Back to work

It still surprises me the impact that antibiotics have on me. I had been on a steady dosage for my strep throat and it just brings me down - not just physically, but mentally as well. If you can imagine taking a pill that makes you fall out of love, that would be the effect antibiotics have on me. I basically lose my zest for life - nothing seems fun and I become the most unmotivated person in the world.

So like any good patient, I stopped taking my dosage half-way through the prescription Guess what. I feel great.

It's time to get back to work and put some mileage on the feet. My first race is less than 6 weeks away and I'm fairly sure I'll be under-prepared but that's OK. The goal is to have fun and enjoy the venue. It will be my first run at the Cave Creek Regional Park.



  1. Dude, totally know what you mean. Just got off two weeks. Posted about it on my blog today. Hope you are feeling better (sounds like you are). Keep up the good fight!!

  2. I hope your training is going well. Glad that you are feeling better. How is the Meralgia Peristhetica (MP) treatment going? I think I have that in my left thigh, any stretches that you can suggest would be really appreciated.
