My old doctor has moved from chiro to teaching pilates, so I was scheduled to see Dr. Marasco who does a lot of Crossfit AND had the same injury as mine last year. He did some ultrasound for my tennis elbow and then worked with it a bit. Then for my sprained shoulder, I had some lovely massage and a spinal and neck adjustment. What did all that spell?
I fell asleep fine and slept through the night. I'm to continue twice a week for now and see how it goes. Fine by me :-)
2. My husband saved my dogs life last night. I've had the stomach flu and my three main meals yesterday consisted of popsicles. I left the sticks on the table next to the couch I slept on all day and when I managed to rouse myself to take Mai to basketball practice, the dog decided to eat sticks...which got lodged in the roof of her mouth and throat. Steve came out to find she had puked all over the house and was dramatically scratching at her face and mouth and causing a bloody mess. She eventually started choking so badly that he though she was going to die. He reached in to find two sticks lodged in her throat and made the decision that he must just rip them out immediately and worry about how that might hurt her later. She seems fine now, but was quite the pitiful pooch last night when I arrived home.
3. Our Sisters Of Pain group met up this last week to discuss strategy for the The Wild Canyon Games.
We are an all women team of seven. Our motto? No Mercy. Our signature drink? To Be Determined. We are happily trying out many drinks to find the perfect one that states what we are all about. The goldschlager one is high on my list.
Here are the events involved in this two day adventure:
300 Meter Sprint
1/2 Mile Sprint
1/8 Mile Swim
1/4 Mile Hill Sprint 1
1/4 Mile Hill Sprint 2
In the challenge events I am doing the 35 foot Ropes Course that includes a "leap of faith". I will be honest and say that I'm a little disappointed to not be doing the Canyon Swing or Zipline, but I'll survive. I'm happy to say I'm not doing the blobbing. Some poor woman broke both ankles on that one last year.
In Creek2Peak I am starting things off with the 300 meter sprint. It is one of the most important jobs of that event as the race starts to get very crowded once runners are forced into a narrow tunnel to complete the race. We need to get a head start in order to have the rest of this race run smoothly. Consider me working on my sprinting skills.
On day one, three teammates are competing in a triathlon while the other four teammates are off geocaching over 177 square miles of Eastern Oregon wilderness. Because my team
hates trusts me, I have been honored with the job of geocaching. This is so wrong on so many levels but I'm up for the challenge. We've decided to wear BRIGHT colors so we won't be like those two guys that were so lost last year that they had to spend the night out by themselves and most of the next day because the helicopters could not see them for rescue.

Have you ever had to be rescued?
