So I had the HCG shot this morning.
And this afternoon, since it was a lovely clear cool day (in the middle of August?!), I decided I might as well go for a run since I won’t be allowed to do so for the next two weeks (and hopefully longer than that). Nothing major- just 5 km at a good heart rate.
The good news was my heart rate was noticeably closer to normal after no Puregon shot this morning. The other good news was it was just a nice run.
The bad news came afterwards, when I was in the shower wondering why on earth my hip hurt so much. And then (much too late) it occurred to me that the HCG injection was not under the skin like my Puregon ones, but was, in fact, into the muscle. The same muscle that I had just gleefully requested to propel me up hills and along the roads.
It hurts to walk. It hurts to sit down.
I am an idiot.
