As posted on Thursday, my tree is up and decorated in my office. I like this tree compared to my last tree the past few years. I needed a fuller tree because I've collected a lot of ornaments over the years, so I went to Home Depot. They need to put handles on those boxes. The box wasn't heavy, but it's bulky, and getting it to my car was interesting, but not as interesting as getting it from my car to my office building. The front of the building is cut off due to construction, so I had to carry the box from the parking garage to the building. Not easy.
Monday was my medical massage and scar tissue diagnosis. I'm going to start acoustic wave therapy when I get back from Christmas, and I hope it helps. I'm still working on that spot with my lacrosse ball, but if it is scar tissue, I'm going to need help to break it up. My chiro said he'd do the therapy on my entire leg, to break up the existing scar tissue, and to make sure other spots don't acquire scar tissue.
Saturday was a lazy day after Pure Barre. I ran some errands, then put my feet up for the rest of the day. I needed to nap because I'd been out Friday night for a holiday party (which was a lot of fun), and I watched Army/Navy, then the Santa Clause. I have family who've served in both the army and navy, so I was pulling for both teams. After the game and movie, I felt like baking, and made snickerdoodles.
Finally, I took an extra rest day on Sunday because I did Pure Barre on Saturday, and I woke up yesterday with two strategically placed knots in my glutes. I'm trying to work on relaxing during my runs, and making sure my muscles stay relaxed too. Those knots would not have been good for a relaxing run. So I stayed home for some extra foam rolling, while watching the Dallas Marathon. The race was having a fun Duo to Rio relay with elites, where the men ran the first half and the women ran the second half.
Anybody have races, or run the Dallas races?
