Family and Fossils

After taking my Part 2 chiropractic board exam two weeks ago, I was able to score a flight home for a nice visit with the family. Since COVID-19 hit during the end of my last trimester, I was unable to go home for break as I had wanted and was due for a visit home. With regulations lifting slightly, and enough time upon my return to self-quarantine before seeing patients, I didn’t hesitate to hurry home!

Mocks and Part II Boards

The last two weeks since my last post have been busy to say the least! To start off, we finally had our first mock patient encounters making use of the telehealth software. We were tasked with tracking down our own mock patients, but luckily my brother was able to help me out and play the role of a patient with neck pain.

Spring 2020-Week 4

As we move into finishing the first month of my 9th trimester, things are slowly but surely getting back to normal. Here in Florida, the beaches and businesses are beginning to open back up, and my girlfriend and I have been able to get out of the house a little more to enjoy Pinellas a little more than we have been as of late.

The Quarantine Haircut

We are about four weeks into the stay at home order due to the coronavirus, and things are going okay. My professors and clinician have been able to polish and standardize their online requirements, which has removed a lot of the workload and stress of completing the online program. Beforehand, I was working on my computer for six to eight hours a day on various research articles, discussion boards, and quizzes, but now it is down to about four hours a day. It has become a much more manageable load that gives me more time to devote to some other things.

Social Distancing

What day is it? What week? What is real life like? I’m not sure about all of you readers out there, but the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing have really flipped things around in my brain. Without a daily routine outside of finishing online requirements, quick workouts, and isolation, the days have seemingly merged into one. That being said, everyone in my life has continued to practice CDC guidelines and we are all still healthy! I hope that each one of you are feeling the same.

Camping and COVID-19

Hello to all the readers out there! Man, it feels like a whole lot has happened since I last wrote to you all two weeks ago. 

To start off this blog, something I was eager to share was that I went camping for the first time since I was about 10-years-old! Two weekends ago my run club and I had a trail run out in the woods, so we turned it into a camping trip. My girlfriend and I, being the young members of the group, lacked all camping equipment and had to borrow from our teammates. The only thing that I had was an air mattress which, of course, had a leak and went flat after just a few hours – at least we had a tent over our heads! I ran the quarter marathon and ended up placing first in my age group!

My girlfriend also placed first in her age group and we received some fun first-place pint glasses as an award. After resting up for a couple of hours we got up and took off on a three-hour hike around the nature preserve. By the time I realized how crazy my club is and how tired I was we were a couple of miles away from the campsite! It was a fun adventure and led to some fantastic pictures you guys see included in this post. The weekend thoroughly wore me out (sleeping flat on the ground didn’t help) but I cannot wait to camp with them again!

Always on the Run

It is race season here in Florida and I couldn’t be happier! I have chosen as a 2020 goal of mine to try and attempt completing 20 races, be they weekend road races, obstacle course races, or an open water swim. While it may not seem like too many, 20 races equals about one race every two weeks, without much wiggle room to miss a weekend. It also means I have been spending a good chunk of my free time training–working on my running endurance and gait all while trying to fight off injuries that have begun to develop.

A Busy Couple of Weeks

The last two weeks have certainly felt busy and even though I have done so much, I still feel like I still have so much to do! My classes have been good, we had our first round of early assessment quizzes and I was randomly assigned all of my trimester presentations early this tri, so balancing studying with other course requirements has proven to require a lot of work.

A Busy Start to the Tri

Just three weeks into this trimester, and we have already hit the ground running! To start things off, we had our trimesterly Club Lunch event. This is an opportunity for the upper tri students to meet the incoming class, as well as give our student clubs a chance to showcase their activities and events for the upcoming trimester. The new students are then able to sign up for clubs and begin getting involved pretty much as soon as they begin their courses.
