I'm back from LA! It was a great trip, but two not-so-great things happened:
1) When UW got a last-minute field goal to win the game, I started jumping around. A ton. Apparently I hit my calves on the wooden bench (with a metal bar-thing on the bottom), because I woke up Sunday morning to my calves looking like this:
The one on the left is knobby and HUGE. The one on the right goes all the way around almost to the front of my leg. Both are sore to the touch.
2) We went to Magic Mountain Six Flags on Sunday to ride rollercoasters. I felt a bit off - but chalked it up to not sleeping well + the heat + my aching calves.
Nope, it was a full-blown cold coming on. I drugged up for the flight home, and am working from home today due to NO sleep last night. (Seriously. Wide awake at 4am. I have the outbound work emails to prove it.)
So, I leave for NYC in 5 days. I have a bunch of errands to do, a ton of important work meetings...and am on the couch hacking up a lung with a pillow behind my knees & ankles.
