Are Yassos making me slower? I have been going to the track on Tuesdays for the past three weeks doing (or attempting)
Yassos. That is, running at full speed for 800 meters. Realistically, its a full sprint on the length of the track and
a sort of jog around the curve.
Today, I thought I would check my progress and I ran a route where I usually do well...ended up with a 1:04:00/6 miles and
a little knee pain.
Is it worth it?
Maybe it's just that I have a lot on my mind.
My daughter has a condition called trichotillomania. It began over the summer and I figured it was moving, the anticipation
of starting Jr High and quitting cheerleading, which had been a big part of her life.
I researched habit reversal techniques and we bought a tangle toy. I hung in the background while she was on the computer
or watching tv to see how she was doing. I have reached a point in parenting where I don't know what to do.
And I am too emotionally involved. It hurts my heart just knowing I can't help her.
She does talk to me about it and we have discussed going to a counselor, but she has said she isn't comfortable talking to a stranger.
I'm checking with her pediatrician. I'm worried that she is physically hurting her scalp.
After my run today, I'm leaning toward talking to her again about counseling.
