Better on Bike

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Today was a bit more successful, at least as far as a workout. I hit the stationary bike hard for 20 minutes, and my knee was all right!


Knee Knocked My Walk

Monday, March 19, 2012

While I'd been looking forward to getting outside this afternoon for a brisk walk, my knee didn't think that was such a goid idea. I had to throw in the towel after just half a mile. I'll hit the stationary bike in the morning and see if that goes any better!

Jaw better, but caught a killer headcold!

My last blog stated that I'd planned a specific workout that afternoon, but it didn't happen. Someone was hogging the stationary bike, I was tired and weepy, and it was all I could do to make myself walk for 15 minutes that afternoon. I didn't connect my lethargy with the swelling in my lower right gum until the next day after it had worsened noticeably. After some wild scrambling to get an emergency appointment with my dentist before his office closed early on Thursday for a long weekend and an equally wild scramble to get my last afternoon class covered by some stellar, sweet colleagues, I found out that my suspicions were confirmed: the root canal I'd had last April had failed, infection had set in, and I was going to lose the tooth. I was in mourning all last night, but the antibiotics must be working, thank God, because I've been able to kick my crying to the curb tonight.


Whine, Whine, Wine?

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Oh, my word! My knees are putting off some serious pain today. I'm going to hit the stationary bike for 20 minutes after work, and walk 15 minutes after as a cool-down. I'll post another blog tomorrow and let you know if this helps or hurts my knees. Since I'm being so strong, maybe some wine would be a good reward to relax with when I finally make it home!
