Back home but a slight glitch!
Monday, February 27, 2012
Well, it was a fantastic cruise! I walked (around the buffet), and swam and had a great time. To make sure I didn't gain too much weight, I got sick for 12 hours and had little desire for food for the following 4 days. Even with that it was a great trip and vacation! The Caribbean is just like the pictures. The water is very salty though! We had the best time!
While I was sick, I got dehydrated and passed out. Had I been sitting, or in bed, it would not have been that bad, but I was standing up! This caused my head to hit a corner (lightly) and as I slid down the wall, I hurt my neck. I really don't remember the event. I heard a loud noise, opened my eyes and found myself on the floor. My wife looked really upset and she said I was unresponsive for a few scarey seconds. Today I went to the doctor and it is just a sprain, so it could take a few more days or several weeks to heal. He gave me some muscle relaxers and suggested a heating pad. He also said NO RUNNING! But I need to run! NO RUNNING! He told me to listen to my neck or it will yell louder and louder! Well put!
I should be able to start some running by the weekend and get back to my training.
It is good to be back and I am all recharged and ready to go, just as soon as my neck says I can!
