Last time I wrote a post I finally went on a road run. Since then, we have been super busy. When my husband comes home for 3 weeks, he is home and we kind of go on vacation. Now that he is back to work for 3-4 weeks, I am getting back to a schedule. When he was home, we did all sorts of fun stuff! We went camping on the Olympic Peninsula at Salt Creek Rec Area. Such a fun time!
We also went to the Honda Celebration of Light in Vancouver, B.C. and the Vancouver Aquarium. What an amazing event! The fireworks display was like nothing I have ever seen before. It was so cool to join the thousands of people on the waterfront and enjoy such an exciting event. Luckily the hubs has a cousin who lives there, so we can park at her place and wander around town without having to worry about parking in town.
We went to Seattle a few times. The first time, we went to drop off my brother’s dog at his apartment then I seriously can’t remember what we did after that. Senior moment. On Friday, we went to the Washington Arboretum and walked around the park. It was so nice and warm.
I bet you think I’m finished, one more…I promise!
Yesterday, we went to Padilla Bay to walk the shore trail. That was okay, wasn’t quite what I was expecting. But I did find a place to take my daughter on her bike and I can run the 4.5 mile round trip.
Okay, so overall, my training has been in the dumps. I have been doing well with weight training, but running isn’t working out so well. I have still been dealing with tummy issues and it has been draining my energy levels. I have an appointment on the 22nd to try and figure out what is going on. So far, if I completely ixnay gluten, grains, and corn I feel okay. As soon as I add them in, my stomach goes haywire. I can run a few miles, but then I start to cramp up and I feel like I am being stabbed in the rib cage like I ate too much before running. I tried to run today, but I just couldn’t. I did .3 miles, and said FUCK THIS! I had my little tantrum and I will try again later or tomorrow. This is my first day of taking gluten, grains, and corn off my eat list for the long term, so maybe in a few days I will perk up.
Whew, that was a lot to cover, and a lot for you to take in huh? Ta for now!
