This week has been busy! It started on Sunday when I took my physiology unit test. It covered the heart, blood, blood vessels, and the digestive system. Needless to day it was a lot of information that I had to know. Luckily all my studying paid off and I aced it. Yesterday I did a Bosu ball presentation with a friend for our strength training class. I had been stressing about it, trying to make sure I could answer any and all questions that we might be asked. I think it went relatively well. I’m definitely feeling relieved that it’s finally done!
We’ve also been training partners in the gym for an assignment. It’s been a real eye opener for what it’s going to be like when I graduate. The hour we have flies by! The first workout I did we didn’t even have time for the cool down. While I had profs tell me that there’s a lot of small talk involved while your client is doing the work, I didn’t realize exactly how much. Even when I’m explaining the exercise that I want my partner to do has been a learning experience. I think I’m being clear, but then she’ll have questions about the details “Is it single arm or both arms? How much weight do you want me to use? How does my form look?” I’m really glad we’ve been doing this because it gives me a better feel for what I’ll be doing in the real world.
This coming Sunday I’ll be helping out at the Flames Health Training Camp at WinSport. It sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun, so if you’re in Calgary you should come down. There will be everything from health screenings to workouts, to ideas for meal planning, so there’s something for everyone. I’m really looking forward to it – I’m sure I’m going to learn a lot.
Today the plan is to get as much homework done as I can. I have some reading to do for my nutrition class, an assignment to finish for my program design class, and an article to finish for the school newspaper. This will be my fifth and final piece for the newspaper this year. It’s amazing how fast the year has gone by. So even though I don’t have any classes today, I’ll still be busy getting lots of work done.
This weekend won’t all be work though. I have plans with friends to see 10 Cloverfield Lane on Saturday night. It looks like a scary movie, which is perfect for the group of friends who are going. Then on Sunday I’ll be having dinner with some friends who will be in Calgary from out of town. It’s been awhile since I’ve last seen them so I’m sure there will be lots of catching up happening.
Leave a comment with one thing you’re looking forward to this weekend.
