2 miles @ work (11:24)

Comments: My family doctor thinks I pulled a muscle (rectus abdominis) and that’s why I hurt (I do not agree), and I was too flustered to say anything. He suggested physical therapy. My Gyno doesn’t know why the left pelvis/ovary area is still sore, so he’s referring me to a specialist. I asked him if it is ok for me to run and he said yes unless the pain gets worse.

I was in moderate pain on Saturday and Sunday, it eased up Sunday afternoon. So today I went for a run; I needed to get out and didn’t let cold weather stop me. I enjoyed the run and hope to do it again soon. We are suppose to get 3 to 7 inches of snow tonight through tomorrow so I don’t think I’ll be running then (no, I don’t have skies).

Nancy, thank you for your comment on pain leading to depression, I didn’t even think of that. Make so much sense though. So now when I get down I try to tell myself that there are people out there who are in worse shape then me and that I should stop feeling sorry for myself! 🙂 And it helps that I have a very supportive husband! All the support I have received, be in via blog on irl is appreciated.

They are back

The pains are back. I have an appointment with my family doctor tomorrow and I requested my OBGYN appointment to be moved up, so that’s on Friday.

I am so tired of this. I think I have aged 5 years in the last 5 weeks. lol “Calgon…take me away!

Hurry up and wait

Went to the doctor: after the examination (diagnosis: cyst) he scheduled me for an ultra-sound to be done Thursday because it’s all too tender on the left side for him to do his ‘touchy feely thing’ and he can’t tell exactly what’s going on. So, if I am still with cyst and in pain on Thursday, he’ll schedule me for a laparoscopy on Friday; out patient surgery.

However, after going through all the scheduling and such, he got the results of the CAT scan (which I had done elsewhere last week), which read that I had a fluid like, 3 mm big buildup on my RIGHT side. Hmmm, it’s my LEFT side that is in pain. Apparently it made perfect sense to him and in turn seemed less concerned. He is under the impression that my pains will go away in the next two days. Gosh I hope he’s right!

That’s it…end of report! To be continued Thursday afternoon. I am relieved that it is nothing urgent, but on the other hand I wish it was so I can do something about it, because I am in pain. Once again I have to sit and wait!

2008 – It can only get better

The reason for such a long break in posting is because I have been dwelling in my own misery for the last two weeks:

I am dealing with some ‘female issues’ after a CAT scan found something in my pelvis area. Initially the (urgent care) doctor thought I was passing a kidney stone, but going by the scan that doesn’t appear to be the case.

I never would thought I’d say that I am looking forward to an OB/GYN appointment, but let me tell you, I am now! The pain in my lower abdomen comes and goes and when it hits it is not pleasant. I am ready to tackle what ever it might be and move forward. The doctor’s appointment is tomorrow. woot!

So, needless to say I have not run since it started. Of course I had to get this during the holidays; businesses are closed, results are processed slower, and my OB takes a week off. *sigh* AND, to add to my misery I got a nice head cold going on right now.

Here is to hoping that 2008 only gets better and that my aches are only a minor thing! 🙂

2.3 at work (11:36)

Comments: Leg still hurts, but I had to get out and run. The right leg was tight, and then my right shin started to hurt. I have to assume because I was (unintentionally) striking the ground differently. So I walked a bit, stretched the shin muscle and finished up.

Shoes: Saucony

Distance: 2.3

Time: 26:39

Split: 11:36

5 miles @ home (10:47)

Comments: I had so much crap to do today, but I HAD to get my 5 miler in there. After all it was ONLY 5 miles. So with frustrations build up during the day I tried to run it all off and I sure did. I pushed myself the whole way. This has to be a PR for 5 miles at home! (Edit: I checked and it is a PR – woot!)

My right leg was tight in the beginning, my calve muscle hurt for a while and then it moved to the front of the leg, but it didn’t turn into any antagonizing pain, so I pushed through it. I am happy about this run because my 22 miler was so incredible slow.
