Well I thought I was over not feeling well on Monday but Tuesday I felt even worse. I was extremely tired and had a bad headache. I skipped Pilates and was in bed around 9 pm which is very early for me. But a good night of sleep helped and I felt better on Wednesday. I decided to skip my workouts for the rest of the week till today and took my rest and it helped. I didn’t get sick and am feeling completely well again today.
I finally decided to see my doctor about my stomach problems that I still have. I had an appointment yesterday. After she heard the symptoms, she immediately thought of a parasite in my intestines. I have to bring some samples on Monday morning and have the results by the end of next week. If this is the problem it can easily be treated with antibiotics. So I hope this is it and my problems will soon be over. I already feel stupid that I didn’t go sooner because I’m having this problems for months now.
I haven’t been running or do any other exercise since Monday because I wasn’t well. Today I was feeling good to go for a run. I decided not to catch up with missed runs and do the distance I had to do today which was 6.4K (4 miles). The weather was great, it’s more like Autumn here these days than Winter. There was a very hard wind, almost storm. I love running in/against the wind. Feels like fighting with nature. When I had the wind in my back I let it lift me up which felt like I was flying. When I had it at my front I was fighting it to move forward. I really enjoyed today’s run.
Weather: cloudy, dry, very hard strong wind, 11C (51 degrees)
Distance: 6.4 K / 4 miles
Average time: 7:06 /km
Average speed: 8.4 km/hour
