Well I intended for today to be a rest day, but it hasn't really worked out that way. Between the stationary bike, walking, and other stuff I have a feeling I will track about 20 miles today. If I compare it to yesterday's effort then sure, it could be a rest day. But yesterday was a little extreme. I ended up with over 500 fitness minutes yesterday! I know I need to take a rest day or two, so maybe Fri and Sat? Think I can do it? This exercise is addictive. I have been addicted to worse things in my life though, so I am not sweating it (or rather I AM sweating... and it feels good).
I had to go for blood work again today. I just went yesterday, but the dr's office called and said my levels were off, so back I went today, and it looks like maybe tomorrow as well. My poor veins are tired. There is so much scar tissue that the lab techs have trouble with me. Most of the time we laugh about it, but some days it is hard to laugh. The last two times I have gone they had to go in the back of my hand. Can you say Ouch! For some reason in the hand hurts more than the arm.
The water will be off in my building tomorrow for water meter replacement. Building management provided everyone with a gallon of water and advised us to fill our bathtubs tonight, so we have water to flush the toilet and such like. I will probably go to my parents' house for at least part of the day. I have a gift card for a local dept store, so maybe I will leave the dog with mom and dad and go shopping. I still need a few things for my trip in June/July. Can you believe it is just over 50 days until we leave? I am excited to go, even though I am also nervous. I keep telling myself we will have tons of fun, and most of the time I believe it.
