Woohoo! I just had a root canal. Half of my mouth is still frozen and I’m afraid to eat anything for fear that much of my tongue will go missing.
Seriously, I’m not joking. I have to tell you I’m pretty damned psyched about this too.
Now I’m going to be able to get in some seriously strenous workouts again. Heck, lately anything that raised my blood pressure was a problem.
Just last night I was kept awake all night with a dull ache that would only go away, for five minutes at a time, when I sipped on something cool. I can’t count how many trips I had to make to the bathroom.
Dammit! I can’t wait!
Now I’ll be able to get good restful sleep again. Hello recovery! I’ll be able to work out hard again. Hello intensity!
Finally, I’m free from a slowly degenerating battle against infection as my chipped tooth slowly decayed. Now my body can stop creating so much damned cortisol and wasting energy on an immune response. Hello muscles!
Okay, maybe I’m overreacting a bit, but if it’s all in the mind, I’m psyched! I’m hoping to really notice a difference now that this issue is in the past.
I wonder if I should try to hit the gym tonight? I think in the new year I’ll switch up to the TBT plan – I’ve had good success with Chad’s other programs.
Heh, update, the tongue is starting to tingle… maybe I’ll chance some food in a few minutes.
