Keeping it brief today…I’ve been at home sick since around 1:00 today. I actually was really worried for a while that it was some kind of post op flare up because I also had a lot of intense pain around the surgical area, but that’s gone down a bit and I’m hoping it’s just the flu. Never thought I’d hope for the flu, but there we have it. Apparently, there’s a stomach bug going around the area so I’m guessing I picked it up. My immune system has been all jacked up between spending December living in a bubble and then I’ve been training pretty hard all of January, so it’s no wonder I’m not feeling my best. Nurse Duncan has been on the job as usual, napping next to me on the couch while I lay there and whimper.
Trying not to freak out that I’m missing my run for the second day in a row, but things happen. I’m still fairly low mileage right now, so it’s not the end of the world if I can’t get 3 miles in. Looking forward to hopefully getting it in tomorrow, as well as the errands I’m supposed to be taking care of tonight. I’m a very results driven person, and I am ideally always productive, so today is kind of a tough blow to my ego.
Tomorrow I also have a much needed lunch with some girlfriends. We’re all going through some very big life changes, so it’s nice to get to see each other when we can.
And lastly, I just want to send a thank you out to my Aunt Lynette. I’m going through some tough stuff mentally right now and trying to sort some things out, and she’s just really been a great sounding board for me. I’m sure I’m probably driving her crazy right now, but she’s always nothing less than supportive.
Hope you have a great weekend!
