Ran 4 miles, 8:58 pace. Easy run, but my stomach hurt the whole time.
Went to the doctor because my stomach issues weren’t getting any better with the Pepcid, Tums, and GasEx combo. She thinks I had salmonella poisoning. Whelp that explains a lot!
I was given the option to collect a sample, bring it back, and have it tested but miraculously my stomach issues went away by Friday evening. Isn’t that how it always works? I didn’t care enough to find out definitively if that’s what the problem was. I would rather not play with my poo.
Doctor told me to take it easy with the running, hydrate, and avoid raw foods for a little while (hard for your stomach to digest).
8 miles were on the schedule. Kyle made me promise that I wouldn’t run more than a 10K (and that took negotiating). Something about how my doctor said to take it easy blah blah blah.
Well, even though I fought him on the 10K, my body could only handle a VERY slow 5 miles+1 mile walk with Sienna. My body just felt weak and exhausted. I guess that’s what happens when you drop 5 pounds in 6 days.
Later on Saturday, I met up with my BFF Shanna for lunch. We went to a new place, Gotta Eatta Pitta. SO GOOD!
We both got the Falafel Bowl and you get to customize all the “add ins.”
Mine had hummus, cous cous, tomato and cucumber salad (forgot that those are raw…), tabbouleh, eggplant, and pickles. AMAZING!
That evening, we met up with family friends and family for dinner at Pizza Antica. Did I remember to take a pic of our food? Nope. But luckily my mom did and here’s what she and a few others had.
After dinner we all walked to a local candy shop. Heaven.
Ran 8 miles. Last longish run until my half next weekend!
My first mile was horrible. I was struggling to keep a 10:20-ish pace. I thought the run was going to be a horribly long and painful one. It didn’t help that it was already getting warm (73F). Somehow my legs warmed up after the first mile and it was a good run.
And because Kyle had to work on Saturday, I ran and met him for bagels (we usually do this on Saturdays)! When we got to my house, I was cold. Even though it was mid-70s out, when you sweat a ton and then walk into your house where it’s only 63F, you get very cold. Thanks for capturing that gem Kyle.
Then he helped me with my taxes. And by “helped” I mean he did them as I sat there and watched and then got bored and made him cookies as payment. Best deal ever (for me).
How was your weekend?? Anything fun, interesting, or boring happen?
Ever have salmonella poisoning?
