If there is an upside to not running, it’s the fewer loads of laundry you have to do on the weekend.
Gotta find the shiny side, right? Or try to. 😛
So yeah, thanks to the UTI from hell and me not checking about the medication first, last week was super Slacker like. But maybe I needed it? I didn’t really have time to worry about my mysterious groin pain issue as the medication issue forced me to rest anyways.
Work wise, things are a little more under control after this week. I finally managed to get my inbox to 50 ish. Which is still not great but it’s way better than it was. I treat my inbox like a to-do list so the triple digits were starting to get to me. Now if I could just get my piles of paper under control. 😛
So let’s get to the very abbreviated work out week-
Monday- 1.3 miles I felt crap all day but I was trying to ignore it. I’d been living in denial for quite some time. I headed for the lake path to get in some miles but it only took one loop to admit defeat. I had a problem and I likely needed medicine. Grrr.
Tuesday- Rest Made it to the doctor and they confirmed my suspicions and my denial. Ha! Never been so thankful for medicine…until I realized the side effects.
Wednesday- More rest.
Thursday- 3 mile walk I had an appointment with my neurologist so I was home a little earlier than normal. I figured I would try a walk. Walking is not running. I listened to a podcast to try not being so bored but I so wanted to be running.
Friday- Rest Holy crap, I was so sore. What gives- it was only a walk!! And I know I have a hip imbalance but for the most part I can ignore it during and after running. After a little walk, I felt like I was walking crooked!
Saturday/Sunday- Rest I really did think about a trying for a long walk but in the end I just didn’t. I napped a lot which seems to be my MO these days. I have to get a new bed. I just keep waking up in pain and feeling more tired than I did before. I just keep hoping to make it Labor day and hoping that there will good sales. I didn’t exactly plan for this purchase. Grrr.
4.3 miles for the week. Yes, I’m counting those walking miles, they freakin’ hurt me. 😛
Now as for this week, the medication has been completed but the effects linger so I think I am going to do some walking/jogging intervals. Fingers crossed!
