So I succeeded in getting to bed by 1am last night. Not quite 12am, but whatever, progress is progress and I’ll take it. The only issue with this progress is that I spent way too long lying in bed attempting to fall asleep. Not cool body, not cool. I’m hoping by the time class starts I’ll actually be able to fall asleep within oh, an hour of getting into bed.
No run or leg workout happened yesterday because of a (not so) fun doctor’s appointment. I’ve had bad knees for years and lately they (especially the right one) have been acting up. Since my body is so used to Advil that it’s not really doing much but killing the pain for 4-6 hours, my doctor put me on naproxen, another NSAID, to bring down the inflammation since the swelling was starting to tweak a nerve. But apparently my knee and my stomach have teamed up against me and I ended up with a couple of days of bad stomache aches, despite taking the stomach meds I got at the same time. So the naproxen is out and I’m stuck using some sort of gel. Don’t have much hope in that working out, but an MRI would be a 6 month wait, I don’t really have much choice. Blech. I like that it’s all free, but I hate the wait times.
As far as workouts today, an arm workout and a 3 mile run is happening, just as soon as I. Hopefully I can avoid the emergency stop button this time, as I’d actually like to run 3 miles.
