Chem Olympics, Wack-o Family, and a weekend that won’t last…

March 28, 2009

Heyy. Yesterday I had practice, then came home and cleaned (ish) for a little while then we went to my aunt’s for dinner and to watch my cousin’s wedding on dvd. She’s just getting back from Antigua with her new HUSBAND (!!) Rob, who has been a part of our family for like the last 4 years anyway…haha.

So that was good, I had a Tuna- Avocado- Sundried tomatoe salad (on spinach) for lunch, wich was sooo good then basicly the same thing for dinner… except think grilled zuccini and other leftovre grilled veggies from the burgers the other night.

PT went reallly well. She told me she’s not going to have me stop running… HORaY! But the tendonitis will take a while to heal and may get better only a little at a time. she taped my arch with kiniseo… and oh yah- I have the most flexible feet she’s ever seen. yay? No. She said that’s probably what’s causeing my problems. My shoes have also been hurting it. They’re extremely rigid , so they don’t give the tendons a chance to recover after each strike. Boo. So I need a good new pair of running shoes… and I’m still slowly incorporateing the barefoot into my routine. Yesterday I did annother quarter mile. Hahaha that sound soo funny. I can tell this is going to be good- it definatly works different muscles. Muscles that have been asleep for the past 16 years of my life thanks to my ultra supportive shoes. It really works your achilles, facia, and calves in a completely different way.

So today I had to get up tre early for the chem olimpics. I have to say, I wasn’t prepared and I really didn’t feel confident. The test was pretty hard and I had never heard of some of the things on it… when we got the results back, we found out we took positions 1-5! Andddd… I came in 3rd! Kim beat me by 1.7 points! grr. So anyway, I’m moving onto the next round, I guess the national leval one? So thats good. I hope we don’t have anything going on that weekend, it’s on April 25th I think?
