Every day moving more normally. Wednesday after work back on the treadmill with a jog/walk interval 2.77 miles. Break walks Monday and Tuesday. Felt good to get past the Sunday "ankle complaints", and re-discovered that climbing stairs SLOWLY is more a weight training than a cardio exercise.
Monday after work I had stuff to do... my consultation, where I bubbled about the race, of course... but that meant I was late getting home and did not write a blog.
Tuesday morning was the Dr. appt I made a couple of weeks ago when I was so fatigued and dizzy, etc. He did some blood work, and I didn't have the results back, and then worked late, so again, no blog.
Wednesday I popped by the Running Company to pick up my award, and came home with two new pair of socks to try out... company called Balega. I could not resist trying them out. Then my son was on instant messaging and my neighbor called to tell me I'd neglected to close my garage door! Oops. It pays to have neighbors who will watch your back that way. Anyway, again, no blog.
Today the blood results back: thyroid level is fine on the current dosage... no adjustment, just renewed at the same; but vitamin D is low, so he wrote me a mega-dose once a week 'script.
Thus... it doesn't take a whole lot of "real life" to get in between me and the keyboard some days... just enough to throw me off stride.
But... I've been tracking the food, and my body feels like I got back what I left on the trail Saturday. Only I picked up a little something else either at work or at the Dr.'s office... and my nose is dripping like a faucet.
I may have mentioned this before, but when I'm feeling fit, even if I'm sick, it's not quite as horrid. This thought came to mind as I took the stairs at work, drippy nose and all. This evening's plan is an early bedtime, because tomorrow... I'm the only one on my work team who is NOT on vacation!
Oh, and meditating when you can't breathe through the nose? Not so much fun. But doable. And the cat curled up and warmed my lap the whole time. Yes, I live my life with passion and enthusiasm, as today's centering thought told us.
And tomorrow is Friday... Good Friday, to be precise. A Blessed Easter weekend to all my Christian friends... may the promise of Christmas be fulfilled in the resurrection in your heart.
