2013: They call me "HILDEBEAST"....

July 21, 2014

So I had a good visit with my doc on Friday... she actually dug a little deeper into my history to see if she could figure out the shoulder thing.  She ran a bunch of labs and is checking into the possibility of rheumatoid arthritis which although I do not WANT to have RA, it would answer ALL the questions about the auto-immune crap dealing with my eyes.  In the meantime, she put me back on Celebrex which I was taking last year to see if would stop my eyes from flaring (it didn't, so now I'm on Humira), and so far so good.  It definitely takes the edge off the pain!  I'm taking one pill a day for 2 weeks, and if I am still having a lot of pain I can go up to the max of 2 pills a day, follow up in a month and the good thing is that I can still swim, she wants me to stay active.

Found a great Punta Canta all-inclusive resort, mid-range is my style (not honeymoon type of stuff!) and they even had a 25% discount for single travelers the week I want to go... but air fare from Kansas to Dominican Republic is $1100 minimum, and the only flight option (ONLY?!) is a 40-min layover in Atlanta which I just won't do - unless I want to have an "overnight" flight experience both ways. Crazy. Might not be going to Dominican, unless I explore departing from Oklahoma City or some such, which seems like a lot of work.

Happy monday. My feet and legs are sore from the festival. And I'm tired. And have two HUGE mosquito bites right on my sit bones that are not making work comfortable. Boo.

decent swim.  slower than Wednesday, but my arms tell me it was a tough work out.  the second set of 100's definitely suffered and 150s weren't great.

Supposed to be a rest day, but since I missed swims Friday and yesterday I figured a swim wouldnt hurt.  Technically I guess I didnt miss anything since the instructions for my plan in the 2 weeks after a race is that the plan is just a suggestion.  Listen to the body and take the rest when needed. 
Anyhow, a great morning for a swim.  Flat lake, sunny skies and perfect temps.  Only a couple of us at the lake though.

Yesterday morning I thought, "I've been sleeping quite well the past several days!  Minimal wakeups in the middle of the night, comfortable, waking up feeling pretty well-rested."  And then last night happened.  haha  Just could not get comfortable, and it seemed like I woke up every hour.  Including waking up for good at 4:30 - just laid there until the alarm went off at 5:15.  Annoying!

Back in the office - brought the bike to ride home after meeting with school but a buddy wants to ride downtown so I will meet him and catch a ride home with him - commuting tomorrow hopefully.

While I was away the boss from the shop texted me - he is buying me a new bike to ride for a year - no complaints here :)

BTW - no internet really down there so I had no way to post anything - but I did ride over 5 hours of total bike time and even ran one day. I even got a beach flat :(

Blerg.  Swim cancelled. It was actually cancelled with lots of notice.  I, however, did not read my email until I was on the subway en route to said swimming.
I got off the train to head home and then i realized I should just go to work so i could leave early. I would have to get changed out of my swimsuit and put on makeup at work. But those facilities are actually preferable to those of the pool.  So here I am before 8 am.

My right knee ached badly the rest of the day on Sunday, prompting a day off today. It's not so bad this morning. I will be gentle with my next run for sure.
