Comments: The song from Daniel Powter “Bad Day” fits today. But I was able to turn it around! I am feeling 100% better after my run, perhaps a bit tired, but I’ll take that.
I ran the first mile straight without stopping (10:10) and I haven’t done that since my training for the full marathon in October ’07. Then I walked a minute and then ran until I had mile 2 (10:57) under my belt. I did the same to get mile three done (11:08). I am hoping to be able to continue that trend.
My stomach still acts up several times a day, however it doesn’t give me trouble while running. After May 3rd (Indy 1/2 marathon) I’ll be going back to the gastologist requesting that he’ll do a colonoscopy. The pain however is nothing compared to what I had in the beginning of the year. None the less I think it’s come to a point where it is not getting any better.
Stopped at the Columbus Running Co last night. I bought a shirt and some “Yankz” shoe laces (Pink “For the Cure”). I still have $40 left of my gift certificate! My running shoes were at work and I wasn’t able to put the laces on last night. So first thing this morning I tried putting them on my shoes, it didn’t feel right. But I haven’t given up. The shoes are coming home tonight and I’ll be able to spend more time on getting the laces just right. 🙂
I also bought a running shirt, but didn’t try it on. The plan was to wear it today at lunch, but with me being so overweight my current build it doesn’t look very flattering. I am going to hold on to the shirt and my goal is to be able to wear it before the summer is over. It sucks being vein!
Fun facts: My previous shoes had 294 miles on it, bringing the cost to $0.31 per mile ran! Hmmm, it is cheaper to drive that distance in my car (for now at least).
