Time to get up

Just catching up on some "Freakonomics:"

Actually now that Alan's through reading it, I think I'll check it out. But right now I'm deep into a murder mystery called "Monkeewrench" that DeeBee recommended, and it's AWESOME. I may have a new murder/mystery/detective series to read. That's mostly what I've been doing the past couple of days, since I've been lacking the motivation to do much more than breathe. Can't explain it, it's not a big deal, and it will pass.

I've decided a mean spirit is doing whatever possible to keep me from walking and running. It wants me to be lazy and get fat. First it was tendonitis, now it's a lingering case of shin splints. But yesterday was the last day I had to take the "fat pills," so I have motivation to keep going and see if this exercise will finally result in a leaner body.

The best thing for shin splints is ice. I take a small paper cup, fill it with water, and freeze. Once it is frozen I peel back some of the cup and massage the ice into my shins. Peel the cup back as the ice melts. I used to find it helpful when I would get them. Hope you feel better soon.

And what I've learned from the orthopedic doctor is not to rub the ice on in that fashion for more than 5 minutes at a time, since it has direct contact with the skin.

Monkeewrench is a great read. I still need to pick up the next in the series.
