Saturday was a great day! It was so much fun to work with my colleagues in a different place then we normally do. It also was a long day, I left at 7.15 am and got home at 7.30 pm. Saturday night I did nothing more than sit on the couch with my book and a glass of wine. My feet and legs were killing me of standing and walking all day. Here’s a pic of me with my two favourite male colleagues.
Friday afternoon I got the results back from the doctor about my stomach. There’s nothing wrong with me. That’s a relief of course but I still have had some problems last week. The doctor gave me the advice to watch my food, eat enough fibres, exercise (which I already do of course) and get enough sleep. And if it happens again: find out what I’ve eaten before. My intestines might be irritable and there’s nothing to do about it, only try to live as healthy as possible.
I’ve been writing down my food in a notebook for over a week now and also write down when I go to the bathroom. I’ve had troubles with my stomach twice: today and Tuesday last week and on both days I had a salad for lunch. The other days I didn’t eat a salad at lunch and didn’t have troubles.
Guess I must not eat that at lunch anymore. I’m going to keep writing down my food for a couple of weeks to find out if there is other food that causes problems.
Today I had to do my speedwork run. I had to run 11.2K (7 miles) and do 3 times 1.6K (1 mile). It was hard, I always find speedwork the hardest run to do. The first 3K my right leg was really hurting, at 4K I thought about turning around but then I had to run the same way back and I don’t like running the same road twice and I kept going. After that my leg was fine but I had trouble breathing and finding the right pace and I stopped a lot during the run and wanted to quit so many times. I kept telling myself to go on and I did. Now a couple of hours later I’m happy I didn’t give up.
