Hi Guys! Another week is behind us! I hope it was a great one for you! This week was really low key for me. I didn’t do a lot , and was home almost all day every day. It was a nice quiet week! Monday – you can read about Monday here.
Tuesday – I got up early Tuesday so I could try and get a run in before it started raining. I wasn’t quick enough! By the time I was ready to go out the door, it was storming. I had to wait a couple of hours before it stopped. Once it quit, Jake wanted to go for a walk first. We went for a quick one because it was still thundering. By the time we got home, the sun was peeking through the clouds so I headed out.
I ran/walked three miles and was drenched in sweat! It was so humid! When I got home, I made a chocolate protein shake to cool off.
Then, Jake and I played outside with this little guy.
He’s been hanging around for a long time now. He just roams from one house to another. No one knows who he belongs to or where he came from. He is so sweet and I am trying so hard to convince Jeremy to let me keep him. It just kills me that he’s hungry all the time. It makes me so sad. I named him Charlie. 🙂
Wednesday – Happy Global Running Day! I got up early again today to get a run in. My run on Tuesday was not so great, so I wanted to make sure to run before it got too hot. I fixed some oatmeal for breakfast and then cleaned my house while I waited on that to settle. I finally headed out around 9, and it was overcast and cool.
I didn’t even make it a mile before my stomach was upset. I pushed through running and walking until I got to 3 miles then I went home and laid in the floor until my stomach settled.
Since the marathon, my stomach has been bothering me every time I try to run. Usually I can make it a couple of miles before it gets upset, but sometimes it’s not that far. That’s the reason why I haven’t been running a lot or far. I don’t know what the deal is. I start getting nauseous and then have to walk for a minute for it to stop. Then I can run a little further before the nausea comes back. It’s frustrating me! I googled it and found out that maybe I am not hydrated enough?? I don’t know because I drink a ton of water. I’m going to try drinking a lot more water and if that doesn’t help, I’m going to call my doctor and try to figure out what’s going on, and make sure it’s not something serious.
Later in the afternoon, Jeremy and I took Jake to the vet. He has a knot on his shoulder, and it is kind of big and it was worrying me. The vet looked at it, and said that it is a fatty tumor that is just attached to the skin, and won’t hurt him. She said he needs to have his teeth cleaned, so when she does that, she will remove the tumor. It was a huge relief that it wasn’t anything serious!
When we got back home we took Jake for a walk and visited with our neighbors for a little while.
Thursday – Today I slept in a little. After my run on Wednesday, I didn’t feel very well the rest of the day. My stomach hurt all day and I just felt tired. I thought that if I got some extra sleep that maybe I would feel better. I did feel a lot better when I got up. It stormed all day, so it worked out that I was planning on taking a rest day from running. I ran some errands in town and then played with Jake all afternoon. I did do some strength training and I tried to do some ab workouts, but Jake kept standing over me putting his toy in my face or licking my face!
Thursday night Jeremy wanted sloppy joes for dinner. LOL Every time he wants these, I have Adam Sandler running through my mind singing sloppy joes….now you do too!
Friday – Jeremy and I went to visit his mom today. When we got back, we took Jake for a short run. He ran a half a mile and he was done!
It started sprinkling on us, so we sat on the back porch waiting for it to pass. I was going to go run some more, but decided against it. Instead, I went in and did some strength training.
My friend dropped off her fish for me to babysit while she goes on vacation this next week. So, right now I have 3 bettas! LOL The one in the covered bowl is very feisty and jumps way out of the water!
And then this happened!
Yes that’s a toilet….I accidentally knocked the guards that go on Jeremy’s razor in the toilet and had to fish them out!
Saturday – I really wanted to try and run a long run today, but didn’t know if I would be able to or not. I ate a banana and half a bowl of cereal and waited 2 hours before trying to run. I made it 2 miles before my stomach started hurting, but it wasn’t too bad. I slowed down to a walk for a minute and continued to run. It wasn’t until almost three miles when my neighbor stopped me to talk that I actually felt nauseous. I ran home and got a drink and then headed back out for another two miles. I ended up making it 5.3 miles.
It was slow and I had to walk several times to settle my stomach, but it was better than it’s been.
We checked on the garden today, and even though it’s been raining so much, there is stuff growing!
Sunday – I’m on my way out the door now to try and get in a few miles. It is a beautiful day – warm with a cool breeze. I’m going to shoot for 4 miles, but my stomach is not feeling very good, so we’ll see how it goes.
Update: I ran 3.4 miles. It was super hot!
Do you have any idea what could be causing all this stomach trouble?? Any ideas what I could do to make it stop?
