It is nearing on Sunday afternoon and I have to say this has been a pretty darn good weekend. Nothing really spectacular to tell you about, rather just a good couple of days spent enjoying the good stuff in life.
I did get out for a quad-busting and lung-burning run yesterday that really left me feeling so happy to be getting closer to healthy and farther away from sick. I went to my usual stomping grounds just off Woodroffe for a 40 minute run through the woods. Well with the warmish weather and recent days of rain, the snow has gotten very soft. This turned my run into a challenging work-out and left me enjoying the "runner's high". Problem I'm having right now with the running are the nasty blood blisters on the bottom of my feet - they look ugly and feel worse. Suppose a bit of duct tape will prevent the friction.
Rest of Saturday was very Saturday-like - errands, napping, newspaper reading and reading magazines for free. We ended the day with a very enjoyable supper at the Dolsot Cafe with friends. The Dolsot Cafe is a Korean restaurant at Bank and Catherine St. The food is very good with tasty sidedishs such as kimchi, fish pancake and seaweed. I think everyone was very happy with their meals and the service was very good. Definitely a place that we will return to.
Today is shaping up to be another good day. I did a hard two hours on the rollers this morning. Again no complaints here - all signs that I'm getting better and back to my usual self. Marc is just heading out to Kemptville to hook up with some like-minded folks for his first outdoor ride of the Ottawa summer racing season. I'm jealous of course - but it is probably a bit ambitious for me to be riding with others right now.
I realize that I forgot to tell you the good news about my health. It looks like the Imuran is doing its job since my CRP levels (measurement of inflammation in the body) are below 1 right now - two weeks ago, these levels were above 6. Only issue I'm still dealing with is the ferritin and associated anemia. But hopefully with continued iron infusions we can get this sorted out. I can't speak highly enough about the nurses at the Ambulatory Clinic at the Queensway-Carleton Hospital.
Alright, this is all I've got for today. One thing I'm trying to figure out is how to get Shelagh Rogers to ready my book so I can be on the Next Chapter. Any thoughts on this?
