took a break, busy with life but way too busy I think.
Migraines and neck pain/arthritis are taking a toll. I have been at least able to build on my IMAZ training but I cannot tell if it causing the neck and head to complain. Either way and possibly non coincidentally after my biggest training distance weekend including a run distance PR (14 miles) I had my worst pain and headache day of the year. It was different than my last few horrible migraines in that it actually brought me to tears. I just barely made it home after a busy clinic and I am done for the evening. . .
I strongly have been considering and have to consider shutting down the training and giving up on the goal of doing a full distance Ironman. We have a scheduled vacation to Tahoe to see great friends and the plan was to train while there including testing the wetsuit in the lake. Nope. I am in too much pain to feel down about this possibility so I am going to try to get through the clinic day tomorrow, prepare for our mini vacation/reunion and see what happens next week. I do have an appointment with my Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation doctor who I hope with inject the crap out of the neck and back to relieve the intense spasm but we’ll see.
Happy week ya’ll
