Yup . . . sometimes you just have to acknowledge that it’s not your day. But before we get to that, let’s talk about the fun stuff.
As I mentioned yesterday, I dropped Zach off at the airport around 8 AM so I had Sunday to myself. That meant a whole lotta relaxing was in the plans.
I started with a new to me breakfast that I’ve seen around a lot, but never tried. Bobo’s Oat Bars. They’re pretty small, so if you have a big appetite I would probably include a piece of fruit. But for me, especially with my tired tummy after a run, this was the perfect post-run breakfast.
The rest of the afternoon included a lot of reading, snacking, yoga and hanging out with the furballs. Pretty perfect if you ask me.
With Zach gone my motivation to cook was pretty non-existent, so I decided to allow myself to succumb to my craving.
And of course, it was delicious as always.
I ordered a you pick two. With the cobb salad
and turkey bacon bravo.
It was delicious, but my stomach continues to be VERY angry with me. It had actually been much better the entire afternoon until I ate this. Maybe all the bread??
Anyway — I hung out with Sean and Catherine last night (Bachelor Wedding, hello!), then crawled into bed hoping once again to wake up feeling better.
I did wake up feeling a little better, but not 100%. I had speed work on the docket for this morning, and I sure tried . . . but it wasn’t happening.
I did the first 2 miles at speed, and then could NOT bare the pain I was having in my stomach/side (this time it felt like my abs being sore. Maybe from the core work in yoga yesterday?). So, I did a slow job for mile 3, and incline walked a bunch of the 4th mile. Thankfully, I felt fine when I wasn’t running, so my guess is this time that it really was just a side stitch. Dear lord I’m falling apart.
Workout of the day: 4 miles of attempted/failed speed work.
And now, it’s time for me to drink a Kambucha and eat a bunch of healthy, whole foods today to get whatever this crud in my body is OUT! 🙂
Have a great Monday all!
Question of the Morning: Do you ever have side stitches/stomach problems? Share in my misery? ha
