Huh…Just realized that it is Wednesday already.
It has been kind of busy at my work. My work has a charity committee every year and I decided to join this year. Well, Monday was the Central Illinois Community Blood Center fund raiser and blood donation event. It basically consisted of a portable unit called a Bloodmobile that was parked in our parking lot and a cookout with the proceeds being donated to the Center. My duty for the day was to man the grill. Sadly, the weather was kind of crummy so the turn out for the cookout was not that great. However, the Blood Center said the blood donation was better than they expected. Well, I wish we could have donated more money but the blood donation was great. Anyway, even though it was draining, I had fun.
I awakened this morning at my normal time around 3:00am and wanted to train this morning but decided to be lazy. Frankly, after the last couple of days, I was just not into it. Plus, I was a tad tight for some reason. Anyway, it was getting close to my son’s early morning feeding and since I was up, I scooped the little one up and headed too the family room. There was no reason that mom needed to be awakened by my sons crankiness from hunger. I have been pretty lucky about not waking him up and he does sleep a little more in the pack-n-play we have setup. So, when he finally does get cranky, he is far enough away from the bedrooms to not wake anyone up. I do enjoy feeding him in the morning (or…pretty much anytime), he is a cutie!
I digressed, I was a little mad at myself for not getting in my training mileage but noticed that it was raining outside. Well, come to find out, it had been raining all morning and I was better off staying in after all. So, that eased my mind a bit.
I have discovered a new trigger for a flare-up, rain or mist. As I found out in the Ade’s Able 10K, sprinklers and misters wreck havoc on me too. As I was driving to work my chest tightened up big time and boy did my lungs hurt. When I walked into the building I had a coughing fit for a few minutes. I am fine now, but, what the heck? I guess that is why I was so tight this morning. My PF seemed normal but felt like I did not get my Symbicort and Spiriva in, but I am pretty sure now that I did. If this is the case, spring and fall are going to be rough for me, fun!
This week health wise, other than feeling like I was breathing in a paper bag the last couple of days, I am feeling pretty decent other wise, definitely better than the first half of last week. Frankly, I’ll take all the good days I can get.
So, there you have it, my week so far…thanks reading
