Bad Stomach in Babylon

Daily Note

Woke up @ 8:30am and did 50 push-ups, 20 squats, 20x core circuit, and balancing. Ran from Skog @ 3:30pm when the weather was 26 degrees, 8 mph winds, and mostly sunny. Although warmer than yesterday, things were surprisingly chilly. Also made the mistake again of not eating any lunch. After two days this week in which I thought a big breakfast would be enough (and ending up realizing the error in my thinking on the run), I'm officially swearing off these 'no lunch' days. Simply, put I was not looking forward to today's effort and felt zapped of energy. In addition, my stomach felt terrible on the run. Lots of discomfort made things pretty miserable starting around mile three, (that was after getting overly annoyed with the freshmen for the first three miles), and the belly didn't get much better until maybe the last mile or so. Did Whore of Babylon with Justin, Bill, Plumb, Turtle, Isaac, and Cian. Right calf was tight and cardio was average. Finished by heading out to S#*% Shack Road and adding on in the parking lot. Not an enjoyable pre-meet today, but got the necessary work done. Back inside I did 4x100m strides spiked up. These felt decent. Finished out the day with calf raises, toe tappers, rolling, stretching, and the Elliot Core Routine. Supermans harder than normal, but otherwise feeling pretty solid with this routine. PF7s @ 84.9 miles.
