"The notes I handle no better than many pianists. But the pauses between the notes - ah, that is where the art resides."
Today was hill repeats...
Newbie Anne (thinking): "Hmmm I have to do 3 hills today. I guess I'll have to do 4 because I'll be on the wrong side of the overpass and I won't be able to get back to my car."
Anne having an AHA moment: "OR, when I do my third hill, I can run up to the top of the overpass, turn around and come back the way I started...duh!" :)
Plus, although I'm still only 97% sure about this now...it was really not clear that 3 X 400m hills, meant 200m up and 200m down for a total hill. Right?
Asthma update for the interested:
The doctor only saw my test results on Monday (the nurse had given them to me on Friday) and he feels that the level of inflammation is such that I need to extend the prednisone treatment. So, instead of 30mg X 8 days...it is now 30mg X 10 days plus 15mg X 10 days. Plus, the inhalers have been changed again. I am taking a total of 18 puffs a day (3 X 3 puffs of Symbicort) and (3 X 3 puffs of Alvesco).
Let's just say that there's a reason I'm at the computer at 11pm, despite the fact that I work at 8:30am tomorrow morning. Although I just got back from yoga about 9:45, that is not why I am still bright eyed and bushy tailed. Both prednisone and the inhalers are stimulants...I'm feeling
a little very agitated and sleep is not an option just yet. My hands are shaking like an addict who needs a fix!
It should calm down soon...but, I'm definitely more hyper when I'm on this much crap.
So, 14 more days of prednisone...then I'll be left with the inhalers.
Mom, I know you'll be reading this. Do not worry. I am feeling fine. This is just a short setback and I'm actually not feeling sick. I promise! If you read the first part you know that I ran hill repeats today :)
