Ended the summer with a bang!
Finished the my first Tough Mudder (pics to come when/if I can find them) a few weeks ago. Great group of people I went with, there ended up being 12 of us all together very cool. I was surprised by the amount of upper body strength some of the obstacles required [note for me to include more rock climbing and UB strength training]. Also was VERY muddy and wet = less running, more slipping and sliding our way through the course and climbing on all fours up hills (felt like mountains). Very impressed by the amount of team oriented mind set there was, not just our team but all others, helping everyone in our group + others through some tough spots.
Chatham University was awesome! Beautiful campus, loads of questions answers and added possibilities to my educational career.
Second campus on my tour list is Duquesne University, this weekend [Sunday actually], super early but am looking forward to it. Hope I get to see their cadaver lab! Will see how they compare 😀 Once I’ve visited all the schools, will compile a pros/cons decision making list and post.
Finished the Exercise Physiology Understanding the Athlete Within [awaiting results] and am near the end of my Social Psychology class. In my leisure time, I’m seeing all kinds of social psych stuff. Examples: HBO’s The Wire and this show Survivors have been really interesting to watch.
Started a new course this week: Generation Rx, very cool first week on how our society is becoming more self-diagnosing and self-medicating with the good, bad and ugly consequences.
Big news for me -> started working at a new place called Wholistic Acupuncture – working Fridays and Saturdays from 11a-6p. I will be 1 of the 2 therapists working at the East Liberty location. Walk in through the doors, take immediate RT through door and upstairs
