Today I ran about 35 minutes of my 4.2 mile workout. I run on an incline — today’s was only at a 3, but I usually do it at 6 and as high as 10 for minute long intervals — so the effort is slightly increased. The idea is to build strength and to also be less intimidated by hills on the race course.
At the suggestion of my trainer, I also took a couple warm yoga classes. I really need a lot of work on my flexibility (my opinion — I used to be a ballet dancer many moons ago and I am way away from anything resembling that level of limber) and my balance is mediocre. The warm yoga did wonders for my IT band and cramped calf muscles, though. Definitely going to keep yoga in my routine.
Tomorrow is ass-kick Wednesday, as I like to call my PT sessions.
Yesterday a parent showed up at my son’s school with a gun. The whole shebang showed up on the evening news. Apparently some dad was ticked over a fender bender with another parent. He alleges he came to the school to “find out more about the other parent” involved. Sounds like a tall tale to me.
My son said he and his buddies saw the ends if the SWAT team’s guns poking up in the window before they saw it was police enforcement. He says it was a little disconcerting because they’d been told it was only a drill.
All ended ok, with the dumbass gun-toting parent arrested. I’d like to smack the guy around a few rounds. I was thinking some martial arts might be a good addition to my workout. Maybe his public service can be to serve as a punching bag for self-defense classes.
