My average pace for most of my runs with Nike + have been over 13 minutes/mile which has frustrated me. Yes, I know, it's been hot and I have been pushing a stroller full of toddler for a lot of those runs but still. This morning I really wanted to get some faster runs in.
Yesterday I had a follow up appointment with my endodontist. Yay apicoectomy! I wasn't really nervous, I was told it would just be x-rays. Well I get there, the assistant takes me back, takes some x-rays then tells me to hang on. I am waiting and I hear him open up a package of tools. Now, if you've been to the dentist as much as I have you recognize sounds. Seriously, I could tell you what the damn needle they use for Novocaine sounds like, TRUST ME. When I heard that sound I started to get nervous, like "hey, why do you need tools?". I could feel myself tensing up. A few minutes later the assistant comes back in and says, "Ok, you're all set." Holy mother of pearl, man, why did you open the damn tools?!? I go back in a year for one last check up to make sure everything healed well. I'd like to say other than my cleaning in October that will be my last dentist appointment for a while but I know better. In fact, a tooth I've had some issues with for a few months has still been bothering me, even after getting a filling, etc, so I'm thinking I'll be told I need another root canal. Again, when you've had as much work as I've had you learn the signs pretty quickly. Stupid teeth.
And that was a wonderful non-fitness related side note. You are all very welcome. Happy Thursday!
