Well, the front that came through Saturday night/Sunday morning stirred up the Oak pollen here and I haven't really felt well since Sunday night. I tried to get a bike ride in Monday, but with 20mph winds, a chill in the air and horrible allergies I only made it a little over 5 miles and called it quits. Tuesday I got no workout in due to a chiro appointment after work, picking Madison up from soccer tryouts and then getting her to her pre-UIL choir concert that lasted until 8pm. I felt so bad after that that I came home, put the kids to bed and went to bed myself. And proceeded to have a huge coughing fit at 1am and I'm not sure I ever fell back to sleep.
So, still feeling miserable today I decided to go to the doctor. With all the sneezing I've been doing I was pretty sure it was just allergies, but with Easter weekend coming up I wanted to make sure it was nothing else. Nope. Despite being on Allegra, Advair and Nasocourt I still had severe allergies to the Oak. So guess what I got? A good old fashion shot of steroids in the butt. My kids think it's funny. But I already feel better. Still not 100%, but good enough that I did a 30 minute bike ride while Madison was at soccer tryouts today and then I headed over to meet the team for hill repeats. I only made two hill climbs but that's ok. It's a hard hill even when allergies aren't bothering me. And before I go to bed tonight, I'm taking a cough syrup with codeine that the doctor prescribed. Here's hoping for a good night's sleep!
