It's been a **** of a few weeks here. Broken molar, which you know about. What I haven't shared is the excruciating pain I was in a few weeks ago. The same day we saw Duck in Eugene, I ended up weeping and moaning for hours. GoV desperately wanted to take me to the ER, but I refused. Since then... pain, antibiotic, still pain, majorly horrible reaction to the antibiotic (it destroyed me), more pain, begged the dentist to let me stop taking the **** antibiotic, which he did, still in pain AND still having major GI distress, tooth was extracted, more pain, more gut problems, etc. Do you see a theme? Oh, and then at the end of last week I also had a huge allergic reaction to the **** meds and broke out in what looked like acne but was a rash of some sort all over my chest, neck, and jaw. I looked like a freaking leper. So basically I was on the antibiotic for 5 days and have been off it for 10 days now, and I'm STILL not well. The rash is all cleared up, thanks to a pretty scary steroid cream. But the gut is still a mess and my jaw still hurts. I went to the dentist yesterday for a regular hygiene appt, and everything looks fine. He said to just give it time. Umm, what have I been doing until now???
I'm pretty much over it, as you can imagine.
Anyway, despite all that I managed 12 miles on Sunday. It was brutal, but I did it. I got a late start (thanks, antibiotic that destroyed my GI system!) so it was hot. Plus I needed two emergency pit stops (refer back to prior parenthetical phrase). But it was the longest run I've done in several years, so I'll take it.
Saucon, I keep telling myself to get to a track but never go.
It scares me at this point. Congrats to Missy on her first run! Kath, how was the showing? Hi Ron and Bob! Good job with the consistency. Duck, that's interesting about the inhaler.
I should work out tonight because I skipped this morning and it's BEAUTIFUL out. But I'm reading a decent book and know I will just want to read later.
