The week in review:
Well, let's back up to last week, when our heroine was prescribed penicillin for a tooth infection. And she's also busy popping the ibuprofen like it's ... well, like it's good for her.
Monday: Two-hour eye doctor appointment, during which he made me blind. (Isn't that just wrong???) But said there's no reason I can't wear contacts! Some day. As soon as I save up. Imagine, seeing while swimming! Or while doing yoga! Or anything! Yay!
Tuesday: 6 a.m.: Butt-kicking spinning class. With butt-kicker instructor. With whom I made small talk afterwards in a sly attempt to woo him:
Me: Hey, I only wanted to barf once this morning! (Hmm. My wooing skills are a bit rusty.)
Fantasty spinning instructor: Ha. Ha.
Me (changing tactics): Hey, I did both those races last year (referring to the T-shirt he started with (the MCM) and then stripped off to display the Cherry Blossom 10-miler t-shirt underneath)! Aren't I clever! (I didn't actually say that last part.)
FSI: Oh. That's nice.
FSI is hilariously funny in between barking commands at us ("Push push push push push push" or "left right left right left right left right"). Tells us stories and stuff. So why didn't he laugh at my joke? WHY?
Wednesday: I RAN THREE MORE MILES!!! Outside, in the lightly falling snow. I overcame my fear of cold. Not my fear of ice, but of cold.
Thursday: 6 a.m. yoga. Lovely.
Thursdat: 3 p.m. - 6 p.m. Urology pre-op appointment. Let's move along...
Friday: 8:15 a.m. 4 degrees F. Trip downtown to see Foot Doctor. Yes, I have plantar fasciitis. How 'bout a nice shot of cortisone in that heel? But, Foot Doctor warned me, we can't do this more than once or twice.
This won't hurt a bit. Nurse Ratchett, pin her down!
So that hurt. For real. And still does. He also fixed my ridiculously expensive inserts again, to get rid of the bump in the right one that I swear is causing the PF.
Foot Doctor says: Stick with three miles for a while. No problem, say I, since in two weeks I will be gazing up at this sight:
No, no, it's on the RIGHT!
And then the real fun starts!
