I’m shuffling my workouts around a bit this week, and I did the 35 minute tempo run today instead of yesterday. It went well enough, but I probably pushed a bit harder than I should have.
Yesterday I had an unpleasant GI episode. Something caused my guts to blow up like a balloon, leaving me massively bloated and in pain. It’s much better today, but all that running and jostling didn’t really help. I made it through the fast part of the tempo run but in the last 10 minutes I had to stop and walk a couple times and wait for my bowels to settle down. Fun times!
I suspect it’s some kind of food sensitivity or allergy. I hate to self-diagnose, but foods that have triggered this kind of bloating in the past include noodles, pizza, pasta, and sandwiches, and I can’t help but connect the dots… I think I will eat carefully for a while.
