minute run. And 30 minutes was NOT a 5K at ALL! I think my first 5K was like 42 minutes. It is very unrealistic! And takes a lot of commitment

    Thanks for the pep talk Erin. I needed that! I like to read too but don’t take enough time to do it as much as I wish.
