Hanging in there ...

I don't have much enthusiasm lately but I am still trying to find it wherever I can. This lack of enthusiasm is definately the Interferon. Drugs are stupid but more Cancer is not an option, so I will take the drugs.

Jim's back is much better and he has been going to the physical therapist to strengthen it up and make sure the disc returns back to it's normal spot. He went to Dr. Wagner and he said that the hernia was small, "Come back in a month and let me check it again." Dr. Wagner feels that urgery can wait for now. I know Jim is doing better because he has been back on the bike and the BMW motorcyle this week. He would do that unless he was pain free!

The weekend was a bit of a wash in terms of a long run. Friday I had energy for naps only and Saturday I SLUGGED through 3 miles of run/walk intervals. By the time Sunday bloomed hot and humid, I had opted for a short walk. The hightlight of the weekend was having friends over for an tiny "Tour de France - Stage 17" get-together. That was great fun!

I'm feeling funky today and trying to add an extra hour to the work day. So far, it's a little harder than I thought it might be. Still it's better than being on high-dose and I am 2 weeks down with only 46 to go!

Living STRONG but a little sleepy.

in this heat everybody is sluggish, so don't fret it's not just you, but i'm sure the interferon adds insult to injury. keep strong it's just a matter of weeks!

i think the frommage et "peru" adds to the sleepiness. at least i'm blaming my sleepiness on too much cheese lately! at least you have a nice cozy bed and don't have to sleep on the dining hall tables. you're still my hero and my inspiration even when you yawn.

You are doing so well! And, you workout in the July heat. I feel like a complete slacker. No more whining from me.

Watching a tour stage counts as a workout, right? I mean, my HR goes up as I watch those guys climb the mountains...
