Yesterday was my rest day, and I took full advantage of it! I spent the whole day in bed, snuggling with the pup and catching up on all my DVR’d shows. My stomach was a bit upset from the Chinese food. Every time I get Chinese, I swear it’s going to be the last time. Ugh.
This morning I had my coffee then took Lucy out for a mile walk, which was also the warm up for my (planned) 6 mile run. My run started out great- it was mild with no wind. I was planning on doing the reverse of my 10-mile run from a few weeks ago, and off I went.
I got just over a mile when the stomach pains started. As I ran back home I knew I had made the right decision to postpone the Marathon (which was today by the way)! My biggest fear was having the exact stomach issues that happened! Granted, I would have eaten differently over the last few days had I still planned on running the marathon, but that’s neither here nor there.
I’m not going to sit here and dwell on it. I’m just going to work on fixing my diet and hopefully that will take care of the issues I’m having. So after my stomach settled back down I made a salad, topped with black beans, salsa, and guacamole, and now I’m planning my menu for the week.
