Training Updates- Week of 8/31/09

I’m so excited it’s September. Spring is considered the season of rebirth, but for me it’s the fall. It means the cool, crisp air will be rolling in shortly. Pumpkin flavored goodies will be making their debut in stores. It’s our chance to wind down after a hectic summer of activities. I’m already daydreaming about those early Sunday mornings…..sitting on the deck wrapped in a blanket, sipping my coffee with no where to rush off to.

I love the fall.

I'm late to the game with the updates this week....blogging from NJ. Although I’m still waiting on my upcoming urology appointment, I've returned to a more regular training routine. My episodes have lessened, and seem to manifest mainly after my runs or when I’ve been doing a lot of bending and lifting, like picking up E or unloading groceries from the car. I don’t have hypertension, sharp pain, bloating or anything else that would point to a kidney or urological disorder, so by diagnosis of exclusion it looks like a simple case of runner’s hematuria as my OB/GYN suggested.

M’s hanging in there too. I’m very proud of him. He’s been working out at least 3 times a week, and I can see he’s doing much better on his runs. He’s also lost 6 pounds he didn’t have to lose, and has added Muscle Milk shakes to supplement his diet. Grr…men.

Last week’s training:

Monday: off
Tuesday: 7 mi run
Wednesday: 7 mi run w/ stroller
Thursday: 7 mi run w/ stroller, M joined for the last 3
Friday: um, bowling...accompanied by beer and pizza
Saturday: 7 miles w/ stroller
Sunday: 70 mins elliptical, abs, pushups
