back to the pains of high school


: 6.00 Mile(s) : 00:56:08 : 00:09:21.33 /mile : Orange Hoka Clifton #2 : 0.0

Daily Note

Went into this run a little anxious because my stomach has been very messed up since yesterday, likely gluten related due to my symptoms. I tried to tell myself it was going to be fine, but my thoughts immediately went back to my days of getting sick at my high school practices and during runs. I tried to run off campus, but after about a mile, I turned around because I just had a feeling that I should. This feeling was spot on because about 0.2 miles from campus I started to feel extremely sick and unfortunately I did get very sick. After this, I did feel a little better which was wonderful. In moments like these, I find myself starting feeling very frustrated that this will be something that I have to deal with for the rest of my life and I also find myself dwelling on this. However, dwelling on this is not going to change anything and also it sucks that I have to deal with this. It is teaching me that I will not let this control my life and that I can learn to be adaptable such as just running all on campus in case I get sick and still getting my miles in. I can't say I am happy with the pace of this run (although the time of the first 2 miles dragged the average pace down) I am happy that I pushed through the pain, got my miles in, and adapted my run to how my body felt today.
