4 KM

Today was my first experience of running in the day in Taiwan. It was about 35-36C, hotter in direct sunlight.

After having written a few posts and walked the dog, I felt like running. It didn’t matter that it was in the middle of the day.

Yesterday, I had some Coke and some Pringles. At least I didn’t have any chocolate. I paid for that the next day with the runs. After the morning, it got out of my system. Being on raw food and processed food don’t really mix, but I had that itch that wouldn’t subside. I’ve had a few crisps this year, but less than a small bag in total. I’ve had a bit of soda in the form of some apple soda or Orangina, but just 5 times this year. It doesn’t matter if you indulge a wee bit from time to time. What matters is that it doesn’t become a habit.

Otherwise, a mango/milk blend smoothie in the morning, with two eggs and some ham. I’ve been feeling queasy all day and I haven’t felt that good.

The run was hard. It felt like I had lost some of the work that I had put into my training. I’m looking into getting a bike to do some cross-training.

I managed to run 2.6 km in 17 minutes, and 4 km in 25. I would have been faster, but I was thirsty and didn’thave any hydration, plus I felt queasy. Something wasn’t right in my stomach. I was aiming for 5.2km, but I’m happy with what I accomplished as I hope to run once again later tonight.

Actually, I’m going to try and run twice a day for the next few days. Less mileage, but in more than one run a day.

Towards the end of the run, the underside of my foot started to be a bit sore, but I stopped before it became worse. I’m icing it down. I’m actually pretty tired. It’s about 5PM and I think i might have a quick nap before writing some more posts.
