Annual doctors appointment this past week.
Stomach issues from this past years trail runs are a bigger concern than I thought.
What is next. Another appointment with another doctor.
Doctors orders...10 miles running...rest...another 10 miles and so on.
More test on Feb. 1st
Do I need a plan B?
First Ultra race in 4 weeks.
Health is most important.
Can still train just have to split runs up throughout the day.
Thankful for the ability to still run.
Thankful for doctors who love running as much as me.
Thankful for my husbands support.
So today's long run went something like this.....
8:15 am - 8.5 miles on road with hills. Light rain with a few signs of snow.
12:25pm - 7 miles on the treadmill. I was holding a fast pace and loved it.
3:15pm - 6.5 miles on the road in total snow. It was beautiful. Peaceful.
TOTAL: 22 miles
Funny how when something you are passionate about means so much more when you are faced with the possibility of a plan B. Today's run seemed to last forever but I was able to get the miles in. I love training, running, and the understanding that my husband showed during all of my running madness today. He understands me and gets me for who I am.
