I was forced into a longer than expected break. I scheduled to take August 1-7th off. I figured that my body needed recovery after the hard month, and we went to Cabo San Lucas for 6 dasy. Although I didn't run in Cabo, I walked a lot everyday around the enormous resort. I did water aerobics and zumba, although I didn't exactly push it.
My plan was to run about 30 miles from August 9-15th. My body had different plans. Last Tuesday, I was incapacitated by serious stomach cramps, nausea, diarrhea, etc. I thought that I had food poisoning or possibly a virus from Mexico. It got better, but when I finally went to urgent care, the doctor thought it was a bladder infection that might have spread to my kidneys I haven't felt great this week, so I haven't run at all. Everyday, I hope that my side won't be hurting, but everyday it hurts. I will probability run tomorrow, no matter what.
Between August 1-15th, I've run once--the morning route.
