It's not looking good...

Today I got my glasses in the mail. I ordered some from eyebuydirect.com . They are cheap. I've always wondered why glasses are so expensive. I typically pay the same for a pair of glasses that I can buy a 42" TV for. Next year I'll be able to get a 50" TV for the same price. I don't get it. They can sell a computer for less than a pair of glasses.

Until I found eyebuydirect.com they sell cheap and I love it. I now order pairs all the time, just for the fun of it. I used to pay so much that I'd buy a pair and wear it for a year or three before getting a new pair. Now I'm buy all sorts of glasses. I'm even having fun and ordering glasses that I think will look terrible on me just for the fun of it.

Today I got my most ugly pair of glasses. I also got some prescription sunglasses for only $49.00. I've always wanted a pair of prescription sunglasses. These ones are Tom Cruise "Risky Business" style.

Training today was my first run in close to two weeks. I was hoping my pelvis was going to feel better. It didn't it hurt like hell and by the end of the run it's now even worse. I used to not feel it when I walked. Now I do. I've been doing research and it may be a stress fracture. I got some info from one of my twitter buddy's Jane and she described having the exact same problem.

I may have screwed it up so much that I'll feel it on the bike now. Hope not. If that's the case I can kiss doing IMMT away. If not, I can still bike and swim. Then show up knowing the run is going to be hard and a shuffle and hurt.

Food wise I got myself back on track today. Last night was my last night of beers for a while. All good things must come to an end.

Work wise there is lots going on and lots of stuff that is important and time sensitive. This injury is definitely going to help by giving me more hours in the day to get it all done.

Health wise I went to the cardiologist to get the results from the stress test. Good news is he doesn't think I have any issues and gave me a clean bill of health. He said I have a low heart rate, but that is normal for an athlete. He did mention that on my holster test there was times my heart rate got down to 32 bpm during sleep and that there was a blip during part of my sleep. It was alarming to me but he said not to worry it's common and nothing to worry about.

I also called an ART specialist I saw in 2010, the last time I had an injury. I'm travelling tomorrow so I scheduled a visit to see him on Thursday. I've come to the realization that I need a professional opinion and I'm not going to throw in the towel until I get one or more professional opinions

At this point I just want to be able to enjoy a pain fee run, like old times. I love running and this injury is a tough one to take.
