The foam roller still hurt though. They keep telling me it will stop after a while. I’m not 100% sure I believe them.
They had me doing a couple of new exercises today. Nothing too crazy. It was mostly stuff on machines you’d find in any normal gym.
The one funky thing was this thing called the Fitter. You basically slide back and worth across to build strength for lateral movements. (The guy in the picture kinda looks like a creeper.)
HMT said it was, “like skiing, without the skis and the poles and the snow.”
So really, not so much like skiing at all. But it was kind of a fun toy to play on.
Jackie said we’re going to try out running next week. I’m really nervous about it. I want to get back to it so bad, but I’m so afraid I’m going to be disappointed when I try it out. I guess we’ll see what happens.
Here’s my quick HMT update: Turns out he’s from the same hometown as I am. He went to a high school not too far from mine and graduated two years before me. He knows some of the same people I know from high school. Uncanny.
Today we chatted about all kinds of sports stuff. Mostly football. Mostly him making fun of Notre Dame football and both of us talking about the couple excellent pro’s Maryland has turned out lately.
This is about as personal as I’ve ever gotten on the blog…I feel like I might be crossing into that emo kid crap. Warn me if I am.
