|Doesn't that look awesome?|
It swelled up in less than a minute and caused my co-workers to freak out just a little. Believe it or not, it didn't hurt at all. I got a little dizzy after I hit my head, but I think that had more to do with the fact that I ran 9.3K yesterday morning and did a fat burning workout (didn't eat before hand), then only ate 3 hard boiled eggs on my drive into work. Not enough of a recovery meal. I laid down in the sick room for a half hour with an ice pack on my forehead before I went out to get something to eat, then I resumed my regular work schedule. I saw a client at 3pm and by then my forehead looked like this.

I woke up this morning, so all was well. I promised our health and safety rep at work that I would go and get checked out at the urgent care center, but I didn't. I felt fine all day. I didn't black out or throw up. I just had a wicked goose egg for a couple of hours. No biggie. I'm not gonna lie. The first thing that popped into my head was "Is his going to affect my running schedule". If I felt off at all, I would have gone to urgent care, but I was fine. She wanted me to go right away and have someone either drive me home or come and pick me up. She was lovely, but a little over cautious.

I will tell you what I don't like about the summer. Running in hot and humid weather. I am so motivated to run as many early mornings as I can that it's not even funny. I will take the cold over the humidity anytime. Nothing messes with my breathing more that the humidity. Those minus 18 Celsius runs this past winter are not looking so bad right now. I say this now, but trust me, come winter I'll be bitching and moaning about the cold again. Marathon training starts Sunday!!!!!!!
I notice things in the blogiverse are somewhat quiet right now. I hope it solely has to do with people being busy and having lives (unlike me), and not too much struggling is going on. I know that summer can be a hard time to stick to a diet, but it's also the time that you may want to look your best (bathing suit season). This is my second summer of health. I'm looking forward to the BBQ's because meat is my main staple. Less of a chance that I'll have to explain my eating habits to a host because there's usually always meat and salad at BBQ's.
