This is the last week of the #FleurtySummerChallenge and I'm going to be sad to see it end. I've been really doing well with this. I've had a few hiccups here and there but for the most part have stayed the course. (I guess that's true with just about anything!) I'll have a more detailed post up about all of this towards the end of the week and about all my thoughts, feelings, successes, failures, etc during the challenge.
In other news, I haven't done a weekly update from last week. I did pretty good though, I think I got 5 days of exercise in and food was good. I'd give myself a B for last week.
On Saturday, however, at some point while playing tennis, I managed to hurt my back. I shrugged it off and kept on going. It was a "tweak" and I guess after the age of 40 those happen regularly so I did what I thought was best and ignored it and kept on going. The lesson itself, turned out to be one of my best ones. It was just me and Coach Lo so a good one on one lesson and we covered the gamut of forehands, backhands, volleys, serves and overhead smashes for an hour and a half.
As I left the clinic to head home and was walking to the car, I felt achy in my back. So I decided to go ahead and put the heated seat to on and that may help work the kink out. By the time I arrived home and went to get out of the car, I came to the stark realization that I could hardly move. Uh oh.
With Chris's help, I got in and immediately got to the shower, got changed and then promptly sat on a heating pad constantly since Saturday around noon. Each day it feels a bit better than the last, but I've been without any exercise since Saturday and I really think I am not going to tennis tonight either and listen to my body. So I'm definitely going to give it one more full day of rest and play everything by ear for tomorrow. Shitty timing for an injury right? Just as I'm on the tail end of this challenge.
The good (?!) news is that I'm doing a good job of clearing off my dvr for the new fall tv shows!
62 days left until Disney!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I get to make our FastPass + reservations Thursday night! This will be my first time doing that. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions? Do I just go after the main attractions? Halp!
And I signed up a while back for The Oatmeal's virtual 10K. I'm quietly starting to freak out about it. I have not ran in a while (a few weeks) and consistently well - even longer. Plus it's still hot as Hades here. My thought was to run/walk the thing on the Sunday morning early. My "plan" was to start running again more regularly once it started cooling off (October). I may try a 4 minute run / 2 minute walk method and just see how it goes.

Alrighty that's about all that's going on right now with me. Hope you guys are doing well!
Gimme all your NYC tips/tricks! Also if you have any experience with Disney's Fast Pass+ scheduling? (Back in my day, you had to walk to the fast pass machine! Like a savage!)
