I felt I should let the entire universe know that yesterday I did several unassisted assisted chin-ups. What exactly is an unassisted assisted chin-up, you say?? Well, because I have weak, feeble T-rex arms, I can't do REAL chin-ups. My trainer, Whitney, ties a big rubber band to the bar and I stick my foot through it. Hence, assisted. But because of the aforementioned weak, feeble T-rex arms, I ALSO require assistance, in the form of a little push, from my trainer to get my chin up above that darn bar. Until yesterday! Yesterday, I did several (maybe 5 out of 30) chin-ups without any help from my trainer. Just that beefy orange band.
In other news, today is very exciting, because I get to go down to Arkansas for 3 Days of Syllamo with all my awesome friends! I've never been before, but I'm told it's a blast. I imagine it being like summer camp, except for adult runners, and it's still winter. The forecast says it will be sunny and in the mid-60s every day though. So you can't beat that. If anything, it might be a little too warm for this hot-blooded runner. Well I guess I have to get ready for summer sometime.
