Sorry for being MIA for the past few days. I had to get through a bridal shower, bachelorette party, 5th birthday for my daughter and today is her FIRST day of Kindergarten. As I write this, I am tearing up again. SHE was totally ready for this, I was not!! She wanted to ride the bus to school this AM but I wouldn't let her, I wanted to be there to watch her walk into school, I wanted to walk her back to her class, I wanted to grab her and put her back in the van and rewind back to when she was 3 and went to preschool two days a week for a few hours then I got her back for lunch. MY BABY IS GONE!!!!
Okay, I have got to move on and get over it. I still have my TWO babies at home with me and they don't start preschool until next Tuesday so I will be a mess then too.
Training has been going. I am such a nerd about my plans, I feel like I am failing if I miss a run or don't run the specific distance that day but I've been having such stomach issues that I am lucky to still be running. My diet has been cheese sandwiches and grilled chicken which hasn't always been staying down (TMI). I moved my Friday run to Saturday and then skipped my Sunday run. I did get my Monday and Tuesday runs in and today, thankfully is a day of rest. I have a 9 miler planned tomorrow and hope I have enough fuel in me to get through it. My 3's and 4's have been tough enough and I know I won't be able to use any gels tomorrow so it's going to be a challenge. I am calling Hammer Nutrition today to chat up one of their people as a blogger recommended them for tummy challenged endurance athletes!! Hope they have all the answers I need.
Thursday: 9 miles
Friday: 3 miles
Sunday: 4 miles
Monday: 4 miles
Tuesday: 5 miles fartlek
We'll see how I do, praying my stomach was just unhappy about my daughter starting school and it will get better as I calm down and let go of some of the control that I feel I have to have.
Anyone else with an angry belly? Anything work for fueling?
