Today I opened our windows and it was amazing. I am currently recuperating from what I have fondly named the Alabama plague part deux. Which has been an excellent round two of fevers, swollen lymph nodes and all around lazing in bed all day. I decided to go to the doctors in a mission to kill all germs hoarding in my body. Man did I succeed! The lovely nurse practitioner gave me two shots of antibiotics and steroids in my hip and sent me packing with three prescriptions. Now two days later I feel amazing! My energy is back up and all symptoms of the plague are gone. YAY!
A few weeks ago team A & M (andy & mauri) started training for the Magic City half Marathon this November. Man has it been a struggle. The heat and humidity down here is terrible for training. I have been lucky to hobble my way through three miles lately. Today the weather has seemed to break and I am hoping for some easier runs in the future.
The one positive note on running is that with very generous gifts from my family for my birthday I have purchased a GPS watch! I have only been able to use it once because of the plague but I absolutely love it. After a lot of research I ended up going with the Tomtom multisport. It’s great for triathletes on a budget and can measure distance and heart rate for all three sports. I am really hoping to up my game this year with some heart rate training.
Side life update I have started a second job at Pier 1 on top of babysitting. Still looking for my next career move but in the mean time this will help our income tremendously! Now that we have money coming in I should be able to start my long list of projects around the apartment. Super excited!
I am going to do a lovely post on Paleo in the near future but to hold you over till then here is my favorite recipe so far!
