Just another day...

...on the stationary bike.

I felt like crap most of the day yesterday, so Tim and I scrapped our planned interval run on the track. I could barely get off the couch when he got home from work. I am still not feeling great today, but I felt well enough to brave a 30-minute bike ride.

I am *thinking* about trying the intervals this evening. It has been raining on and off all day, but if it lets up, and my body doesn't feel too wretched, then I might just go for it.

I have to get ready now to take Matty to his 12-month well-baby check up. He'll probably be getting some shots, which is always fun (not). If I do decide to run, I'll update this later.

Today's stats:
Time: 30-minute bike ride
Distance: 7.44 miles
Pace: approx. 4.02 minute/mile (I'd be AWESOME if I could run that fast!!! LOL!!!)

**UPDATE**

I am soooo not doing a run tonight! I am sick, sick, sick, and I think I know the reason why. I think I am having a flare of my Crohn's Disease. It's a digestive tract ailment with no cure that irritates and scars the insides of the intestines. Mine is located in my colon, and when I get a flare-up I get sick. I have to do a liquid diet for a few days now and take my meds to see if it calms down. I don't think I will be doing any running until I feel better. :(

****Note to my dad: I will be OK, I just need to rest and not eat solids for a few days and wait for the inflammation to die down. It sucks, but I will live.

Hope to see you guys around soon!!!!

Ah sorry to hear you're not feeling great, I have someone close to me who has Crohn's disease and you gotta take care of this carefully.

Hope you feel better soon and that you're back on your feet running soon! =)

I hope you get better soon.

What are you talking about. Babies love to get shots...right? Oh ya, mine were not really keen on them either. Christopher just had his 2-month shots (4 of them). He really didn't enjoy the experience.
