well I have been super sick with some stomach thing so for awhile it was whatever I could keep in my stomach (which for days was pretty much ginger ale and plain baked potatoes). I am better now so I need to get back on track with my eating habits and really start watching my sugar intake and carb intake. I plan on being pretty low carb this week and then ramping it up big time next week before the marathon.
I rocked this! I have been getting about 8 hours of sleep a night and even got a few naps in this weekend. I feel caught up on sleep and well rested even though I am craving coffee haha. I am hoping to keep getting 7-8 hours of sleep leading up to the LA Marathon in just less than 2 weeks
Well this is where life has been crazy. I got super sick after the Princess Half and pretty much stayed like that until Friday. I think it was a stomach virus because I couldn't eat anything and when I did I couldn't keep anything in my stomach. I feel much better now and still never figured out what made me so sick but I am sad that I did not get to enjoy my WDW experience to its fullest.
Since I was sick, I decided to just not do workouts until Friday night. I must have flared something because during my run my sciatica kicked up again! ugh! I spent the weekend rolling and stretching and sitting on a heating pad (just like I am doing now) and i definitely think it will be better for this weekend. I know I am in a Taper for the LA Marathon but this is a little extreme!
This weekend was amazing because I literally had no plans! I got plenty of sleep, did my grocery shopping, got to cook many meals and got to finally watch some Oscar winning movies (obsessed with Boyhood, hated Birdman with a passion). I haven't had a weekend with nothing planned in so long. Now it sucked my sciatica flared up but I definitely have it under control now and may even try to run a bit tomorrow (a big maybe...).
How was your week?
