1. Lots of ups and downs happened in these past few days. More ups then downs.
My mom informed me that the Boston Strong run was featured in the latest issue of the Tejano Tribune (a local community college newspaper). I was so excited! I wasn’t sure when or if my interview would be published. I still feel like it was one the best things I’ve ever been a part of.
2. I had a really good weekend up until Sunday. I’ll get to that in a minute. Saturday I went to boot camp once again and had a great time. Lots of high intensity training and 5 minutes of burpees. Do one and they seem simple, but after 5 minutes all of the muscles in your body are on fire. I was able to do 89 burpees. I wasn’t really sure what a good number was, but I was very proud of myself because I know I pushed myself until I couldn’t anymore. It felt great.
Now on to Sunday; it was my rest day but I always do some sort of yoga everyday. I did a chest to wall handstand. I was comfortable in the pose. I walked my hands away from the wall and preceded to cartwheel to the side. My right shoulder locked and I completely lost my balance. On the way down I scraped my foot, hit my knee and landed on my head.
It didn’t seem so bad at first. I was in a little bit of pain but I’ve fallen before so I assumed I would be okay. I went on with the rest of my day. As each hour passed, I started feeling weak and very tired. That’s not very typical for me so I knew this was more than just a little fall. Even though I wanted to take a nap I knew I needed to stay up to make sure I didn’t have a concussion. I did have a headache. I just sat the rest of the day. It’s been a while since I’ve done that but my body really needed it.
I’ve learned it’s so important to listen to your body. I’m feeling 90% back to normal.
3. I’ve been nominated for best local blogger in what’s up magazine, an El Paso entertainment publication. So my local friends, if you are going to be attending the “dig” May 15th, I’d love it if you could vote for me.
