Early morning, I got the dogs taken care of and I headed out for my run. I took Wednesday off since I had a really horrible night’s sleep but Thursday I started the day off feeling great.
I did my normal 1 mile loop and I RAN THE WHOLE THING.
Hellz yes! No walk breaks and no legs that felt really tired. I pushed myself to see if I could do it. I told myself that I had to run until I got to the last street by my house and I made it. Since that’s the end of the run, I said I needed to run until I hit that one mile mark.
And I did! Hooray! I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to be a distance runner again since the elevation totally kicks my ass but I can see myself at least getting up to 10K distance.
Oh the run is still slow as molasses on a winter’s morning but I did it! I can see the light at the end of the running tunnel.
Thankfully I got my run done in the morning because the rest of the day was spent on the couch and making multiple runs to the bathroom. UGH
For breakfast I sauteed up some mustard greens and added in the leftover pulled pork. I seasoned all that with a little salt, pepper, garlic powder, and a small bit of maple syrup to cut the bitterness of the greens.
This is where things started to go down hill. That pork didn’t sit right with me and I was paying for it the rest of the day.
Lunch was basically a snack because I couldn’t keep much in my system so I didn’t want to over do it.
I had a large mug of broth for some powerhouse nutrients and a large apple with some almond butter.
Stomach churned the rest of the day but I was able to stay out of the bathroom. Whew!
Dinner was also very light because again, I didn’t think I could handle anything heavier. We had some oven fries, both were seasoned with salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and chili powder. One set had some shredded cheddar added.
I was able to keep that down as well!
I hate to blame the BBQ takeout but this all started after I ate that for breakfast. No. More.
More light foods are on the menu for today, not taking any chances!
