2 miles @ work treadmill – Weightlifting

Comments: All is good! I think I might have licked the stomach issue. I decided to take some Zantac 75 to see if that would help with my stomach pains. It seems to really have done the trick! I have occasional pains, but NOTHING like I had before. So I am thinking the obgyn issue let me to worry and inflamed my stomach lining. (I have had that before, but nothing close to that painful!) I will continue to montior and the Dr. appointment is still a go.

I ordered the new(er) 205 Garmin yesterday. I received a small bonus at work and had a $25 gift certificate to Amazon, so I decided to treat myself! 🙂 The package is to be delievered today! I am very excited about it. The old 205 will go into the gym locker as a backup.

7 miles @ home (12:28)

Comments: It started snowing Friday morning and pretty much didn’t stop until Saturday evening leaving us with a good 18 to 20 inches of snow. (Our dog Midknight in our backyard on Saturday afternoon)

On Sunday the sun came out and I headed out hoping that the roads wouldn’t be too bad.

I ran into the ‘friendly’ neighborhood dog. He came charging at me from his house. I saw the owner and thought “Sweet, I won’t have to worry”. BUT the owner yells at his dog once and gets into his car. Of course the dog did not stop barking and following me (in the road) until I was past his property. Oh, I was so pissed and flabbergasted that someone could be so irresponsible!

Other than that the run in itself was good. The snow made it a challange and so did the snow plows, but the sun was out and it was sooo pretty! I don’t think I have ever seen so many people out since I started running that route. Everyone was busy shoveling all that snow. Nice!

Even though the run was slower than I had hoped, I enjoyed it and made it home without breaking, straining, or pulling anything! 🙂

3.9 miles @ work (11:37)

Comments: Even though some of the sidewalks were pretty slushy/frozen it was a good run overall.

Went to the doctor, who is a nerve/skeleton/muscular specialist. He could not see anything wrong with me (no pulled muscles) and his exact words were “Your pain lies deeper than muscles.” So he reffered me to a gastrologist. They will call me after they set up the appointment. I had a pretty bad afternoon yesterday, pain wise. I hope that I will stay moderatly pain free today.

2 miles @ work treadmill – Weightlifting

Comments: My legs were still heavy from Sunday’s run and I was seriously contemplating on giving them more rest time. I hopped on the treadmill with the intentions on quitting after one if they didn’t stop hurting, but before mile one they loosened up and I was able to finish the second mile without any problems.

4 miles @ home (11:35)

Comments: These 4 miles seemed very long today. I think part of it is to blame on the fact that I overdressed (and was still tired). I should have run in shorts and shirt, but yet I was out there with long sleeve shirt and pants. I am glad I brought the gloves, but at the end of the run I had taken them off.

Considering my sluggishness I am happy with the time.

Shoes: Saucony

Distance: 4

Time: 46:20
