That's a horrible title for this post but I couldn't think of anything better.
On the non-running front, I was told by PT yesterday that I should take another week off. Actually, he said "I recommend you take at least a week off of running. I know you don't want to listen because runners never listen." Then he turned his back and I may or may not have given him the finger.
Okay, really I didn't give him the finger, but it's what he said next that really made me want to throw my frozen-water-bottle-foot-massager at him:
"Remember what happened last time you didn't listen...you were in a cast for 6 weeks?? And couldn't run AT ALL?? For 6 whole weeks?? Remember that??"
Why do people have to be so mean-spirited all the time???
I guess I'll listen, only because he totally jinxed me with that last line...stupid phyiscal therapy programs.
At any rate, I really didn't get as down as I'm making it sound. And that's only because one hour before PT I was getting my training on with Rick - Trainer Extradonaire. And he made me do this sitting up, pushing really really heavy weights over my head thing, and, well it sort of sucked but I try to smile while I'm there so that I look tougher than I really am, and I'm sitting there thinking: "is the fact that I can't pick this weight up at all, but you want me to lift it over my head, going to be a problem?" And then it happened.
I SAW THEM!!
BRAND NEW MUSCLES!!
Somewhere in my the general vicinity of my tricep, or it could have been my bicep...who knows...but HOLY COW they looked GREAT! Both of them! And I got this big smirk on my face and really just wanted to drop the weights on the floor so that I could show Rick the other muscles I discovered the other day. But I finished the set with grace (yeah, that's me) and then started screaming like a teenager who just saw those Jonas Brother guys:
"Look Rick! Look it's real live muscles!!!"
And then I proceeded to show him the other one that I found while I was blogging. I had to click something with the mouse, and at the same had an itch right between my right shoulder and shoulder blade, and when I went to scratch it, I almost fainted.
I screamed and made Troy come over and feel it.
So, you see, I was really excited when I discovered TWO MORE during training!
It will just be a matter of time before those folks at Women's Health come knocking on my door...I'm just sure of it.
Have a great Thursday.
