in the animal kingdom i’d be pecked to death

My ankle is feeling so much better. It was a little sore this morning as I was running on the treadmill but overall I think it’ll be okay. It was a long workout this morning and we spent the better part of 20 minutes going up and down the gym floor as various animals. Bear walk, crab walk, duck walk, frog hops, snake slithers, kangaroo hops… essentially I hauled my ‘beached whale’ of a body up and down the floor in a weak imitation of these animals. My bear had to pause every 30 seconds to allow the blood to drain from it’s face. My crab couldn’t support itself with it’s weakling arms and scooted backwards on it’s butt down the floor. My frog gave up on doing a 2 legged hops and would walk/hop feebly down the room, bending over each time to touch the floor. Basically if I was really an animal, I’d be the weak, deformed one that the herd must run off their territory or peck to death to prevent it’s inferior DNA from tainting the gene pool thus leading to the slow, tragic death of the species. Good times for me. I cannot wait for the day when I can successfully walk like bear of a crab down and back the length of a basketball court. A girl can dream!

P.S. I’ve lost 6.5 inches so far
