Here I go again...

Ok. Time to get serious. My chiro today gave me the go ahead to run in the 8K tomorrow, so *tick* that one can come off my 'to do' list. One goal down! Hopefully I'll be ready. I've only run once in the past almost two weeks, and though it was a great run, I still don't think everything will be smooth sailing. We'll see. Will write about it on Sunday.
But, while I was recovering from this back injury, I have to say that I got a little slack in other areas as well. I tried to eat well, but it didn't always happen (it is summer time people!, and summer = ice cream and margaritas. but not together. eww). I didn't work on other ST exercises as I didn't want to aggravate the back muscles and therefore I jumped out of the 100-push up challenge (my guns WILL be bigger than yours Nicholas!! LOL). And in doing so, I put the weight back on that I lost, and then some. AARRGGGHHHHH!!! So, now I have to start over from scratch. Though it won't be too hard - I've already got the strength, now its just a matter of getting back into the routine. And I got a new digital scale yesterday, so now there is no cheating on where the needle actually might be on the dial! :) And there is those two 10Ks that are coming up in the next couple of months to get ready for.... no sense in stopping now!
