i ran a mile after work, someone cancelled on sunday so i got stuck with a double shift so didn’t feel like testing my luck when the shin was almost immediately sore, not as bad as before though. was really mad and probably would have posted a rant about how karma isn’t real, etc. but after some consulting with dr. google i diagnosed it as shin splints, believe it or not despite 10 years in the game i’ve never gotten shin splints before. did some stretches recommended for that and felt much better

also a mini-rant, yesterday the PCA that cancelled, instead of calling in sick(which she does all the time, you’d think a hospital would be the last place a hypochondriac would work) she comes in and hands the charge nurse a form saying she’s being tested for COVID. i’d bet my fertility she’s just getting tested as a reason to not work the shift, but either way why would you come into the workplace if you’re claiming you might have the coronabug, especially if it’s a hospital floor specializing in long-term care, meaning most of the patients are elderly?! also while i’m just blabbering on i’ve started calling my main chick “boob” as a term of endearment and i think it’s the funniest thing ever because much like my co-workers i’m a moron

i posted this on sunday and figured it goes against the rules that i make up as i go to post the sotd a d late. should be back either tomorrow or wednesday with mileage and songs though; whichever day has me 100% sure the shin splints are completely gone.

You have to have rules. Otherwise, you get this:

Sorry about your splin shints. I get those when I run on loose sand in shoes, or on pavement barefoot.

I'm with Mike. That phrase was a gem.
