Monday - I started the day in the pool working on the TI drills. After swim I headed to PT. This week I saw a spine specialist for the first time. She did an evaluation, had me try some new exercises & suggested I get an MRI. Oh & at the end of the session she told me she was moving to Idaho & I would be seeing another spine specialist next time. Really wasn't too impressed with the experience. Especially since I left feeling a lot more pain than when I went in. I am pretty sure the 16th will be my last appointment.
After work I headed to a Pilates Reformer trial class. It was a freebie offered at the Y which I couldn't pass up. I was really impressed with the class. I am contemplating signing up for a session in January. On my way home this happened:
Tuesday - I slept through the AM pilates class but did make the evening yoga class. That was pretty much the excitement of the day.
Wednesday - I did another swim/drill session in the morning. I had my first wardrobe fail too. I packed my gear the night before & somehow I managed to pack 2 different black shoes. Fortunately I packed black jeans instead of dress pants so I was able to wear my running shoes to work & not look too stupid.
After work the Women @ Work network volunteered at the Chrysalis House Holiday Party. The Chrysalis House is a great non profit that provides substance abuse treatment for women and families. We served dinner & helped kids decorate sugar cookies. This reminds me that I want to do a Good Karma Holiday Edition post.
Thursday - I had an 8AM meeting so couldn't make it to the morning Pilates class but did make it to the gym after work. I did a 30 minute walk, not quite pain free, followed by yoga.
Friday - No workouts today but I did go to my Chiropractor after work. We discussed the status of my injury & talked about ART & other treatments. I caught him up on my PT experiences & the MRI suggestion. I will most likely get the MRI to see if there are any spinal/pelvic issues that are causing the pain. He then did some adjustments & some trigger pointing. I walked out pain free which I made my day.
Tomorrow Steve & I are going to the Reindeer Ramble followed by a TNT alumni brunch. Figures it will be the coldest day of the season! I have several layers of clothes laid out to wear while cheering on the sidelines. I am hoping to meet a couple fellow bloggers, Julie & Christy, there too.
Have a great weekend y'all!
