Well, my ickiness is definitely still dogging me. I haven’t had one run this year where I didn’t have some stomach discomfort. It is really very unpleasant. So, as reminded by SpeedyDMD, it is better to get Long Slow Distance in than to call it off entirely.
I had the day off today so I went out into the midday sunshine and did 6miles. They felt aggravatingly slow, about 2min/mi slower than my typical pace, and it wasn’t totally comfortable (I was in a bit of a rush to get home afterward) but it felt OK. More OK than any runs lately and longer than any runs in a long time.

I love being able to run in the middle of the day. Especially when I don’t have to rush back to work. I LOVE holiday weekends!
This whole weekend was so awesome, I feel like I really needed it. My sweetie, knowing how much I love the Olympics, took me to a sports bar to watch the opening ceremonies. We went to Jillian’s in Seattle and did a bit of video game Olympics ourselves, Air Hockey and video-skiing. Then TheCaptain schooled me in Ms. Pacman.

Saturday I packed and cleaned a bit for my big move to Redmond and then we met up for Chinese New year dinner.
Sunday I had the BEST Valentine’s Day ever! We did very little but did it all together. We had brownie waffles for breakfast and then TheCaptain made me yummy yummy trout for dinner. We watched lots of Olympics. I gave him the Scrabble wine charms I made and was VERY proud of my craftiness :)
Having today off and getting in a good run was definitely icing on the cake.
