Long Weekend

I’m heading to Ottawa tomorrow to enjoy the Canada Day long weekend, and I am super excited for all the Canada Day festivities!

Back to today. It started off by continuing research about potential northern communities where I might want to go teach. There is so much to think about. I went to teachers college in Thunder Bay, ON and I like to think of that experience as my intro to the north. I now, I now, that’s a bit naive, but Thunder Bay really was a different world for me compared to Vancouver Island or Southern Ontario. I’m so grateful that I had the opportunity to go to teachers college in Thunder Bay, it was an amazing experience that I wouldn’t trade for amything.
Around mid- day the bf and I headed to the gym. I did NROLFW workout 5B, followed by some time on the dreaded rowing machine. I find my left hip always hurts after doing dead lifts, and I don’t think it helps that I do lunges on the same day. I tried doing the rest of the routine before without the dead lifts, and I had no pain. I do have a pre-existing hip flexor injury on the left side, so it’s not something that is completely new. I definitely need to invest more time stretching in general. The next time I do dead lifts I’m going to have my boyfriend come and watch my form, to see if there is anything I can correct. My bf is currently injured, so he spends all of his gym time in the pool right now and doesn’t see me lift. I’ve watched a lot of videos on dead lift form, so I think I know what I’m doing, but who knows maybe there is something I can correct.
