My week started off splendidly with a two day getaway to Destin Florida with my hubby! We knew if we didn’t take a trip now, it probably wouldn’t happen. We have not been on a trip just the two of us in a year and a half. With three children, it’s hard to find time to ourselves. My love, my soul mate for nearly 15 years! Sunset on Monday night.
We headed home Tuesday and I promised my husband I wouldn’t pout. The beach is my happy place and we had a busy schedule waiting on us at home. I knew I would not be able to run Wednesday or Thursday morning so I ran Tuesday evening. This run felt like I had been at the beach eating too much and drinking wine for two days 😆🤢.
Wednesday: My son had a two and a half hour vision therapy session in Hattiesburg. He has been struggling in school and will have to go to therapy once a week for the next several months. We are hoping his new glasses and visual therapy will bring his grades up. Cayne’s new glasses 👓
I ran the Flex it Pink virtual 5k Run for the bOObies later Wednesday afternoon. It was HOT and I struggled through it. By this time I was not feeling well having to rush to Cayne’s therapy and back home, pick our girls up from school and take them to church. I squeezed the 5k in while the girls were at church and went straight to pick them up after I was done. My side started hurting and I’m guessing it was my kidney stone acting up 🙄. ER doc discovered I had a stone back in May and as far as I know it’s still there. My nurse practitioner said I may feel pain if I am dehydrated so that made sense. I was probably dehydrated from our trip and not drinking enough water after two hot runs.
By the time I got home from the field trip, I wasn’t feeling well again. My chest was so tight and I was having trouble taking a deep breath. Still have no idea what caused it, but I missed my daughter dancing at their championship football game. I was so upset. I bet I cried a full 24 hours over missing her game. I felt like I disappointed my daughter. I am 9 weeks post abdominal surgery and had to miss two other games recovering. The last thing I want to do is let anybody down, but even 9 weeks later, I still get tired easily.
Friday: I rested Friday morning and Cayne’s teacher called and said he was complaining about his stomach hurting. I picked him up from school and he did have upset stomach twice. By this time, I was completely exhausted. My mom let Cayne spend the night and the girls went to work with their Daddy. I got in 2.25 evening miles.
13.35 miles logged for the week, but zero strength training. Hopefully I can get back on schedule this week.
