UPDATE: The Access Hollywood Airing of Eric & Seth here at FR has been postponed until Feb. 9th. They felt they would be a good "sweeps week" airing! So, you'll have to wait until then ... :)
Well, I didn't have such a great day today, except for my time on my Stop Sign Hike! I cut off 9 minutes from my 1st week's time of 1:32 and 1:27! Today's time up to the sign ... (drum roll please) ... 1:18! Woohoo! I was ecstatic! My new roommate did it in 1:10! She was running the treadmill all day as well! She'll do good this week! Then some of us that went up to Stop Sign got a ride back down to mini stop sign and walked all the way back to FR! That's a whopping 11.7 miles! However, I was in major pain on the last 2 or so miles.
When I got back to FR I was in dire pain (my knees and my left little toe). One of the new ladies here this week is a nurse practitioner and told me my little toe was infected. This goes back to week one for me when I had a major water blister on my toe and after a week of it, I popped it! It was "okay" during my 2nd and 3rd week, but really was painful today! It's swollen up like the size of 2 toes and now a little purple. So, I went to the Urgent Care ... yup, a staff infection of all things! I got a $100 prescription of Clindamycin and a major lecture from the doctor. So ... here's his input: He feels like the FR guests aren't educated properly enough on blister prevention. That we should be told to put moleskin on our hot spots (vs duct tape) and to have lots of it handy. He also told me to stay out of the pool and hot tub as chlorine doesn't kill all the little germs that could get into blisters and cause staff infections. I'm not infectious (unless it begins to puss ... which it never did). As far as my knee is concerned, he wants me to NOT HIKE 11.7 miles for the next few days ... right! This is my last week and I'm considering it "my last chance workout". LOL :) So, I don't know what tomorrow morning will bring, but I hope I can hike the Stop Sign in maybe flip flops or my Cross Training Shoes. I just won't be able to wear my hiking shoes for a few days until this swelling goes down! :(
6:00 am Yogalates

I'm still in bed with ice on my knees! That's how bad they hurt! My new piece of advice ... bring Icy Hot back patches. Cut them in half and put one on each knee when they hurt and it definitely helps out getting through the hikes! That's what I've been doing the last 2 hikes! They don't sell those patches here at the shop, but I got them at the local drug store! Definitely worth having some here with you!
Okay ... I'm off to bed ... more tomorrow!
P.S., Miss ya' roomie! I hope you had a good flight home and that the kids were still up for ya' when you got home! :)
