Just another Manic Monday

Monday always seems like the longest day of the week to me and I’m sure it’s mostly psychological. Today was no different. I had a ton of different projects to get finished and I was constantly busy. I knew we should have gone to the gym in the morning, and I was beginning to regret it. At about 4:15 my stomach started to hurt a little and by the time, I left work at 4:40 I had a really bad stomachache. I had already been to the bathroom and I knew it was just stomach pain and that I wasn’t sick, so we went to the gym anyway.

The treadmills were all packed at first, but I quickly found one and got to work. The warm up went fine. I ran a mile in a little over thirteen minutes and it was about then that I started to get a side cramp. I think I was dehydrated even though I drank about 48 ounces of water at work throughout the day. I think my upset stomach dehrdrated me. I slowed down to a walk and drank water while I walked. The walk lasted about 3 minutes and then I tried running again….I did about two minutes and realized I was going to have to walk some more. I walked about 5 more minutes and then ran for 5 minutes. Total distance covered in 30 minutes 2 miles. I was disappointed, but I know I am still not feeling 100% better and really any running is better then I used to do.

I continued walking for about 7 more minutes so my total time on the treadmill was 42 minutes.

I then moved on to the Elliptical machine and did 25 minutes on that. I was pretty exhausted when I was done, but didn’t feel out of breath or over tired which is good because it means I am feeling better.

In other news, while at work today I decided I was sick of my hair and am getting it cut tomorrow. I am not sure exactly how to get it cut, but I need a change.

So I don't know if it was the time change or what, but I couldn't get up this morning. We are planning to go to the gym after work today....more to report later.
