My back is even worse today than it was on Saturday. I don't know why. Maybe I need to take a break from picking up BOTH kids. Went for an easy swim hoping that would stretch things out. Tried to do some stretching in the water. Couldn't do much. Felt better walking, but now I can't even sit in my desk chair without pain. Iced this morning. Really frustrated with this.

Sunday - January 12

Saturday - January 11

Spent all day in the ER with my 4 yr old yesterday. His knee was swollen. They ruled out infection, and since there's no apparent injury we are going to the ortho Mon. Worried it could be something serious... like juvenile arthritis... And b/c he was refusing to walk, I carried him around all day and now my back is sore. Kiddo is almost back to normal. Workouts did not get done. Maybe tomorrow. Raining all day here anyhow.

So... Been MIA for a while. Traveling for 2 weeks, did not take my running gear. Got sick. Found out I'm not allowed to get sick out of state: My only options were go to ER or pay full price to see a doctor. Thankfully, my doc prescribed something over the phone. Then I made the mistake of doing push-ups, which made my back/neck to seize up. Fixed that with some muscle relaxers. Now I think I'm recovered from travel and night on train with two small children. Time to get my butt in gear!
