I went and checked out a sports rehab center and met with a therapist for about 15 minutes, just to assess where I'm at, where I need to be, and how to get there. She told me things I already knew, such as my right leg muscles are weak, but she told me what the protocol would be to handle working with my injury - and that I did not know about. I went ahead and signed up for the first assessment meeting, which I am getting at half price with the track club referral, and something like 10 workout sessions after that, with a 15% discount. It's way less than personal training sessions, and my sessions will be about an hour each. Since this is a sports rehab place, they'll work with me on my specific sport and my specific injury, not just do generic stretches and exercises. I really should have been doing some sort of sports rehab once they released me from physical therapy.
I've been fighting a viral infection, been to the docs, have meds, been resting. I guess it was just coincidence that this viral infection hit right after I had my flu shot. I thought it was just a reaction to the flu shot. I've been to the doctor's office a couple of times, too. I haven't done much since Saturday. I just didn't have the energy. I feel like things are turning around right now, and I'm on the upswing.
In non-fitness news... My husband paid a bill at Macy's twice, so we have a credit. I thought I would use that credit for a nicer purse. The last purse I bought was while in Florida at Target, right before the PDB cruise last summer. I've been using that $9.99 purse since then, which is a great vacation/travel purse, but it's not practical for day to day use. I still couldn't bring myself to buy a well known brand name purse, about 6" X 7" in size , flat, made out of canvas, and retails for about $130.00, which is around the amount of the credit. I just couldn't justify it. I ended up purchasing another purse for a third of the price, and it's leather, plus snagged a couple of shirts for my husband, and I still have some credit left. My thoughts of creating my own smallish fabric purse have resurfaced, since I still have a ton of fancy-schmancy jacquard fabric from some unwanted curtains. As my son would say, it's another MacGuyver project. We'll see.
