I've cut way back on work hours and I have to say it's nice to have free time!  I'm going to a yoga fundraiser this morning, although I have the feeling that no one is going to go because they didn't publicize it.  The parkour gym has funny ways sometimes.  I had the best classes last night--first parkour then silks. I was able to keep up w/ the young guys at parkour. I'll never get the high jumps they do but that's okay.  And silks is feeling really good right now.  It was tough when I came back to it after ski season but now I'm feeling much stronger and getting my body on it (as it, when I'm upside down, which way is up, how to follow directions being given to me).  I need a good yoga class to stretch me out!

Jean, free time is definitely nice!  

It was mid afternoon yesterday and I hadn't heard from the doc yet so I finally called.  Turns out, they got the results Friday but the doctor HASN'T HAD TIME TO REVIEW THEM YET.  ARRRRRGGGHHHHH.  Seriously.  I have myself worked up over this and am anxiously waiting for the endo appointment tomorrow.  

No workout today.  Didn't sleep well (probably because I'm stressed) and am kind of tired today.  Did a little work already and may do more later.  Going to get my allergy shot, out to lunch with OP and we're going to an exhibit at the art museum.  It's a traveling exhibit of famous movie props, like Dorothy's shoes from The Wizard of Oz.  

Started the conversation with my remaining client about continuing training.  She doesn't want to quit but also has the sense that I'm moving on (which is more or less correct).  Presently, everything is so much work.  Eating is too much work.  Showering is too much work.  So, I don't think I'm in a good state to make a decision like that.  I've suggested we meet next week and she's on vacation the next week so that'll give us some time.

Ugh, can we assume that if the results were far askew, the lab would have told the doctor and you'd have heard so it's a case of no news is good news?  Is the swelling any better?  Sounds like a good time for nutritious smoothies o margaritas...

Hope your client decides on her own that she needs to move on. It's so much easier when they do it.  I have to say I had to fight back yelling "Woohoo" when my problem client told me she was going to stop training because I think she felt bad about it.

No, we cannot assume that.  The frustrating thing that I made my endo appointment thinking I'd have plenty of time to get the results so I can take them to the appointment tomorrow.  I have to go to the allergist today for my shot and I'm going to insist that they give me my results while I'm there.  

I'm really of two minds with my client.  On one hand, I think it's a good thing for me to have two very different types of work to do.  I also enjoy her (usually).  The side of it is that I don't want to deal with scheduling with her anymore.  I already do so much scheduling for my myriad of doctors appointments... more scheduling = yuck.

Gym-that would be very frustrating to know they have the results but haven't looked at them yet. Can you be the squeaky wheel and just keep pestering? Maybe if you explain that you are seeing the endo tomorrow they might speed things up. 

I got a few tips from the podiatrist on my blister problems. Every summer whether walking or running, my feet stay chewed up with blisters. I've tried every sock and shoe combo plus tape, bandaids and every thing else known to womankind and still have problems. The doctor thinks excessive sweaty feet may be the problem and suggested I use antiperspirant on my feet to try to cut down on the excessive moisture. I had never even heard of that before so I am going to give it a try. If this turns out to solve my issue then I am going to smack myself for never having asked for help with this before now. 

Jean, by the time I got to circuit 4 I could feel Sunday's long run and was barely moving. I'm sure my form was horrid and anyone watching probably thought I had no idea what I was doing. lol

Total rest day for me today.

Anything further on the doctor front?

I have heard that w/ antiperspirant. I also get really sweaty feet, like 15 miles later mine are sloshing. Let me know if it works! I'm finished w/ long distance running, though.

Feel free to cut the circuit!  I think I only got through three in class.  I can't imagine doing that the day after a long run (note, though, the day after a long run should be at most active recovery!).

Jean I typically do a light recovery jog on the day after a long run and I wasn't really thinking about how difficult that workout was until I got into it. Next time I do it will be the day after a rest day. lol

And I am hoping the antiperspirant works for me!

Sadly, no.  I was there for my allergy injections and argued with the nurse.  Blah, blah, blah.  Very frustrated.  I explained that I had a doctor appointment and of course, they're wiling to release it to them.  I didn't want to do that because it's a brand new doctor and there are just too many possibilities for failure.  But, it looks like that's my next course.  Morons.

LOL, and knowing it was for you, I made it really hard.  If you want a light recovery workout, let me know. But I think a good brisk walk and some stretching can't be beat.

Ugh. This is one reason people pay so much for the concierge medicine program I work for.  One stop medicine is wonderful--tooo bad there are so many elitist things wrong with it.
