Mobile Minutes: The Curse


You know how it is, your body goes through a repeating task enough times to adapts to the unique environment it’s in.

For Example: Let’s say I get up for work at 5:30 AM, Monday through Friday and 4:00 AM on Saturday. What time does my body ‘wake up’ on Sunday?

Right around 5:00 AM.

Hence me typing this out…

Mobile Minutes: Taxing


I’m feeling it…
During the day I’ve been inside a school each day this week, and Monday’s training session in the evening just flat lined me.

So...much...paint...

I’m struggling…
The motivation is real, but my body is just wiped out physically each night. I’m worried that pushing it will lead to injury, and with season changes that’s the last thing I need to deal with.
Additionally…
Icing and heat processes, along with taping for support have been going on for my Achilles. This stems from an injury back in April/March. Frustratingly, I’m still having problems. I can’t cut well in the corners, and accelerating “lift” off my left foot is extremely limited. I’m not moving 100%. Sure, times are dropping, but I know I’m holding back because of the pain.
So…
With back-to-back 5K races coming at the end of October I’ve decided to do the one thing I despise in the upcoming month.
I’m going to actually see a doctor…
I’m not really happy across the board right now, tons of stress, and I’m feeling slightly betrayed by my body.

Mobile Minutes: Sleeping House


Darco slept…I’m not kidding from 10:00 PM last night to 12:00 PM this afternoon. That would be a staggering 14 hours without getting up, once! I tagged on another 10 hours last night as well. Frankly, someone could have stolen “the dark one” and we would not have known due to sleep.

The light is at the end of the tunnel, I can see it, but our family is taking quite the beating in order to get there.

Mobile Minutes: Impatient


I’ve missed being at the office for three days this week. I missed out on the ALS ice bucket challenge, I missed out on pupusas El Salvador style…all because of this stupid cold.

All the nasty stuff has ended, minus a serious sinus issue in my head, and an occasional blocked ear. Sudefed didn’t meet my anticipation so I’m switching over to DayQuil to get this crud moving. The coughing has started, and I know that one place that I’m at serious fault for is not staying hydrated through all of this.

I’ve been reading up on sinus congestion, colds, the flu, etc…and you know what I’m learning? It’s not uncommon for this garbage to hang around for seven days. SEVEN DAYS! Forget that garbage, I’ll drug myself stupid to get out of this apartment tomorrow. My head may not be in it, but I’ve got to get out.

Mobile Minutes: Light At The End


I’m so over being sick…
Sudafed knocked out the clogged ear canal something quick. I was able to keep noodles down for lunch, so I consider that a small victory in itself. I did some very light stretching from the bedroom down the hall to the front door and back, just I could move.

The headache is still taking its toll at the moment, and I have been reduced to ZERO energy. Meaning, I made it down the hall twice before I was too tired to keep going.

I feel better, that much is true, but I still feel like absolute garbage.

On the bright side, at least this is thoroughly cleaning out my system.
