Root Canal

It's not a leisurely place to float by in a gondola... it's a throbbing pain in my mouth.

I got my dentist to squeeze me in for an appointment and she diagnosed my sore face as a much needed root canal.  She sent me off with a prescription for Tylenol 3's and antibiotics, but my appointment for relief is only on May 18th.

I'm worried I'm not going to make it without climbing up a clock tower... *sigh*  I've missed a few days work because I can't sleep, but tomorrow I need to make an effort to go in.... and it's close to midnight and I still can't sleep.  Awesome.

Last week I only ran twice and my second run was a pathetic 2km that I forced myself to do amidst the pounding in my head.  Tonight I missed my clinic run, bah... I'm such a wuss when it comes to pain, especially pain in my head.

Antibiotics, Advil and Anebesol are my companions for the next week (at least) and I'm hoping that the throbbing will die down enough for me to get in some training. *fingers crossed*

Okay, I'll try and stop whinning now :D
