I Hate Going To The Dentist

If there is one thing I hate with a passion, it's going to the dentist. I've had my fill of dreadful dental visits, including a root canal that went awry, which turned into an implant. Dental implants are crazy - they drill a #$#%##$ pilot hole in your jaw and drop a titanium post in there. Ouch !!! So, I suppose I shouldn't whine too much about today's visit for a simple cleaning. We'll see....I'm heading out there now.

Since I was lazy yesterday and blew off my training run, I made sure to get up bright and early this morning for a quick hour run. Easy 15 minute warmup, followed by 9 2-minute repeats with 3 minutes of easy jogging in between. Tomorrow will be 5 hours of trail running.

Off to the dentist. Wish me luck.


  1. Hope the dentist visit went well-I'm way overdue for that cleaning myself!

  2. LMAO! I love how you talk about the dentist and then the last sentence is 5 HOURS of trail running. Most normal people would take the dentist over running 5 hrs hehe

  3. :)
    I survived.
    I'll take a 5 hour run over a trip to the dentist anyday !

  4. Glad you survived! i'd take a 5 hour run over most anything else ;)

    I had a bad root canal experience once too! i will share that with you at RR :)
