Welcome to a sunshine-y Saturday morning!
We came home from a full day of basketball yesterday [4 games for these boys…whoa], to a full evening of baseball, the last regular season game of the summer; our tournament starts today.
The boys pulled off a come from behind WIN to get the victory with a score of 10-9!!!! We won with a walk off home run! It was an awesome evening for our boys who finished the regular season with a record of 7-1. The end of the season tournament starts today, so we’ll see how far we can take this thing!
I had a HOT HOT HUMID run outside this morning, 79*. Oy, it was sticky. My fingers are slightly sticking to the keyboard as I type this. Gross I know. But I figure I’m not rushing out to take a shower just yet, because I’ll be sitting at the baseball game in an hour and a half so it kinda defeats the purpose. I’ll just wait until I get back home…if I can stand it.
A little slower than my 5-miler earlier in the week, but it was almost 20* warmer, too. So not too bad. My quad muscle feels ok when I run…not great, but ok. I’m hoping that as I am taking days off in between, not doing as much as usual, that it will gradually get better. I can definitely see progress in that direction so I’m crossing my fingers.
Lately I have been doing some checking into getting my Personal Trainer’s Certification. I would really like to have it, then go further and be certified as a Cancer Exercise Specialist. My only hang-up is, THEN WHAT?? We live in a VERY rural area and it’s not like I can go to a gym and get a job (because there isn’t one), so I am just kind of lost. This is something I would love to do; to work with cancer patients and survivors to empower them to change their lives and their bodies…to get moving and feel better despite the cards we’ve been dealt.
So…we shall see…like I said, I’m kind of lost about it.
Ok, I’m off to think about something easier…like my boys’ baseball games. THEN my 15-year high school class reunion is tonight! That just seems impossible that I’ve been out of school that long. Crazy.
Stay cool, friends!
