I think I've got shin splints. Has anyone ever had this?
Today is my Thursday.
It's annoying because I bought these expensive insoles that are supposed to prevent this kind of thing, but I think they might be causing it.
It's very frustrating and completely ruined my fitness as I wasn't able to go for runs anymore yet kept trying to, consequently making the shin splints worse. I don't think there's much you can do other than ensuring that you don't do much strenuous exercise. Swimming is meant to be good for it I think. Either way, I think generally the 'recovery' process is about 2 weeks?
Hope it gets better soon!
Like, MASSIVE. Feeling pretty relaxed about it right now but I'm fairly sure that I'll have a sudden, ostensibly completely untriggered panic attack about it later when the sheer LARGENESS of it hits me.
The world DOES need another juggler
No guts no glory!
WHICH ONE DK???
But I've pretty much committed myself to doing so in the near future.
In fact, my decision is likely to involve doing far less work for the next few months.
Yesterday sealed the deal on what looks like a very long term contract working across a whole of ecotech companies and campaigns. Fucking win.
mate from oop north stayed last night and the evening went as planned: sinking several lagers and then ordering a quite disgusting amount of KFC. Feeling pretty rough today.
Email i've been waiting for still hasn't arrived. Gonna give it til lunch then gonna chase that bad boy, like.
About how someone threw themselves in front of her train and how sad she was for that person that it came to that for them.
Someone replied quoting, and by quoting I mean in quotation marks, the circle of life speech from the lion king. They even signed it off 'Mufasa', like it was on a par with Plato or something.
I think they were being serious but it absolutely cracked me up and I'm probably going to hell now
whilst signing the register. and not ironically.
In any case, I don't even know what is/they are.
I've sliced the top of my thumb off. On the plus side I made my own granola last night and it's TASTY.
Waitrose's coffee machine is STILL BROKEN. Every day this week. It's just not on, guys.
in 48 hours I learn that my auntie killed herself and an old friend has cancer. And then, to top things off, my housemate throws my garlic bread away because he thought it was mouldy.
IT'S HERBS YOU TWAT.
I will join you on the 'shittest start to a week for a long while' bench. Hugs.
I'm not in despair or anything, just a bit shellshocked from two (three including the garlic bread) bits of utterly shit news. I'm seeing Fanfarlo tonight though, hooray!
however, had a horrendous nightmare. absolutely the worst i've ever had. quite incredible to think that last nights beat the Thomas the Tank Engine one from my childhood, but it really did. and no, i am not going to tell you what it was. :(
can you just give us a snippet?
Belfort's actions or tried to make you sympathise with him?
Look what was being 100% sincerely shared on my twitter feed this morning #inspiration
*hitS button marked DESTROY ALL HUMANITY*
filed under `Anything Is Possible` - they had to go and pick that one :D
Wonder if Belfort's gonna be like the new Ayn Rand or something.
Work called me to tell me i didn't get the internal job I interviewed for.
Safe to say I'm having a little bit of a shit week so going to wallow in bed all day.
Massage the shins loads and youtube some stretches
it got slightly moved which meant that no-one apart from me could go, so it got rearranged for today, so I left all my stuff in London to save lugging it back and forth. today they've changed their mind again, and it's online so I could have done it from my normal office. ergh.
BUT not all bad - I went to see wolf of Wall Street (very good) with a couple of friends, one of whom I've not seen for ages, and it was really good and it cheered me up loads. I like it when stuff works out.
had a kit kat (4 finger), won a free kit kat. result.
last night on fast-forward in under 40 minutes. i feel like i might be losing the love.
lovely rehearsal last night, ready to start playing out and recording the album now. genuinely enjoying it.
i've no idea what to do at work today as i did all of my work for the entire week yesterday and the rest of the crew are out on a shoot. maybe some writing.
my g/f took her class to the zoo yesterday and apparently the bus on the way there and back was awash with kiddy puke.
pretty grumpy today, haven't even had any coffee (!)
thought i was gonna have a nice chilled day of prep today for starting a big project tomorrow but nooo, let's pile on shitwork at the last minute that we could have given you weeks ago.
...got some networking thing in edinburgh tonight that i could totally do without as i want to watch the football, and can't be fucked going to edinburgh.
Ezra Furman tomorrow night which i am really looking forward to.
I am wearing a new tie today, i very much like it.
having a good day today. In a weird way that makes it worse.
I don't think Nice biscuits are very DiS.
I had a similar breakdown yesterday. I had a cup of tea and a Nice biscuit. It was alright.
Sort your life out.
They're like thin shortbread erm, thins.
I think you're still having a breakdown and need to get hold of some chocolate hobnobs asap.
if I had a nice biscuit I'd just feel worse, they're a bit rubs.
Whilst that would be understandable, I didn't mean it x
but if you vaguebook any harder you're going to burst into flames
EMO is on snapchap? Heh, EMO.
which weirdly no-one seems to have a problem with
but weirdly this entices me.
I know much more about fap's life than I did when I started too.
like me broadcasting watching of project runway or something.
That's only at weekends, she's better to look at than me for the most part.
also, I feel we've done badly with the comedy potential of SNAPCHAP tbh
it was more of a realisation this morning, then I went with it to guilt trip Chintz because she's a dick.
(love you chintz)
Looks shit. Like Phillipe Coutinho's old hair on top and Phillipe Coutinho's new hair on the sides.
Can't be fucking arsed. Going home.
I'd never make it in if that were the case.
My hair is normally pretty shit, I'm okay with that part.
I've spelt Philippe Coutinho wrong twice. This is the worst day ever.
Or can anyone explain why the prices fluctuate so fucking much?
About 2 weeks a go I got two singles. One from Hull to Chelmsford and the other vice-versa. It cost about £40.
I'm booking a return now for the same journey and it's costing £74. Also, it costs £71 for a single yet £74 for a return. MADNESS!
feel quite floaty.
when i tried to start running before, a couple of years ago i went in too hard, too fast and totally fucked them up. so i know how horrible the shin splints can be.
