I have learned a few things from this past week though.
1. We take our health for granted. I spent all weekend in bed, sore, tired and doped up on antibiotics and pain pills. I couldn't wait to get out of bed and come to work today.
2. Running is in my blood. I never (ever) thought I'd say that, but all week the one thing I missed most was running. I need to remember this on the days I don't feel like running.
3. I like being active much more than being sedentary. Sure, laying around all weekend sounds nice, but I definitely craved sunshine, interaction and fun. I need to remember this when I feel like I've taken on too much.
4. My doctor is awesome. That really doesn't have anything to do with the price of tea in China as a life lesson, but it's true.
I have a follow-up appointment in just a few minutes. Fingers crossed I can lace up my running shoes again soon!
