It has begun

I have officially started training...sort of. I went for my first run last night with Dave. We ran for about 5 minutes. I was planning on going 10, but we left late, and I had kick boxing at 7, so we only got in 5 minutes. Good news is, though, that I also went to kick boxing. There's a girl on the enrichment committee that is a certified aerobic kick boxing teacher, so Tuesday nights we have kick boxing. I feel a little silly punching and kicking at nothing and pretending to jump rope and dodge, but at the same time it sure does get the heart beating. I also got a Yoga/Pilates ball. I did some exercises with it last Friday with my girl friends. It's a lot of fun. I'm going to try to stretch with it every night before bed to help me relax.

Oh good news! My back really hurts. I think I have a pinched nerve or something. It hurts to walk, hurts to run, hurts to sit, hurts to lie down, and hurts to stretch. Now you're thinking, how is that good news? Well, it's not. But the good news is I'm going to the Chiropractor tonight at 5 and hopefully they will fix it and not cost a bajillion bucks. The Chiropractor I'm going to was highly recommended by a friend. I've never been to a Chiropractor before. They'll probably tell me to stop popping my back, which I already know I should do. It's just easier said than done. Wish me luck! I'll probably come home 2 inches taller (yay 6') and with legs that work without hurting.
