Week 12 Update

This week was rough. I ate out 5 days out of 7, which explains my dismal diet (but oh, the roast leg of lamb at Cipollina was certainly delicious!), and then I missed both my classes at the gym. Plus, Sunday was my roller derby league's first scrimmage - I'm still restricted to spectatorship, so no skating or practice for me - and then I nearly bailed on the last practice on Thursday. I was warming up and my legs just felt weak. My shins were cramping in the first five minutes, and my back was aching way earlier than normal. I nearly left, and then a friend convinced me to stay. I'm so glad she did, because even though it wasn't my best practice - I really did feel weak and slightly off balance most of the time - in the last 10 minutes I had a breakthrough: I finally did a crossover. I think. Maybe. (And if the video in that link looked so easy to you, then you probably don't have what my trainer likes to call "chronically tight muscles" that limit the range of motion in your hips, and I hate you. Just sayin'.)

There's a pretty good chance I'll forget how to do these crossovers between now and my next practice on Sunday and I'll have to figure it out all over again. But I felt really good having done them for a few short minutes, and it motivated me to stick out the next practice when I'm feeling tired and weak.
