A busy few days …

I managed to complete a 40-minute home workout tonight, but it was the first for the month, and the first exercise for the last three days.

The lurgy seems to have receded, beaten by my indomitable will maybe.

A visit to the skin specialist on Tuesday and the biopsy result was in. Discoid eczema with a resident staphylococcus infection is the official diagnosis. The biopsy stitch was removed also. The following visit to the chemist resulted in the biggest swag bag of medicinal products I’ve ever seen including multiple packages of antibiotic and steroid tablets, topical steroid ointment, antibacterial ointment and emollients. The good news is that the treatment appears to be working with the itchiness almost gone and the appearance improving. The bad news is my medical and moisturiser routine has added about 15 minutes to my start and end of day, and it is recommended that I stay out of the pool until it is cleared up completely.

The last couple of nights have been relatively internet free, seemingly my exercise mojo has taken my internet mojo with it, wherever it has gone.

Last night I played taxi to the kids who were at Rod Laver Arena for Russell Brand. I had some farewell drinks for a retrenched workmate in Fitzroy in between dropping them off and picking them up, so it worked out quite well. On returning home I had a late night teleconference that went until after 1:30am this morning.

I’m flying down to Burnie tomorrow for the day, so it is likely to be another exercise free day.

    Well, at least you are fitting in your workouts where you can! I haven’t been working out as hard as I normally do, I don’t know why, I just don’t have it in me the last two weeks or so!!! Maybe because it got so damn cold and rainy here again!!!!

    Hooray for “indomitable will”. Sounds like something Monkey Magic might do.
