Yesterday morning Matt and I slept in (8:30a), had a little breakfast, hung out with Sheri then hit the road back to Tallahassee around 11am. We had planned to do our long run Monday morning but my stomach was not feeling well at all and my allergy medicine was making me super drowsy.
So we made the executive decision to run when we got back to Tallahassee. I was starting to feel better so I decided to not pass on my roadtrip tradition and got a Yoohoo from a rest stop around Gainesville.
We got in around 3pm and headed to the St. Marks Trail with the plan of doing 6 miles. I made it just about 2 miles before my stomach decided to ruin my life. My stomach has never been my best friend during runs. It is very picky about what I feed it the 24-36 hours before a run and I am still learning (usually the hard way) what works and doesn’t. After two rest days and 4 hours in a car, my legs were pissed at my stomach for ruining a wonderful run. But I guess that’s what I get for eating volcano gator bites the night before….
Oh well, some runs are just crappy. Pun intended. My training schedule has taken a pretty big hit the past two weeks with our trips but that’s life. I will try to get back on track today with a 4 miler after work.
After admiting defeat, we went cruising around Costco and Publix then headed home where Matt cooked up a healthy dinner to start and undo my weekend of fried everything.
He baked the salmon with some dill, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and sundried tomatoes. We were out of butter so he coated the salmon with some of the oil from the jarred sundried tomatoes and that was genius. He also roasted some sweet potatoes, onions, and broccoli and made a Caesar salad with tomatoes and hearts of palm. This was the perfect ‘welcome home’ dinner.
We missed House of Lies on Sunday night so we watched that while I snacked on a newly discovered candy, Sixlets. My friends had these at their housewarming party and I stole a purseful.
Last season Matt and I couldn’t get enough of House of Lies. We’ve watched the 2 new episodes of the new season and so far it sucks. I think I may be giving up on this show. Sorry, Roscoe.
This morning I headed into work in a pretty good mood since it’s already Tuesday and was super happy to see that my boxes finally made it to my new office! But while I was setting up everything I came across 4 dead lady bugs on my window.
Later in the day I saw a few more lady bugs flying around the office. I think we have a ladybug infestation. But as far as infestations go, I guess lady bugs aren’t so bad.
Any other sensitive stomach runners out there? What do you do to prevent issues mid run?
Do you prefer eating out or cooking at home?
The only thing I prefer eating out is sushi. Other than that, I choose eating at home 99% of the time.
