The ice on the footpath is not nice.
And something about this kind of weather sets my migraines off. I was miserable yesterday. Less miserable today, though the migraine is still hovering behind my eyes.
I managed to get up and go to the gym, though, so that's great. It's also much needed as Tuesday at training killed my thighs so badly I couldn't walk for four days. It was genuinely the worst pain I've been in for a long while, and it worried me a little. Usually I can see some improvement in function by day 3. Day 2 hurts the most, but day 3 usually has drastic improvements. That was not the case, this time. It wasn't until yesterday that I could walk down the stairs with only a twinge, and that was only after I ate food with a butt load of salt in it. And here I thought I was trying to be healthy by cutting down on my salt intake. Turns out, I needed more than I had.
It was so bad that I skipped the rest of training, both my own gym time and training with my kung fu school.
But it's all good now. I can walk without much muscle pain, and I was at the gym this morning. I should be back to normal by tomorrow. That's good.
My week off writing has come to an end. Soldier is in the hands of my second beta reader, and I have another manuscript left to finish. Today I get back to it. I haven't much left to write for this manuscript, and I should be finished in the next few weeks. I say that, but I may not. Fingers crossed, though.
So that's my plan for today. I'm going to write some. I'm aiming for two thousand words, but I'll be happy if I get fifteen hundred. If I manage three thousand, I'm golden.
Two thousand is my goal. Wish me luck!
