The good Dr. gave me a lecture about overdoing it and allowing myself to recover properly. Apparently, face planting while skiing doesn't go well with a bulging disc and I need to back off until I'm further along with recovery. I've been here before and I've worked through it before so I know I can get better, I just need to be patient. I've got three more weeks until I start officially training for the Vancouver 1/2 so I've got plenty of time to get smart. I can be pretty stupid though so we'll see!
My Dr. is a triathlete so he's very understanding about an active lifestyle, but he doesn't hesitate to tell me to back off. He also dropped the "surgery" bomb again but I'm not open to that yet. The tingling in my hand is gone, it's just muscle strain bothering me. WAH. Get over it.
Marshall likes to help me recover on the couch, he's an A+ cuddler. I think we'll go for a walk at noon today so I stay away from the pool and running. IT SNOWED HERE YESTERDAY just one day after the warmest day we've had in months. We had doors and windows open on Sunday, then snow sprinkling down on Monday. Marshall might get to see snow sooner than we thought! Here's a pic of Ms. Kitty laughing at Marshall getting a bath.
