So what has been giving me the shits this week?
Last Saturday was not a great a day at all ... FFS
I was all geared up to do my long run, set my alarm, and it didn't go off ... FFS
I'm normally awake at 5am these days anyway but when I woke up and saw that it was 6.32am, I panicked like a crazy woman ... FFS
This is what time the babysitter should be knocking on the door ... FFS
Anxiety kicked into gear, because I usually like to have a coffee and my breakfast in peace and quiet before I set off for a run ... FFS
I'm fast learning runners are organised creatures of habit. A very foreign notion for me ... FFS
Maggie wakes up at this point too, so I'm trying to get us both organised and failing ... FFS
At 6.45am I start to wonder where the hell the babysitter and she then sends a text saying she's too sick to come ... FFS
Never mind, I popped Maggie into Bob with some breakfast to go and off we went ... FFS
We just did an easy 10kms, with a stop at the swings and the markets to pick up some laksa and of course her weekly pink macaron ... No FFS
I was out of sorts for the rest of the day ... FFS
I went for my long run the following Tuesday instead and knocked 11 minutes off my half marathon time and ran for 23.5kms ... No FFS
It was incredibly hot by the time I finished just after 9am, my legs were screaming and I was slightly delirious ... FFS
There was no time to feel sorry for myself though because my fake US shipping address had apparently worked ... No FFS
The parcel had been freighted from Florida to Darwin in less than 36 hours. I was more than impressed ... No FFS
It then sat at Darwin airport for 48 hours ... FFS
I stayed home all day Tuesday because the notification said it was on board with driver at 7am .. No FFS
It was delivered at 5pm ... FFS
Maggie caught on quickly to my incessant whinging about my sore legs ... FFS
Every 5 minutes she said 'I am upset. I am not feeling very well, my legs are sore, and I need to see the doctor. NOW MUMMY' ... FFS
I rediscovered some of my old nursing skills ... RICE
Ice in riesling
Compression calf sleeves
I think the riesling surpassed any other pain relief ... FFS
The next day I should have gone for a recovery jog but for the first time ever, even my quad muscles were crying ... FFS
So I went for one yesterday and got to try out my new running shoes ... FFS
Giant fluffy pillows.
Normally with sore legs they warm up 10 minutes into a run and I can't feel the pain, not so yesterday ... FFS
But it doesn't matter because we flew to Bali late yesterday ... No FFS
HB told me he was working from home all day yesterday to help me get organised for our trip away. Bless him ... No FFS
He left home at 7.30am, and I didn't see him again until just before we left. Mofo ... FFS
I think I've packed everything we need. I even put some Milo in a little baggie ... No FFS
I was going to put our Good Green Stuff powder in a little baggie too, but I thought twice ... FFS
I don't need Mercedes Corby following me around Bali like a sniffer dog on heat ... FFS
I know you have zero empathy for me right about now ... No FFS
You can bet your bottom dollar that by the time you're reading this I've already had my first massage ... No FFS
Normally in Bali you get pestered and pestered until you succumb to a crappy manicure and pedicure ... FFS
I have three black toenails about to fall off, calluses and blisters ... I don't think I will be bothered much ... FFS
I'm hoping a fish spa will clean up my feet nicely ... FFS
But I'm afraid if I pop my feet in there, the poor critters will all die in seconds ... FFS
Cheaper than mofo therapy.
Cheaper than mofo therapy.
