Finally, some exercise!

No run, but I did get to the gym. Had a 300m swim, a 45 minute bike ride and used the weight machines for my upper body. All very gentle and barely broke into a sweat, but at least I did something.

I am so looking forward to my run on Saturday and will now not be tapering for the MM the following Sunday.

The doc fleeced me for another $60 although he did confirm that I have a trapped nerve in the groin area, though how he knows this without even looking at my numb thigh is beyond me. I can get $34 back from Medicare and I prefer the non bulk billers as I get to see my doc at the appointment time rather than some bulk billing doc’s making me wait for an hour or more.

I have the house to myself tonight as the boys are having a sleepover and Michelle’s in Sydney for three days. Whilst I love having the family around me, it’s bliss without any noise or disturbances. Takes me back to days before I met Michelle (16 years ago!) when I lived alone in my unit in Kew, I hardly knew a soul in Melbourne but I had myself and I either liked my own company or grew used to it.

A “don’t you hate that” moment

Earlier this month a relative asked me to buy some flights for him and his family. I guess he was uncomfortable in the process and the logistics of it all. Anyway paid for it on my Amex charge card – he then gave me the cash in the first week of September – I duly spent it and now it feels like I’m spending my own money to pay the bill which is due tomorrow! arrgh!

    If you’re not confident in your docs opinion, get another one! Did he give you some advice on recovery program?

    Think about it this way: do you really want someone peering at your groin, numb or otherwise? Actually, don’t answer that.
