Taking the week off of running has been good for my knee. I have managed a couple of bike rides and Yoga, and took advantage of the hot tub at the YMCA while my kids were in swimming lessons. (I'm liking that part)
I gave blood Thursday night. I figured why not, since I am FINALY, not pregnant,nursing,on medication, have low iron, or had a blood transfusion.
So...I really did not have an excuse when my husband went in for his 20th donation.
Except...my blood pressure was 98/56 and my Iron JUST made the cut. But...I did it anyway.
All I can say is that for the last two days I have felt SERIOUSLY DRAINED.....I just think a pint for me was just too much for my little body.
I can only compare this 'drainage' to the tired feeling of the first Trimester in pregnancy.
Oh I could only hope....Now THAT would be exciting.
