Well this was a week I wasn’t expecting to be so tough. Starting with the stomach problems, then having to force myself out the house to run has been challenging. I managed runs on from Thanksgiving day onwards and finally felt pretty decent by yesterdays run. Yesterday the 23 degree temp called me to stay in bed, so I ran a little later in the day. Just a short 5 miler instead of my normal 10 miles. A soon as I got back, we left for the Y to hit the pool. Being back in the water felt good after 10 days. A mile and a bit later. I felt much better.
With all the stomach issues I’ve had, getting back to my smoothies was something I wasn’t looking forward to in case it caused a reaction. I finally tried one for breakfast and tentatively, it looks like that went down well. There is nothing like getting back in to a routine to help the healing process.
So overall my mileage for the week….
