Spoke too soon.

Yesterday I showed you all my workout plan for the week. Well, after typing up my post I decided to go to a Zumba class I found in the south loop. The class was a blast, but about 20 min in I felt my IT band start to bother me. I tried to stop doing side-to-side as much as I could, but by the end of class it was really hurting again. What does this mean? Well, it means this past week with no running hasn’t helped. I’ve decided to take another week off, and wait until the GOTR 5K on Saturday to run again. As frustrated as I am right now, I know that in the long run this is what’s going to help.

So here’s my new workout plan:

Well. There you have it.

Enough of that depressing-ness, time for a book review! Every month I participate in Julie’s book club, and this month’s book was called Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher.

Thirteen reasons why is narrated by a boy who follows the story of the girl he liked in high school and she explained how thirteen different people affected her decision to commit suicide. The novel is definitely not an uplifting novel, but despite that I really enjoyed reading it. It was definitely a page turner and despite the fact that at the beginning of the book you already know she’s died, I still wished that it hadn’t happened, that he’d stopped her somehow.



Despite the stories bleak subject matter, I felt like it discussed a very important issue. The girl shows us that although each of these thirteen people did something small, each of the small things affected her life greatly. We all know that bullying is an issue in our society but this book did a great job of showing how it really affected the bullied person, as well as demonstrated that bullying isn’t just about harassing someone, it can be done in much more subtle ways. I loved how the author switched back and forth between the current time narrated by the boy and the past narrated by the girl who committed suicide. And although everything that happened to the girl during her time at this high school seems like a lot when combined, the author wrote the story and the characters in a way that was very realistic.

I really enjoyed reading this book and finished it pretty quickly! I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for something a little more thought-provoking and very relevant to society today. If you live in Chicago you can borrow my copy!

 

Was bullying an issue in you middle school, high school or college (or workplace now)?

Have you read this book, what did you think?

Anyone have magical IT band healing capabilities?
