I recently wrote about the struggles that I have been having running, due to the new medication I am taking.
Well, I managed to run two days ago for a whoppingly great 2.7km. But – I felt okay. Not great. More tired than I should after less than 3km, but not ruined.
Is this a good sign? I hope so. I am going to perhaps try and run again tonight after the Neon Toddler is in bed, probably the same route, and see how I feel.
Then I will be taking all of this to the doctor on Friday to say… Hello! This is not cool! Running makes me feel better, it shouldn’t be one of the things that makes me feel worse.
I have also noticed that the exhaustion wears off more quickly in the morning and sets in less quickly in the evening. I managed to stay up until almost midnight last Saturday. A and I had a party (which was lovely!) but by around 10:30pm I was starting to get ready to go to bed. I wasn’t the best host going around as I spent most of the evening sitting down, but that happens.
There was only one sour note on the whole night (which was mostly expected, and I won’t go into detail about), but apart from that it went well (and most importantly my Pavlova was GREAT!).
Anyway – I had better get back to doing some actual work while I have the energy to do so!
