Nearing the End …

Day 29.  National Blog Posting Month.

As this month draws to a close, I have wondered what my postings will be like in December.  Can I continue the daily posts?  Will I take a break from the blogosphere or will I soldier on?

The decision was taken out of my hands.  I’ve had my first request to write about specific topics and I plan to tackle those in December.  A friend from medical school messaged me the other day asking that I write about sleep training, having more than one child, and balancing work/home life. I am certainly no expert in any of these topics, but I can draw from personal experience and together with a bit of research, I think I can offer my readers some food for thought.   These are all great topics and I thank her for suggesting them.  You know who you are!

So, today I got to sleep in for about an hour and what a blissful hour that was!  I spent the morning at the local electronics store with my best boys to pick up some new cordless phones. It was a beautiful, crisp sunny morning.  For the first time in a week I didn’t feel completely exhausted.

We got back around noon and I decided it was a great afternoon for a run.  I suited up, had my route planned out in my head and went for it.  Twenty-seven odd minutes later, I was home again, having run my furthest distance yet, a whopping 3.4 kilometers.  I ran intervals of 3:1 (run/walk minutes) but the last five minutes I have it everything I had an ran it straight home.  I was so proud of myself!  Despite the cold air and my burning lungs, I was able to run again for five minutes.  That felt great!!!  It’s a sign that my physical endurance is returning and it’s happening much faster than I thought it would.

Yet, despite the great feeling I had during and just after my run, suddenly a profound fatigue has fallen upon me and I desperately feel like I need a nap.

Baby steps, right?

  1. Awesome job on the run! I’m looking forward to some of these upcoming topics – all things that are important to think about when having kids in medicine 🙂
