  1. 26 days and counting

    by , 11-18-2008 at 03:05 PM
    Morning: hot shower and only time for knee and elbow exercises followed by icing and a bag of peas on the shoulder for ten minutes. Off to work and then a lunch of 1/2 tuna sandwich plus two apples.

    I think I have found the source of Saturday's mystery illness. I seem to be developing an intolerance to apples... or maybe just a certain type of apples.

    So tonight, I bought some Gala apples and had no side effects. Weird. I also had half a Subway tuna sandwich. Again, ...

  2. Okay, that was fun

    by , 11-17-2008 at 10:35 PM
    Monday last week was lackluster. Then, last Wednesday my hip/sciatica/butt/whatever it is was still bothering me and I had so much work I couldn't see going to fencing, so I didn't. Today, I got my grades and comments in and bought a new pair of sneakers (I think with the amount of walking I do, six months is IT) and headed to fencing. It was sparse--Meng, Kiersten, and a foilist, Lydia, were the only sabre fencers, but it was fun. I'm drenched with sweat and red in the face, and during my bout ...

  3. Update on things

    by , 11-17-2008 at 06:32 PM
    Well, been on the pills since friday, and there seems to be some effect, though I'm not sure how much of it is down to them, how much is the placebo effect, how much is due to getting more sleep, eating better and how much of it is because of just being able to talk about things more. Whatever, I'm still feeling a bit better and have a bit more energy about me, which can only be good.

    Spoke to my boss yesterday about my job, and ended up just having a bit of a blether in general, but ...

    Monday begins with a hot shower followed by the usual knee and elbow and then shoulder exercises (3 lb. weights added). I'm sitting at the keyboard with a bag of peas on my shoulder and I'm icing my elbow (except, obviously, not while typing).

    I noted during knee exercises that the swelling is almost gone. Hurrah! This verifies what I suspected... fencing doesn't bother it as much as sitting for long periods of time and/or using weight equipment at the gym. Maybe I should ice ...

    Today began with the usual shower followed by elbow and knee exercises and then shoulder exercises with 3 lb. weights followed by wearing a bag of peas on my shoulder while I iced my elbow. Next up: Gym. I'm trying to force my lazy butt off the chair and out to the gym. It's cold outside. I don't want to go.

    Back from the gym.

    60 minutes on the ET for 4 miles, which is double what I usually do and the pace that I think I need to keep. 3 sets of 12 of leg extension ...
