Comments: I didn’t have to deal with any unchained dogs on this run, but I did have some close encounters of the metal kind…with cars (and I am not one of those runners that takes up the road, I stay on the median when I hear a car). The jury is still out about what I like more, dogs or cars!
It was a good run! I ran 3 seconds faster per mile than I did last week on my 10 miler. The weather was great, a bit too warm maybe, but nice none the less. GUed at mile 4 and 8. The GU game plan next week is: 4, 8, 12. I drank both my water/gatorade, but should be ok next week, with water stations and all.
The Gastroenterologist said, given by my description of the pain, that is was my colon that gave me all that trouble. He said it appears to be healing so we’ll monitor it and see how it progresses. I did notice that my diet has a lot to do with the pain. If I eat junk food and drink pop my stomach is much more agitated then if I drink water and eat healthier food (of course!). Just another reason to eat healthier.
