Anyways, the last few days have not been so good for me with this thing called. Chrohns. Let's just say we have NOT been friends and it's been putting a damper on my eating and working out especially.
I had all intentions of going to run on Monday but that jut didn't happen between the monsoon going on and my stomach. So yesterday after I ended up getting off of work early I was determined that no matter what I was going to go.
On my way home while my husband was driving I scrolled through my Facebook posts and saw this that my friend Jackie posted:
We responded back and forth and decided it was the perfect push we both needed to get to the gym. To prove we were there we'd take a picture when we for there :)
Throwing my clothes on and heading out the door I went to the gym. Half way there I realized that maybe I should have driven the ARC there and hoped I didn't stall out in some of the areas flooded.
I made it! This was going to be a quick workout today, due to some mommy schedules, so I decided to get on the ARC and do some leg workouts and get some mileage in too ( what kind of machine is this anyway?)
As I tried to take a picture for Ms. Jackie the machine asked the question for me..
That was kind of funny! Cell phone service stunk and it never went through to her :(
I was doing really good until this one stinky lady decided to get on to the machine literally next to me. Pew! "Lady! I am the only one on these machines of all 25 of them in a row and you have to get on right next me with that awe full perfume?" Yes that's exactly what I thought! So I stopped, took a picture of my workout, and went to a treadmill in the middle of no where again.
Talking back and forth with Jackie was fun. It actually made me smile a few times.
I was having a great run breaking in my new Saucony Ride 7's and then what do you know the stomach started to act up. I even swigged some Imodium when leaving the house so I wouldn't have a problem and that didn't seem to work today. After about 3/4 of a mile I was getting horrible cramps. So I ended up doing some walk/ running thinking it would pass buy not today. I could only get in over a mile and I had to stop. Ugh!
Well thanks to Jackie posting on Facebook I got to the gym and so did she. Sometimes you need that extra push to get you out there even on your worst day!
So today I have a question for you.
QOTD: Have you ever ran with someone virtually? Or has anyone given you that push to keep going when you enacted to stop? Comment below.
