Well, week six of eight is down in the history books. For those that like my fractions, today completes 10/13ths of my SRT. Today's session went back the other direction and took 55 minutes, which sucked as I simply wanted in and out of the place.
Haven't been in as much or deep as pain as the previous two days, which has helped. Wasnt too sore going into the treatment today, but boy, it knocked me for a loop by the time we were through.
Nine more sessions. Single digit, its more intense on me at this point, but its still nice knowing its less than 10 to go. Least it makes my head happy.
Hopefully, I will do better this weekend, the last two were pretty miserable affairs trying to recoup for the next Monday.
