I woke up this morning trying to convince myself to get my long run out of the way. It did not work. I sat around, doing homework, catching up in TV shows, basically anything to get me out of running.
Then it was noon all of a sudden and we had to go to boyfriend's company picnic. His ambulance company is also a taxi company, so along with paramedics and EMTs, there were taxi drivers. It was an incredibly random mix of people. There was also tri tip, which I LOVE, but since I have no appetite, I only had a bite.
Boyfriend and I went to Costco to stock up for the week and I was about ready to just call walking around Costco enough cardio for the day. Well, eventually I made it into workout clothes for my run and I did 8.2 very painful miles.
When I was done, I laid on the floor in the stretching area of the gym for longer than was socially appropriate. I also did some ab work to make it look like I was doing something other than dying on the floor. When I got home, dinner was ready, which is always a plus.
It was delicious. But let's talk about how I just ran 8 miles. Usually I am starving and want to nosh on anything I can find that's edible. Tonight, this is how far I got.
Me? Leave vegetables on my plate?!? That's unheard of. Maybe I should have listened to my body and not ran today. I would have been even more upset if I had done that though, so it's a lose-lose situation.
Tomorrow is the first day students are back at school and I am so excited about seeing my old students. I'm just hoping my stomach issues clear up for this busy week.
What do you do when you have stomach issues?
