Geo~Ah, gotcha, I misunderstood the sighting. The swim coach I took lessons from told me to keep my body and head straight in line, looking down at the bottom of the pool. Then, when I breathe, my whole body pivots to the side, so it's pretty much straight to the side, not up or down at all. Does that make any sense? And yeah, could be ITB. Lots of good advice on that already. Could also be the lateral collateral ligament (LCL). Not as commonly injured as its friend the MCL, but still could definitely be causing problems, especially from a soccer injury and ligaments take quite a while to heal. If that *is* the case, you may think about a knee sleeve to see if it helps...it won't give you a ton of stability if you want to go out and play soccer, but for general linear activities like running, it might help.
eks~I can speak from experience that even if YOU fall over, the trailer won't move.
Especially when you're moving slowly/stopping. Side note: my friend Sonja FLIPPED her Chariot a couple of years ago (going to fast on a curve, realized too late and wiped out) and her DD was A-OK! Those things are built right!
nemesis~Ouch! Don't forget to ice and elevate it!
I have just submitted the last discussion response for my online class!
Now all I have to do is write a lame 1000 word paper, and I'm DONE with it. Forever!
We FINALLY got our first papers back (that we turned in nearly a month ago), and I got a 96, so I have a 96 for the class with two of the four major grades done. In other words, I can afford to not do super-fantastic on the last paper, and I'll still do fine for the class.
It's been a long, but nice day. Track this morning, then a bike ride with a friend, then out to lunch with a friend I used to work with but haven't seen in months. I'm NOT looking forward to the fact that I have to leave an hour and a half earlier than usual tomorrow for school so I can go to a review session for patho, but I really need to do well on the remaining tests, so what are ya gonna do? I AM looking forward to going for a 5 mile run with my new RPs after our class and then sticking around campus for a couple of hours to study/work on my lame paper. Hey, XH has to pay almost all of the babysitter bill, so I might as well take advantage, right?
rr~Track. Humid. (Shut up, it was humid by CO standards!
) 1600 strong, 400 recovery, 6 x 200 hard with 200 recoveries. My mile was not particularly strong, but my 200's were pretty good. I got faster on each one, ending up with a :48 200. Which is really not fast, but not bad for me! Then bike ride, approx. 15 miles with a couple of decent hills thrown in. And then W5D2 of 100 push-ups/200 sit-ups. Wherein those sneaky little buggers snuck in 3 extra sets! All of a sudden, instead of the normal 5 sets, the first three sets had to be repeated. That's not fair! I did do a total of 100 push-ups today, though, and 25 in a row, which I'm pretty proud of. My guns are smokin'!
