Rule #1 of fight club blogging…don’t apologize for missed posts. I don’t follow rules very well.
1) I had no idea I would be so out of it following my procedure. I’m still fatigued, but it’s different from the tiredness prior to the procedure. Before it was a whole body, soul and mind depletion. Now, it’s more like a general lack of energy. Although that is probably connected to the not eating. Tuesday I had some eggs for breakfast and a salad and hamburger for dinner. Yesterday I had a chicken and rice dish at lunch. That is the only thing I ate yesterday. I’m not trying to be cool or brag or seek attention. It’s just a fact. I am not hungry and when I eat, it just doesn’t taste right.
Also since the procedure I’ve been having shortness of breath. Not like I did before, when I did before it was only after long periods of exercise. Now it’ll kick in randomly. When I tried to run last night I couldn’t breath half a mile into it. I ran the same course a week ago for over 2 miles and only stopped because I made the choice. WHAT GIVES? Thus I am seeing the doctor today after work. Truth be told that 25K on April 1 is looking less and less likely. And I’m OK with that because health is important. Everything I read said it takes 3-6 MONTHS post ablation to return to working out. My doc gave me the all clear for anything three days into recovery. Does that seem odd to anyone else?
2) I feel famous and special because Oiselle checked in on me. I’ve had companies reply to me before on Twitter, but never has one initiated contact.
3) I made a cake for my coworker/intern for his birthday. It is far from my best work, but I think everyone will appreciate the sugar anyway. In my world those are running shoes. Haha.
BONUS: I was nominated for a Fitterati with Fitness Magazine for “Best Running Blog” Please take a moment to vote for me. It would mean so much! Thank you! You may vote until April 9th and you may vote for more than one blog, so perk up all your favorites.
