School is in session

With your help I have raised $2800 so far. THANK YOU EVERYONE! I am hoping that I can hit $3000 by the time I am running the 1/2. Wouldn’t that be awesome? That would be twice the amount of money I thought I couldn’t raise! 😉


This quarter (school) is going to be a tough one; 3 classes *sigh*. But this is my running blog, not my “here I go again, complaining” blog ! 😉

My stomach has been giving me trouble, so I (finally) had a CT scan on Tuesday. But it doesn’t show anything *sigh*. I guess that’s a good thing, however I would like to know why I have pains on my left side. Perhaps my gastroenterologist will be able to answer that for me on the 23rd, when I have my next medical procedure.

I ran 10 miles on Saturday. It went well. Again slower than I have been in the past, but, like always, I got it done. I was very sore afterwards though, specially my left leg. (All my on and off pains are on the left side in my stomach as well), so I didn’t run on Monday. I did jump on the stationary bike at home and peddled 13 miles.

On Tuesday I had the CT scan. The stuff they made me drink messed my stomach up really bad (or perhaps it was the IV, I don’t know). I was in no shape to run, other than to the bathroom. *sigh*

I planned on running three at lunch on Tuesday, but my leg hurt, so I jumped on the elliptical rider for 30 minutes (3.14 miles) and stretched some afterwards. This sounds like a week of excuses. lol

Tonight my goal is to run 6 miles on the treadmill. We’ll have to see how that goes. As of right now I don’t have any leg pain.

My father in-law had his sixth chemo on Monday. He is now officially halfway through his treatment! They still hit him pretty hard, but I think it helps to know there is a routine to it.

11 miles @ home (12:22)

Weather: mid 60’s, nice

Clothes: Adidas shorts, MiT technical shirt

Shoes: Izumi Pearl

Distance: 11 miles

Time: 2:16:04

Split: 12:22

Course: Through New Salem, just past Cattail Rd and back

Comments: I wasn’t sure how far I was able to go today. I told the hubby that I might be calling him at mile 8 or 9 to be picked up. I was feeling good at mile nine other than I could feel blisters in the making (but then I had been feeling them since mile 4). I walked ever mile for 0.9 miles to drink and stretch, I think that really helped.

Mile 4 and 5 where the easiest, cause they were downhill all the way. In turn mile 6 and 7 where a bitch, all uphill.

I was tired at mile 10, but told myself “it’s only a mile”. About 1/2 mile from home my non-favorite dog decided to chase me, so I had to walk and then actually stop. I make a point of running on the other side of the road just to put more distance between me and the dog should he come out. He came running towards me and then was actually was standing in front of me on the road, growling, barking and his hair standing up. I wanted to tell the owner of the dog off when he finally came out and called his dog back, but I was to tired nothing came out.

Overall this was a good run. I am glad I went the distance, I just hope I won’t be too sore the next few days! lol

Crankygirl, I wish you the best of luck tomorrow in your NY City Triathlon. Go kick some butt, just not your own! 😉

2.25 miles @ work

Time: 10:00 am

Weather: Indoors

Clothes: Adidas shorts, Adidas technical shirt

Shoes: Izumi Pearl

Distance: 2.25 miles

Time: ~ 30 min

Split: ?

Course: Treadmill

Comments: Was sore in the right hip for about 1.5 miles then it went away. However at mile 2.25 my stomach sent severe stress signals to my brain telling it to look for the bathroom. My stomach is a mess, wondering if it was the eggs I ate this morning!

My plan was to run 3 miles. Then after the signal I was going to hop on the elliptical rider after the storm cleared, but my stomach was totally against spending calories/energy on the ellitptical rider. I am saving that energy to make it through the day.

If all is better by tonight then I’ll run 1 or 2 miles this evening.
