Had to re-break a follow-up fever, 103.3F to 100.7 ...

The last time I was sick I was still in my twenties.

Can't recall ever breaking a fever and then having to do it again ... ever.

 

     There's something bad going around. My mom has been sick for a week and she hasn't been ill since the early '90s.




#1424142 [Feb 20] What are you working on this week? Group activity log

Posted by Hybrid_Mode_01 on 20 February 2017 - 10:22 PM

     I thought that was Scovie that wrote this because of the avatar. This is the weirdest thing to imagine coming out of that dude's mouth. (Scovie has a swimming coach?! :shocked: )

 

Let's see... aside from regular work, this past week/weekend:

 

- Took a kayak roll clinic and considered where my and my friends' first kayak adventure will be this spring,

- Registered for this summer's National Senior Olympic Games and made related travel/hotel arrangements,

- Had a time trial on the 50m sprint (track) then looked up the times of the Top 10 in my age group on the NSGA website and found I beat all 10 during my trial,

- Had a cortisone shot in my hamstring tendon,

- Went to a baby shower that I was less than excited about going to but then decided it was ok as a full meal and wine were flowing (no stupid shower games!),

- Went out to dinner with a friend and had some awesome sushi,

- Reconnected with my running coach to ensure he will be working with me before Nationals,

- Had sessions with two of my swimming coaches, and

- My usual workouts (swim, run, weights, cores.)

 

This week, also sans regular work:

- Make the final design for the gift I'm making for the chick whose shower I went to,

- Take some out-of-town friends out to dinner,

- Watch the 4-day Horizon League conference swim meet finals on live streaming/video and yell for my favorite team as if they can hear me,

- Have my first session with my new personal trainer,

- Talk with my running coach to look into what it would take to get some high jump training,

- My usual workouts, and

- Try to convince myself it's really too soon to start hot pepper seeds and that it really is better to wait for March.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And maybe I am trying to one-up Phil with this! :P

 

Ann - love the new sauce!

#1423962 Dry leaves mean what lol?

Could you post some pictures?

Humidity levels indoors during the winter can get very, very low, and can lead to issues like this.

 

     Indeed. Variations in ambient humidity can have a larger than expected effect on unhardened plants.

     If they've been under the grow lights and out of the elements for long enough, they probably got accustomed to those conditions. Now that they're near a window maybe the light is less intense or the air is dryer or able to circulate more freely. Even small changes can have noticeable effects on plants when they're put in a completely new environment without time to acclimate.

     Maybe put them back under the lights for a day or two and see how they do. If they perk up, put them back by the window for another day or two and see what happens.

     This happens to some extent to a lot of my seedlings when I start moving them around in spring - from under grow lights to a sunny window to outside. When I go easy on them and make sure to give them a chance to acclimate to new surroundings, they overcome it and harden.

     Sometimes damaged roots (from fungus or fungus gnats) can cause plants to look wilted and sad. Something else to consider...

It was getting dark, so this was one of the few pics that came out non-blurry.

#1423564 Capsaicin vs. pain neurotransmitters - Calling all chile alchemists

Good first experiment.  Couple of thoughts- would adding a heating pad to the affected area help and I would suggest wiping the oil off with paper towels and alcohol or even a strong grease-cutting dish soap (used straight, rub it around, then wipe off with paper towels) before the shower.  I've heard many folks say an automotive hand degreaser like Goop works also.  

 

     I was thinking along those lines today, too. Along with heat, adding something like camphor or methyl salicylate might "open up the pores" more too. I don't know how much truth there is to that, but some Scandinavians (I think - Finns, maybe) flog eachother with young yellow birch branches (contain natural methyl salicylate) in saunas for medicinal reasons. The hot air and sweating and birch oil is refreshing and relieves back pain.
