I see a light, I wonder if it will get brighter or fade away

Monday, July 16, 2012

I had my alarm set to get up and workout this morning, but after getting up and brushing my teeth, I was light headed so I thought an hour and a half of sleep was more important than the workout.

It was a good decision because after 6 hours at work, I gave in and came home. I even requested intermittent FMLA before I left so that I will be able to leave early during the week if I get tired. I even thought of just bringing my sleeping bag to work in case I need a nap during the day.. emoticon

I relaxed for a bit, had a roast beef wrap and orange juice. I was feeling better so I thought I would try going for a walk. I realize I can't keep up with my Tough Mudder training, but I can at least try not to backslide too much.

Today I was supposed to do 6.5 miles in 65 minutes. I knew that wasn't going to happen, but my goal was 5.5 miles in 75 minutes (the 75 minutes based on the time I had before Bachelorette started).

I started out and was feeling great. The weather is exactly my favorite, hot with a breeze. At least, normally my favorite right now it is hot for me too.

I got in 3.3 in 50 minutes. MUCH closer to my normal walking pace.

While I was walking my doctor called me and is going to run some more test so I'll have to give up more blood tomorrow. I better drink up in order to get the blood flowing good. Hopefully it will be a one poke day.

Do you hear a whistle?
Are you on track?
Look out for the train!

    What were you doing out in this heat with you not feeling good. Take it easy girl.

Glad your doctor is doing more testing. Are you getting checked for Lyme's?

Hope you feel better soon.
