After my run I laid on the couch and applied my new best friend - my trusty bag of frozen peas. I am hoping to avoid too much inflamation by icing after every run or walk. I know people that have taken this approach and successfully avoided injury so I am doing it too. I am keeping my trusty anti-inflamatories in stock because that will also help alleviate pain and inflamation.
On the fundraising front, I now have 31% of my $4000 goal. I want to give a big THANK YOU to everyone that has contributed so far. I still have a long way to go and all contributions are welcome! Remember, your donation is 100% tax deductible! I've been working hard on fundraising, last week I sent out 100 letters by post, I am sending emails like a mad woman and I am planning a cocktail party for the end of this month.
Please cross your fingers because I am actively trying to do a wine and chocolate fundraiser but still haven't nailed down the date. I am working on it!
Well, tomorrow I plan on doing some cross training, probably strength that focuses on my lower body. Building strength in my lower body will also help me prevent injury. So tell me, have you been exercising consistently? Do you have anything new that you've added to your program?
