Hungry Hungry Laurel

Last night's run was a success- mostly. I did 16.5 miles and felt ok, but I did get incredibly bored toward the end. My muscles felt good! I had to take some bathroom breaks, which was annoying, but it gave me a chance to rest. I ate 2 granola bars and drank so much water. I also took some walking breaks once I passed the halfway point, but I'm ok with that.

And then... all hell broke loose. I have always had GI issues associated with long runs, and I'm never really hungry right after a run, but usually I am able to choke something down. I drank a ton of water on the ride home, and then got down to the business of refueling, but my body wouldn't let me. I made a little cheese sandwich with all my favorite condiments, and ate about 3 bites... then upchucked all 3 of those bites. It wasn't because I drank too much water, it was just straight tummy rejection. I waited a while, showered and stretched and then tried to eat again. I got some cottage cheese down successfully, and an egg. Then I realized I had not had any carbs or veggies, so I had some V8. That was the only really yummy part of my evening. Sleep was awful because my stomach was still getting rowdy and my restless legs were in full force. Ugh.

So, in summary, I am not feeling rejuvenated today. I feel alright, as far as muscles, some weird soreness in my inner thighs but I am TIRED and sort of hungry but I'm afraid to eat too much. I'm eating one thing at a time in hopes that if something is going to be puked up, maybe it will at least be isolated? Banana. Wait an hour. Egg. Wait an hour. Cheerios. Wait. Cheese. Wait. On the plus side, I get to eat all day! Sort of awesome! :)

This afternoon I'll be going out for a hopefully long, slow bike ride, running 800 errands, and getting ready for Emily's wedding tomorrow! Cannot wait to see her and all of my old high school friends. Yay!
