Low-grade sickness

All last week I had a sort of low-grade sickness going on: chills, itchy throat and major stomach pains. For a while I thought I had E Coli, but then decided it was just a nasty combo of heat, work stress and smog. Anyhow, I won’t bore you all with the details, but suffice to say I was exhausted and even started thinking that I might be anemic. Vegetarian +woman+ runner? I probably should check those iron levels because all I wanted to do all day, everyday was sleep.

I managed to get in three runs + one day of CORE

7 miles on Tuesday

5 on Wednesday + CORE

13 on Sunday

Not what I had planned, but hey sometimes you get what you get.

This week my dad arrives! I can't wait to run and bike with him.


Monday: 3 miles

Tuesday: 6

Wednesday: cross train CORE

Thursday: 7

Friday: cross train CORE

Saturday: LR 10 miles with Dad 5 on my own

Sunday: 4 mile recovery


  1. I hope you're feeling better! I'm a huge wimp when it comes to stomach issues, so I'm impressed that you still got in a fair number of miles.

    Enjoy your time with your dad!

  2. Hello, let me follow you on the blog, because as an expatriate runner in the USA, I find very interesting comments from a runner expatriate in Spain. Regards
