I could not decide what I wanted to eat for lunch today. Everything I wanted was veggies. I knew I needed some kinda protein though so I kept searching the cupboards.
I finally decided on salmon lettuce wraps.Canned salmon, great northern beans, celery, and brown mustard mixed together and served on romaine lettuce. The lettuce I had didn’t really cater to “wrapping”, so I guess these were more like lettuce boats.
They were really good!!! With Veggie Patch spinach and corn nuggets on the side. I think I like the corn ones better than the spinach ones.
My run started off wonderfully. The weather was beautiful- 63 degrees & sunny. I was running in capris and a short sleeve shirt for the first time this year. A few miles in, it started getting cloudy & gray. I could feel the temperature dropping- instead of getting hotter the longer I ran, I was actually getting colder. I didn’t mind any of this- I was hoping the rain would hold off, but I didn’t really care about getting wet. I’ve run in the rain before- I don’t melt.
But about 4 miles in, my stomach rebelled. I had parked my car in the middle of the route I wanted to run so I could stop off for a gel and some water a little more than half way through the run. Luckily that I also meant there was a visitor’s center nearby. I ran the 3 or 4 more miles to the visitor’s center, but unfortunately my stomach was still killing me. I decided to just run the mile-ish loop around the visitor’s center so I’d be nearby. I made it about another 1/2 mile before I realized it was a futile effort. I called it a day and headed home.
I’m really really hoping it’s an upset stomach from something I ate or running, but I’ve never felt like this from running. I still have chills & the sweats. Ugh. Not fun. I’m hoping it goes away soon! I always always have a post-run snack, but it’s just not happening today. Not yet anyways.
I did however, make it 8.8 miles in 1:29 before I bailed.
Gotta love the side-effects of running 😉
