Run!, Training

Week 33- Sidelined

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!

How was your week?

Any good running?

 

 

Run!

Meandering Musings

Happy Friday!!!

By the time you read this, I will be one shift away from 16 days off.  16, people.  16.   Ordinarily I would say I was afraid I was going to lose my mind but it’s been a long year.  This may be a vacation I can handle.  I know I need a few days with no alarms or deadlines.


It may only be December 2 but I have been watching non stop Christmas movies for weeks.  I can’t stop!!  They are so cheesy and I love it!   Now if only I could figure out what to do on the Christmas gift front.


Does anyone else get cold feet?  I mean literally.  My toes are frozen all the time!  I need thicker socks!


I made it out for my second night run!  Made it 3 miles this time.   It ended up being a very slow progression.  😛  Man our sidewalks are uneven.   I was bundled up in tights, tank, long sleeves, my Buff®, a beanie, gloves, reflective vest, and a flashlight.   A woman passed me at one point; she was wearing shorts and a dark sweatshirt.   One of these things is not like the other.

Starting next year, work won’t be open on Saturdays anymore, well for the most part.  While kind of awesome, it’s also odd.  Don’t get me wrong, I may miss the occasional odd half day but I won’t miss working Saturdays.     Or the trek to that location.

Speaking of that night run, sorry to everyone I blinded with the strobe light on my flash light.  Apparently this blonde can’t operate a flashlight properly.  😛

Also, WordPress has recently dumped a lot of the blogs I follow so I’m hunting you all down again.  So if you get another follow from me again, hi!

16 days.  I keep coming back to that.   How long until the boredom posts start coming?
