Three steps forward…two steps back…

Delusions of grandeur…that’s me!  In my head I was planning it all out…once I got finished with finals, I will work my ass off to get below that magic number (known to me and my trainer) before school begins again in a month.

Yeah…suuuuuuure…whatever you say…

Felt icky on Monday and was kind of out of it for the Kines final.  Ok, so maybe just getting a little cold.  Well, the next morning I was have serious abdominal issues which caused me to make many trips to the bathroom.  Fast forward to today, Thursday, where not having the huge issues but now the weakness is apparent from my lack of eating or absorbing what I’m eating if you will.  But, I want to get past this so I refuse to let it be a bigger issue.  Charlene invites me to the track for a run…sure…sounds great…I could get out, get some fresh air and get back in the groove.

But my body has other plans…

About 1.5 miles in, my stomach gives me an ultimatum…continue running and I will make you sorry…I listened and stopped, walking the last half-mile.

Really?  2 measly miles???  I’m huffing and puffing over half of what I’m supposed to be running at least once a week.  Hence, 3 steps forward, 2 steps back.  I was at a level and this abdominal issue has knocked me back a peg or two.

Well, I won’t let it get me down.  I will get back on track and get back what I have lost, somewhat, from illness and then some.

Sunday I’ll be in Vernon running and will continue the momentum from there. 

For now I’m going to hydrate, rest, hydrate some more and rest some more…

While driving home, I blasted my favorite A7X song for motivation…

 Unbound (The Wild Ride)
Somewhere life is good, and things go as they should
it’s hard to find, but that’s alright yeah-ee-yeah!
Searching for the way, push harder everyday
It’s deep inside, that shining light yeah-ee-yeah!
But I’m scarred, by barriers placed in my path
I’m scathed…

This ride that takes me through life
Leads me into darkness but emerges into light
No one can never slow me down
I’ll stay unbound!

Sometimes when we’re young, and always on the run
It gets so dark and I know that place yeah-ee-yeah!
So don’t be too concerned, you got a lot to learn
Well so do I and we’ve got plenty of time yeah-ee-yeah!
Don’t fall off the track yet with so many races to go
Hold on

This ride that takes me through life
Leads me into darkness but emerges into light
No one can ever slow me down
I’ll stay unbound!

Some live so wrong, with what we do is each his own
Living in fear, end the shame for countless years
I never lived in fear I knew I’d die another day
I never viewed my life as something… slipping away

Some live so wrong, with what we do is each his own
Living in fear, end the shame for countless years

*Choir*
I never lived in fear I knew I’d die another day
I never viewed my life as something… slipping away

*Childs Singers*
There’s nothing here to take for granted
with each breath that we take
the hands of time strip youth from our bodies,
and we fade,
memories remain,
as time goes on.

There’s nothing here to take for granted
with each breath that we take
the hands of time strip youth from our bodies,
and we fade,
memories remain,
as time goes on.
