So Miss G is having some IT band issues. No panicking. She had those before she met me. They aren’t sympathy pains or anything. I was googling some good stretches and advice for her and sent her this~
I happened upon b-reddy.org while searching for good stretches for the IT band and I THINK he knows what he’s talking about. You can usually get a feel for it. So I think I’ll bookmark him. It’s always nice to have a good resource for these things.
One of the first things I found was that running in the same direction on a curved surface is really bad ~which I TOTALLY told her MONTHS ago and we swapped directions and it so freaked her out I didn’t make her do it again.
Well…now my own running is out of whack so Girl is going to have to adjust.
I didn’t realize it messed ME up that bad. I figured it was my own screwing up somehow. Now I’m certain that had an effect. Dammit.
I sent her that article.
She can’t stand doing cross training (yoga)
or really anything that isn’t running
But running is SO AWESOME (her words) as she smiles big and I actually think I can feel her heart racing at just the though and halfway across the room.
Well if you want to KEEP running…you have to do the other stuff.
Are you twelve years old??
She laughed and said yes she’s a child. But she’ll do what I tell her so she can keep running.
I popped in to see her yesterday and Dr. O asked if I was there for an adjustment…
I didn’t know I could do that more than once a week and he said I could go every day if I wanted, especially since I’m having so many problems.
I am on board. I always feel better…so yep…I cheerfully got adjusted and definitely feel better.
That’s how I want all my doctor/chiropractor appointments to end.
On a totally different note but I’m talking about it anyway…the Syrian refugees are so breaking my heart. This article was so great it reminds you there are great people out there and we can all help in little ways. Then we see the photos in the news and watch the videos and my heart breaks all over again.
I have taken this directly from the Today Show website because I’m late for work but these organizations are great resources to donate to and beyond getting on a plane and helping people actually get to another place…donating is what we can do. And frankly…watching, learning and not denying it’s happening. I think we can do that, too.
There are now 4 million Syrian refugees in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt. Some are now living in desperate conditions in Hungary, from which they hope to enter the European Union.
It’s too late to help Aylan, but you can help other children like him by donating to these charities:
The UN Refugee Agency: Provides cash for medicine and food, stoves and fuel for heating, insulation for tents, thermal blankets and winter clothing.
Save the Children: Supplies food for Syrian kids and supports education in Syrian refugee camps.
Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders: MSF is operating three rescue ships in the Mediterranean Sea that can carry hundreds of people to land.
Unicef: Delivers vaccines, winter clothes and food for children in Syria and neighboring countries. The agency is working to immunize more than 22 million children in the region following a polio outbreak.
International Rescue Committee: The group’s emergency team is in Greece, where nearly 1,000 people are arriving per day.
World Food Programme: The agency says it is struggling to meet the urgent food needs of millions of displaced Syrians.
Mercy Corps: Refugees are most in need of clean water, sanitation services, temporary shelter and food, the agency says.
Aylan Kurdi & Syria’s Child Victims of War: A new fund named after Aylan himself. Money goes to “Hand In Hand For Syria,” a U.K. based organization that works with the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
CARE: Reaches Syrian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, Egypt, Yemen and those displaced inside Syria with food, hygiene items and emergency cash. It’s also helping refugees crossing into Serbia.
Run on…and take care of your IT band. Man that guy is tricky.
