Where do the days go???

Well I know you will all have missed my glorious post last night.  But I have a confession to make…..I was in bed by 7:30pm! haha  I couldn’t sleep the night before, still being awake at 3:15am, before my alarm went at 6:15 to get up.  Not a good mix!

It shows how far I’ve come in just over a week though, because I still managed to get myself up and do a run….go me!! 🙂 So that was 10 days in a row of getting out runs.

The day wasn’t very exciting though, I cycled too and from uni, and finished my presentation slides for my Thursday presentation……and I yawned a lot! ha

Today was day off running day, as had to let the body recover a bit.  I still cycled to and from Uni though, as I had my dissertation interim presentation to do.  It went alright, but according to someone else in the group listening, they thought it was pretty good…..so I have to be pleased with that. 🙂

I came home sharp, as I had my physio appointment today.  Good and bad news…..everything going well….excceeeepppppttttt, my left glute has gone backward from how it was at the last visit.  The main problem before was it isn’t firing, which activates the muscle, and sadly it has gone back to that state, even though I’ve been doing my exercises.  This means that all the effort being done is through the hamstring, which will just cause over use of the opposite side again if it doesn’t get going.  So I have some exercises to do: basically, I have to clench my bum cheeks together (while lying on my front) and then lift the leg off the ground.  This helps teach the glute to fire before bringing the hamstring into the equation – which will hopefully cause a neural change, where my body remembers this is the routine, and it will all start to fire correctly again.

I have other exercises to keep doing too, but that’s the main one at the moment.  If muscles don’t work properly, you might as well not have them. 😦

So tonight I relaxed and watched tv with mum, and am just about to head through to my bed.  I’m off into uni again tomorrow, as I have another hand-in next week, and require some feedback from the lecturer, so that will keep me busy….and I’m heading to my mates house tomorrow night, so it may be Saturday before I post again….I’m sure you can all cope until then. 😉

Hope the world is treating everyone well, and I look forward to you reading my post again in the near future. 😉
