Get Back

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

The physio really got his elbow into me. And I feel so much better for it.
He has also strapped my lower back ahead of a training ride tomorrow - fingers crossed that I goes OK. He said he would call me on Thursday to see how the ride goes. Now that is good service!
He has instructed me to do some hip flexor stretches . . . and see him again on Monday.
A couple more treatments, and some more strapping before the race (next Saturday) . . . and I hope to get through OK.

Reluctantly I had to take my 3 y.o daughter to the appointment. In some ways I think it is good for kids to have to wait around for their parents sometimes (we do enough running after them - and they need to cope with not being entertained ALL the time). . . but she is only 3, and I was worried that she might detract from the session. Anyway - I took coloured pencils & paper and some grapes in a tub to provide distraction . . . but she sat quietly, and then fell asleep on the floor! Flat out on the carpet! Oh to be 3 years old again!!

    Ha that is great (about your daughter falling asleep). I too drag my kids everywhere. Others probably think I am a wierdy but that is just how it is.
    Well keep with the doctor recommendations and get yourself ready. You have a big race to run!

    Sounds like you are being well looked after, excellent. Children will do the opposite, you think they need to be entertained and they fall asleep, such is life

    Glad that you had a good session with the physio

    I quite agree with you about the kids having to learn to fit in with parents - I had 3 and no family here to step in and take over. In ones or twos, or as a group, they had to adapt and I am sure it has turned them into the great independent adults that they are today. If it wasn't appropriate for them to be in the Doc's office, then they had to behave themselves in the waiting room. There were consequences if they didn't, so they rarely made any problems.
