I've been dealing with a stomach thing just about all winter. I cannot figure out what it is. I've pretty much given up dairy thinking that it was related - but today I swear I move for 5 minutes and my stomach starts to ache and I have to sit down. Don't get me started on my trips to the bathroom....at least today I've kept some food down.
This morning was a 10 miler. It hasn't happened. I was supposed to go with my friend. We were going to run/walk it and feel really good about ourselves. Instead, it's almost noon and I'm still in my pjs feeling rather dysfunctional. I didn't run all week, but did do an incredible 9 mile walk with the family last weekend.
I'm frustrated. I feel so lazy - although I know this is not true about me. I've been reading all these blogs and people's race stories - - especially Bobbi's most recent half marathon, and I just can't figure out why I can't seem to manage it all. It's this internal thing that is so absurd.
I'm still going to do the half. I'll be able to finish it - just not as fast as I was hoping. I'm still motivated though - this weekend just feels like a major bump in the road.
