Quick update to say I have not been running since last Saturday because I appear to have a football in my throat again. Usually I would let throat infections run their course but since I want to run my course on Sunday, I went to the doctor.(Also had to get a routine blood pressure check as mine has been....interesting, in the past. Now totally normal. Yay for running!)
Anyway, doctor took one look and said "Yuck". So I have antibiotics to take, and not the good ones, not penicillin because that makes me turn purple and throw up and that's just not a good look. Oxytetracycline which you have to take an hour before food or on an empty stomach. Seriously, do some people really go for an hour without eating? Wow. And you aren't supposed to take milk within 2 hours of the tablets so when am I supposed to get my cup of tea, eh?
Honestly, I will willingly forego my chain-drinking tea habit if it means I am within spitting distance of okay for Sunday. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
