Update on my Tylenol PM attack
I thought I was do for my yearly check-ups so I figured I'd just talk to my doctor about it then. But it turns out I was late on them last year so now they won't give them to me because it hasn't been a year since I had them. Well, poop!
I just made an appointment to talk about my issue directly instead.
My doctor said that, if my liver, kidney and heart are okay, than having something like this happen even one more time would be okay. (She didn't say what it would mean if it continued to happen beyond that but the implication was that regular ongoing attacks were bad.) However, we have to know my liver, heart and kidneys are okay.
This is a problem because she wants me to scale back my working out to about 40% of what I have been doing until the test results come in.
And that's a problem because I have the Folsom Sprint AquaBike this weekend. Which is not a 40% effort. It's more like a 150% effort. In fact, I've been stressing a bit over the fact that the bike ride is 19 miles and I've only done 15 miles maximum. Not to mention we're having an Open Water Swim clinic on Saturday and I was planning on camping in the area that weekend. But that all together and we're talking a 200% weekend.
Guess it's all off now.
I'll still do the swim clinic. That will be my 40%. But that's it. At least for the next two weeks.
Anyone want a free entry into the Folsom Sprint?
