I haven’t been running for almost a week now. But I just did 2 hours ago. I was puffing every 500 meters that I have to stop, catch my breathe, walk then run again. I only manage to finish 6km. Looking back, I was wondering how I manage to join and actually finish that 102km race that I joined 2 years ago hahahaha! I need to get back my old fitness level. I need to cut my carbs and get back my optimum running weight (that is 130lbs, but I’m 160lbs now damn it!) I need to run more because that the cheapest fix I know of. If I don’t run, my relationship with people, friends and family will be hell. Running keeps me sane, helps me stop taking some medicines to deal with my internal demons and makes things easier for me. I need to run more….now when should I start
I just ran minutes ago and I confirmed that the cause of blood on my pee during my run a week ago was caused by an empty bladder. I ran 3 times for the past 6 days and in all those runs where I drank 1 glass of water before the run, the color of my urine looked normal. So there you go, no more worries for me. My next worry is my weight, it must go down!
After a 10km run this morning, my urine still contains blood. I feel like a guy on period and I should warn everyone around me this week to be extra cautious of my unnecessary mood swing. Seriously, this is freaking me out. I shall go St. Lukes to have it check. I expect some x-ray or that painful injection of dyed ink to my bloodstream to check out any blockage on my urethra or any stone in my kidney. What makes it especially interesting is the blood in my urine only shows up after a run. Is my gallbladder grew up so big ever since I also grew so big that they started causing friction on other organs, causing me to bleed? Are my kidneys no longer normal after a month of taking this multivitamin? We will see
There was a side-story after my run this morning. My urine contains blood when I urinated after the run. I frantically posted an FB message to check if this is normal and the conclusion was, go see a doctor. I didn’t go for the doctor, instead I went to a clinic for urinalysis. Here’s the result: RBC: 0-2/HPF Pus Cell: 0-2/HPF Albumin: Negative Sugar: Negative pH: 5.0 Mucus Threads: FEW Amorphous Urates/Phospates: FEW It looks normal but I will go and visit a doctor next week. The last time I urinated with so much blood was when a small stone actually exited my penis. I remember I was about to undergo a lithotripsy when I decided I should go for alternative medicine and there you go, I was actually able to pass out the stone naturally. I wonder if this is the same case this morning. I didn’t notice a stone coming out but I felt somewhat relieve. I shall try running again tomorrow morning and see if there will be another blood in my urine. If there is, then you know I’m royally screwed
Funny how I blogged about getting back to running asap, but I only started to run almost a week later. I realized that what kept me from running was not that I hate running, but I have a hard time waking up each morning and actually doing it. For the past 6 days, I my clock would alarm at exactly 5:00 am, I would put it into snooze several times and the next thing I know, its already 7:00 am. Well, it seems to me that maintaining a discipline to actually start doing it was the toughest part and I can only blame myself for it. Eh bakit nga ba di ako nakakatakbo sa umaga? Well I lack sleep, and I need sleep. My working habit these days have been very unhealthy. I would accept some projects, work up until 2am and sleep. How could you run at 5am that way? Hahahahaha! But since we have a very long weekend I decided everything must stop and I must reward myself of a nice run. So this morning, I actually attempted to run. And I did it successfully. I woke up at 5am, change into my running clothes, and ate my son’s 2 small toblerone chocolates he got from trick and treat last week. God I wonder how he would react when he starts looking for them…Anyway, so there I go, I actually ran. I ran 12km at 6:30min/km-6:45min/km and my [&hellip
