The project is on. I fly out Thursday night.
Admit I’m a bit nervous as I have not been in Nigeria for about 10 years. (Man, I am old..I actually feel old.) In addition, I travel alone for most of the first part of the journey. Not so thrilled about hitting Lagos all by myself lonesome, but having done it before I can do it again.
This is particularly good timing, as my coach examined my back last night. He poked and prodded and threw me up on the table and pulled and pushed on it and said, Yes, you have strained your QL.
Exactly “how” I did it is a bit of a mystery. It really isn’t that bad a strain but it is noticable when I do certain things, like sit-ups. He did actually work on it a bit and this morning it feels a bit better.
That said. I will be resting and not doing a ton of running while over there. Or Maybe I will be doing treadmill running. The hotel states we will have access to the “Triple A fitness center” but what that is, is always a bit of a mystery. Chances are, given the location, that it will possibly be nicer than my home gym.
There has been some criticism of the entire project…of all projects, People stating that there are “too many people on the ground” but in reality, there really are not that many people on the ground doing this work, and in my defense, we are going as a pre-emptive measure to teach the proper use of this protective gear. I myself did not think I was very knowledgable, until i spent monday on a hospital systems wide conference call and realized that I do know a few things. And well…maybe there are too many people. Some times good intentions are just that.
So we will see…
