Today was the first day my stomach didn’t hurt since Saturday! That was almost of week of cramps and pains and various other stomach problems (I will spare you the details).
Even though I said that I was failing at BFL this week, the reality is I never really started. I was sick from day 1 and ended up eating whatever. Luckily, “whatever” still ended up being 80% healthy stuff. So I don’t feel bad about it.
Today I went with it and just ate what I wanted. I feel good and feel well fueled and that’s more than I could have said for the last 5 days! I will start BFL for real on Sunday.
All day I contemplated running a local half marathon tomorrow. It is super close and never get to run small hometown kind of races. But, I glanced at my race calendar and realize I have a full marathon scheduled in 4 weeks and have totally dropped the ball on training!
I missed 2 long runs during my time in Florida. And before I left I got rained out of a few more Now I only have 4 weeks – including taper(!) to ramp back up for a full. So, I’m kind of in trouble. Yeeaaah.
I am considering pulling back to a half based on how I handle the next 3 weeks. But, I’m going to try and go for it with this plan of long runs:
1/8 – 16 miles
1/16 – 13.1 (Half)
1/22 – 18 miles
1/29 – 8 miles
2/6 – Full
Ben and I went out on a date this evening. He suggest sushi and I suggested, “Yes!”. You know, if yes was a suggestion.
Baked scallop rolls are becoming my favorite kind!
This is a new one we tried. It had salmon on top and random fried strings of potatoes.
Then we walked next door to self serve frozen yogurt. Earlier this week I was worried that it was the dairy that was killing my stomach, but I ruled that out with the cc and yogurt. Thank goodness!
Okay, I’ve got to wind down for tomorrow.
