oh? how is training going? you mean, i was supposed to be swimming, biking, and running this past week? well, let me tell you that i would have loved to. in fact, it would have been ideal. but, instead, my "oh i bonked on friday" feeling was instead the beginning of being the most sick that I have been since January 2006, when I was in Liberia, and I had strep throat.
im talking about fever. achey body. sometimes energy so low that i couldn't stand up in the shower, or I had to sit on the kitchen floor to put my home delivered groceries away. everytime I would take a breath, i would have searing pain across my ribcage. the whole nine yards. how many days without doing much more than the essentials? 5. count 'em. 5 days of not training. ughghghgh. and, i don't know how many more days of "easy goes it." it is sure a stick in the mud. and, i don't like it. but, at least i am on the mend. so, my wine and cheeze goes away, and i get back to training. but, it was awful. i just want to say that. i hate being sick. esp cause i don't ever get sick. oh yeah. and, the doctor told me i have low iron. i gotta figure out what to do about that.
in other news.... i am done done done my thesis! (well, pretty much; i expect to have a few more edits before the defense, and then maybe a few revisions after the defense, but that is all minor compared to everything!!!)
defense date will be in about a month, and then this M.Sc is finito! it is about time. so, it should be about one more month of hard work and preparations, and then a deep exhale. how fricken exciting is that!??!?!
