I went for a lunch time jog today. I ran outside for the first time in a while and boy is it hot out! I was soaked in sweat by 3/4 of the way through the run and once I got inside the sweat just started pouring out of me. Now, I’m back to work and drinking a lot of water. For the record I ran 2.5 out 3.25 miles.
Yesterday I went for another, well supported, lunchtime jog. This time I went a little farther than before. I walked 0.5 miles and ran 1.75 miles. Man, I’ve put on several pounds since I hurt my back a month ago. Since then I’ve had the groin issues and then the ulcer issues. Laying around, eating milkshakes and not exercising has really cost me a few pounds. I think I’ve gained 5 pounds. I’m almost back up to 170. I guess the antibiotics must be working since I’m able to run again (even if it is well supported). I would not have tried to run a couple weeks ago so I guess things are getting better. I’m planning on running again today. Wish me luck!
I went for a short run yesterday at lunch time. I wore jockeys, a jock strap and spandex and was able to run for 1.5 miles + .5 walking. It has been weeks since I ran last so it was harder than it should have been. I was sore at night but I still only took 2 Tylenol yesterday. I really want to get back to working out again. I think I might try again today.
Feeling Down Today
I’m tired and feeling down today. I took the kids to the park this evening when D went to tennis lessons. We only stayed for a little while because M had to go to the bathroom (forgot to make him go before we left). When I got home I was disgusted with the mess in our kitchen and living room so I spent a half hour cleaning up while the kids ate dinner. Z had a hot dog, fruit cup & cheese stick while M had a peanut butter and jelly, fruit cup and cheese stick – at least they had fruit cups.
The kids spent most of the day in the basement working on decorating a cardboard box I let them play in – why do we even buy toys? They cut up paper, taped it to the box, drew on it with crayons, etc. It is a big box – big enough for them to get into. It’s funny how much fun a box can be.
Oh yeah and I sprayed the bathroom again for bugs because I saw a few more in there when I went to take my shower 😦
