I don’t really have much of an update today. It’s about to be a 3 day weekend whoooo! Too bad RKY works all three days. It will be up to me to entertain Ragin Red.
My birthday is on Monday and I didn’t ask for anything, so it will be interesting to see what I get. What I need is money to pay for my car registration. Why can’t that come at a different time of year so you don’t feel fked over on your birthday?
This week in running…
Sunday I ran 11. I don’t remember much about this run, so it must have gone fine. Monday I ran 4 and did strength training. My strength training is like lifting super light weights with 5 minutes rest between sets. Very effective. Tuesday I ran 9. It was the day after some really violent storms, so there were a lot of water hazards and branches to hurdle. Steeplechase style. Wednesday I woke up late. I had crazy dreams and slept on the couch until about 2 am. When I woke up, i had terrible anxiety that came out of nowhere. Luckily I fell back asleep. Unluckily, my clock somehow got changed to Mountain time, so I woke up an hour late and didn’t have much time to run. So I called it an impromptu rest day.
The whole day felt off after that. I had weird anxiety and my stomach felt ick and full all day long. Luckily, today is starting out better. I ran 9.35 and so far my stomach feels fine. I’ll hopefully do another longish run tomorrow and then a shorter one on Saturday because I will probably be tired after 4th of July festivities.
Going to an outreach clinic for U of I to look at baby’s kidneys. It’s a level two U/S which is more detailed and probably creepier looking. Yay. My stomach is feeling squished and a bit sour lately but nothing terrible yet. Varicose veins…unsightly and they hurt! Ouch. Bumping my calf into a table is killer. They only hurt a little after I run, they kind of pulsate for a minute. It’s a weird feeling. I also have some pinched nerves somewhere that makes weird parts of my body tingle with pins and needles. I’m very excited for the race next weekend so I hope I don’t end up with another summer cold or sinus infection or random injury. Fingers crossed.
