SO I went to the gym and just did the bike for 30 minutes, elliptical for 30 minutes and 40 minute Bob Harper DVD. I was hoping that Saturday would be a better day to run, maybe the sun might just be out a little.
When I got up this morning it was cloudy and gloomy. DARN IT. The sun was suppose to be out at least a little. I get all my running gear on and head to town to drop all my water bottles off, so I will have something to drink during my run. As I'm driving to drop my bottles off it's starting to mist outside. DARN IT. It's not looking good but I don't have a choice I need to get this 20 miler done today.
My leg were feeling really good as I was starting out. It felt like my legs just new what they were suppose to be doing. BOY, I like it when I can get that feeling. At mile 6, I stop an take a Gu and get a drink. I get back on the road and keep on truck in. At mile 10, I'm feeling so good I actually think I could go on for ever. Than mile 12 comes my stomach is starting to give me fits. I'm think this is not good. Trying to find a ditch when cars keep going by is kind of hard sometimes, but I found one and let loose. Feeling alittle better. I get back on the road and keep on trunk in. As I'm running back into town my stomach is starting to feel funny again. I try to keep on running, but my stomach is turning and I really need to take another dump, BADLY. Thank Goodness there is a Casey's store up the street. I'm running a little faster hoping I will make it to the bathroom and I'm also praying that know one is in the bathroom or all Hell is going to break loose. I mean that literally. To my relief no one was in the bathroom. Do you remember that old Alka Seltzer commerical that went like this Plop Plop Fizz Fizz OH What a relief it is. That is totally how I was feeling at that moment.
By now I just want to get this run over with, because my stomach is not agreeing with me. I still have 6 miles to go. I get started running again and decide to just take one mile at a time. At mile 18, I had to make another pit stop and decide to go ahead and take my last Gu. I'm saying to myself I only have 2 miles to go I can get this done. So I got back out there and finished those last two miles.
