Funny thing is, I don’t feel so rockin’ right now! I ran a corporate bootcamp with a group of lawyers last night in Perth’s beautiful Kings Park and made them do a set of sprints. Now, I actually used to be a sprinter waaaaay back in high school – even won a few regional races if I recall – and still love the feeling of flying along, pushing your body as hard as it can possibly go. But I gotta tell ya, at 34, with my sprinting days long gone, I pulled up kinda sore. (Actually I’m starting to hobble like Quasimodo, my butt cheeks are now in a state of permanent semi-paralysis, and I seem to have acquired a mysterious case of foot-drop on the left side.) But as I am the bootcamp sergeant, I can hardly show any weakness, can I? Sigh. Perhaps next week I’ll just take my whistle and yell at them from the sidelines.
Still, you just can’t beat that feeling of flying past a few lawyers of the male variety and hearing their gasps of surprise as you take it home…
This girl’s still a’rockin! (I can no longer sit to pee as I’ve lost the ability to bend my legs… but that’s just temporary.)
