I am nuts!

So since my 5 & 1's on Thursday night went so well, I thought I would run to work on Sunday morning, since I was working.

First, the good news: it went ok, considering it was mostly uphill. 4.1k in 41 minutes. And it felt really good, except my glutes. They hurt. Lots. But I will be running HOME from work tomorrow night which means: All downhill. Ah woohoo!

Now the bad news: did I mention it was all UPHILL. I mean seriously, who decided to live here? Who? Oh right, we did! I guess it means Mississauga will be a cake walk right?

And the ugly: Killer migraine yesterday. One of the WORST that I have had in YEARS. There was nausea, aura, dizziness and the worst pain. I left work a half hour before my shift ended, I couldn't even make it one half hour. Came home and went straight to bed until about seven. Yuck. I have my next neurologist appointment on Wednesday and I am looking forward to finally working on making these more manageable. But you know 25+ years of these things, I am a little skeptical.

Okay guys, I need some help. Hubby's birthday is this weekend and money is tight. I want to do something special for him. Any ideas? He is the best husband and father in the world and I really want him to know how important he is to us! Thanks guys!

Great job on that run!! The hills will make you stronger! I hope the run home from work goes well also!

My brain is much right now... it's 1am and I need to go to bed! No ideas right now, but let me know if I can do anything to help! Are going out for Colin's B-day?

Nice job on the hills...I notice hills, even small inclines everywhere I go now.
What about a 'memory mug' from Starbucks? You can write whatever you want on it and then you 'bake' it. I did that for my hubs as he is horrendous to buy for.
