1. SUPER-GROSS WARNING! Skip ahead if you don't like gross things!
My super sweet elbow road rash hasn't been healing that well. It feels like it is burning most of the time, and I bought different antibiotic cream that had pain killer in it, which didn't help at all. However, yesterday afternoon when I took the bandage off to clean it, and again at 4am when I couldn't sleep because it was hurting, I discovered that my body has been using the cream to make some excellent greeny-brownish yellow goo. It doesn't smell (sign of infection), but it's super disgusting. However, there's a deep gash in one corner that is still leaking blood/goo, and I'm wondering if I should've gotten a stitch or two to hold it together. It bled pretty constantly for about 24 hours after the fall, and has been a slow leak ever since. I've been really diligent about washing, air-drying, and re-bandaging this week, but water touching it (in the shower, for example), stings like a motherfucker, even 4 days later. And I haven't been sleeping well because of it, which is probably the reason I stayed in bed until almost 10am this morning like the lazy slag I am.
Because of this, I decided to bail on my pool running date this morning and tomorrow's planned swim workout. If water makes me hiss and jump around, chlorine is probably not the best thing for it.
2. All of my lifting clothes (capris) smell like old sweaty crotch, even fresh out of the dryer, even with "workout" soap and Bounce dryer sheets. Grr. I hate replacing clothes that aren't worn out. I think I'm going to just keep wearing them until I notice people giving me a wide berth.
3. (This one isn't gross). I'll be running the Battle for Ballston 5K this Saturday morning, thanks to a 5K tweetup put together by Brittany! Hopefully it will be slightly cooler than last weekend's 5K.
