Thanks guys, I feel pretty good at 31. Kind of reflective at the moment since I've been thinking I won't be able to be around my family next year at this time...and then started thinking about all the family things I'll miss soon.

9/10/2010
Rest day
20 minute walk with Connor

MobWOD 9/10/10
-6:00 L/R with foam rolling but rolling side to side instead of up and down - IT band, calves, quad, adductors
-Bonus:
-kossack hip stretch at bottom - 1:00
-thoracic extension - 1:00 on foam roller, 1:00 on tennis ball taped together
-Bonus - awful scap lacrosse ball arm raise thing - 1:00L/R


Notes:
-How stupid am I after having a foam roller for all these years and never utilizing it like Kstar described? I always either stayed on hotspots trying to grind them out or rolled up and down never side to side.
-Did the bonus stuff to work on weak points, tried exploring hte hips with the kossack thing again but just didn't feel anything.That scap loacrosse ball thing is just hideous
