Another great weekend filled with many activities and fun. I spent pretty much every minute with the little guy except for yesterday morning for a 12 mile run. Saturday night I was not feeling to great and think it was something I ate during the day. I didn't know I was going to run in the morning until around 8 at night. Woke up again before the alarm and was feeling ok, but I didn't feel like eating anything which is not good. Had a good run and we were going pretty good for most of the way. We ran on the greenway and stopped at the turnaround at the 4 mile mark and I had a GU. Not bad and it gave me a good boost for the next 4 miles. At this point we had to back track a couple of miles and I was starting to hurt, the guy I am running with had some clif shots again but this time he had pina colada flavor I think and wasn't as bad. It gave me a good boost for a couple of miles and then at the 11 mile mark I was spent. I had nothing in me and was hoping he would run on and I would meet him at the cars.
One thing I have learned about the Mike the guy I run with, he is a good motivator even though it is all marine related. See he is training for the marine corp marathon in October and has a friend or two that were/are in the marines. I did lots of training with the marines before and during my enlistment with the Coast Guard. I finally got him to run on and I slowly jogged the last mile or so and was completely spent. I didn't feel that bad once we stopped and stratched and drank more gatorade but when on the drive home and when I got home I was not feeling to great again so I took a shower and discovered that I had chaffed all of the sking in my private area, WOW!!! It hurt so bad that I didn't even think about my stomach issues. Spent the rest of the day with the big boy and wife and brought the big blow-up water slide to the back yard and big boy and his friend down the street played for hours on it and had a blast. Where were these things when we were growing up?
The wife and I are going away this weekend to a B&B in the mountains for our anniversary and plan on doing some good hiking. I am going to keep my running in the 4 to 6 mile range and more consistent in the next 2 weeks. Hope everyone has a good monday!
