Dinsdag

 

1. Not a C25K day

 

2. What journal?

 

3. Computer off at 9:38, in bed at 9:45, lights at 10:21, awake at 1, awake at 3:40, alarm at 4:45, up at 5:00

 

4. While lying on my stomach fixing water pipes I managed to strain something in my ribs. It does not hurt much, but I am always aware of it. Walking is fine, but I cannot lie on my back or left side. But water is on and working.

 

I now own two more (scrap) hammers.

 

Staying away from Youtube confuses their AI computer. It now recommends that I watch someone's nipple jewelry collection. 

 

We will not talk about the fries.

Probably the ligaments around/between the ribs. Give it min.3 weeks. Good going fixing the pipes though. It's unfortunately part of life.

I both am amazed by your nightly routine (same goal here and same habit of waking up early but way less success so far) and laughed at your Youtube adventure. Take care of your back.

 

 

Legally bound to hug people in need.

 

Living life as a Druid is about walking with the beasts. It's about being scared, looking your fears in the eyes and going on anyway. Dread doesn't go away, you just learn to know it. It's still a beast, it still has fangs, but you walk among it.

It is not the first time, I have forgotten how painful it can be. I think the worst part is there is absolutely nothing you can do except wait for it to stop hurting.

I have found it takes a few weeks before the benefits of enough sleep kick in. And then suddenly I have got more energy and start going to bed later and then I am back in the shadows again.

 

Woensdag

 

1. C25K week 5 day 2

 

2. Journal?

 

3. Computer off at 9:40

In bed at 9:55

Lights at 10:15

Awake at 2:38

Woke at 4:30

Alarm at 4:45

Up at 4:58

Total sleep: 6:15 minus the awake time. Not enough

 

4. The water pipes seem to be holding up. The one small place I have been worried about has stopped oozing. 

 

Miracles sometime do happen. I just wish it wasn't so small and would happen more frequently.

 

But of course life make some things go backward. Oh well.

Ja, it happened to me last year during the Muddy Princess, but I only felt the pain afterwards. Took 6+wks to get better, but the situation that you can't do anything to make it better was the worst.

True! We have to get out of this cycle somehow! I find that I need 8hrs of sleep to actually feel refreshed the next morning. I can cope on 6hrs, but not for long.

 

Praying for more miracles to come your way!

Those cases are super impressive! This ^^^ is a problem I would love to have to be able to fit the new shelves in. Enjoy!? Just think how good it will look afterwards.

It was acceptable. I did not expect much, and the movie doesn't try to be good but I am not eight years old anymore. The continuity errors were irritating. I have now seen 3 and 2, maybe I should watch 1 as well.

 I think we are all members of the "make injuries worse club".  Not sure why, but when I get hurt I always have to get worse before I get better.  A not so useful trait.

 

On the other hand, the stubbornness that leads to the above behavior is also how I've accomplished the good things I have done.  

 

I have seen the Expendables.  It went from pretending to be an action series to being a comedy that had action elements.  There is no realism at all.

And the forum decided to unfollow me from almost everybody.

No reason to make yourself feel sorry, you are allowed things you like too. It looks like you've had a great day, congrats!
