this month's diagnosis of the glute pain is related to the "deep six". prescribed treatment is massaging it with a lacrosse ball.
other workouts: bootcamp/crossfit (21x); hiking (once)
days off: 3
netflix/tv obsession(s): oh so closely following the all-star season of dancing with the stars.
artistic/creative outlet/new thing i tried: painting, vaguely, and practicing handstands.
new food i tried: i've fallen off the healthy-eating wagon. this includes eating a half-gallon of ice cream in two days.
book(s) read: thirteen reasons why by jay asher
some of the reviews of this book complained that the main character's reasons for suicide weren't substantial enough, but i don't think that's a fair judgement of the book or of those who commit suicide. you never know how something affects someone else just because it would affect you differently. moral of the story to me: "be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle" (john watson).
number of blog visitors: 698
number of doctor visits: 4 (+ chiro visits)

favorite wod: 50-40-30-20-10 x (wallball, box jumps, kb swings)
highlight of the month: 12 mile run, sub-9:00/mile pace
my garmin must be broken. 12 miles at a sub-9 pace? i was pretty ecstatic when i finished. i've only been running 15-22 miles per week for the past month so it wasn't exactly a) smart to run 12 miles or b) expected that my legs would make it all the way home, but we all know i'm hard headed. the sub-9 miles were a surprise too but my hr was staying low so i ran with it (har har).
lowlight of the month:
rest in peace ck
