A month without running (life update/ race recap)

Hi!

Around here it may be more than a month without posting.

There’s a reason… (read down below)

3rd 5k of the year RECAP:

My third 5k running event was this past month. November 4.

I was very relax the night before, I usually have anxiety or couldn’t sleep. For this event I wasn’t nervous at all which is amazing. I was so confident and happy and looking forward to participate. I arrange everything at night so in the morning I can get ready fast and everything is on hand. I wakeup early took my time… relax. Since I start driving there I notice that start raining I was like this is going to be a rainy run which is not bad but it was a little cold so it will be interesting. I get there and the rain doesn’t stop so this is it. The welcoming to the runner was very different during this run and very particular.

This event was a run to Honor the Veterans. They talk about different topics, they pray, and they also mention everyone serving and currently deploy. It was a little to emotional for that early but I felt grateful that they do that, that they take time and honor those that risk they life for our freedom. It was amazing. I went with amore (husband) and my baby. My husband ran faster than me so he took the baby on the stroller. Let me tell you the baby had a blast during the run. I was nice having my family there waiting on the finish line.

But before getting there let’s talk about DURING the run. I was so positive and smily all the time. (this was a goal of mine. Be more cheerful and It went well and it felt amazing.) This run was very different from the other two 5k this year. Rain and HILLS yep you read that right. Hills which I haven’t run in one since I move here a year ago. At first I was like very worried about the hills but in the process I felt like “I can do this” and I did it. i finish the 5k non-stopping again YESSS!!! I did a good time also perhaps th rain and the hills. Is not a pr or pb but it was AMAZING and I enjoy it. That the key, enjoy what you do, and do it with your heart.

 

Life Update:

Two days after the 5k event I was at home. It was early when I start feeling a sharp and intense pain in the flank side on the right. It felt awful and it didn’t go away. So I call to make a appoitment with my primary doctor. It didn’t work he was busy so they recommend the urgent care. So I went there and they sent my to the hospital because it maybe something more serious and it was. I went to the the hospital, they took differents test, also a ct scan to know what the hell I have. They came with the results long hours later telling me that I have a kidney infection and a kidney stone. (Nothing new for me, but the pain is very serious.) They send me home… few days later I visit them again because the pain medication wasn’t helping at all. It was horrible and felt very misarable. They gave me something stronger that work but this took two weeks to me start recovering from the infection and the stone that was on the way. ( Thanks God this kidney stone wasn’t stuck , which I had in the past  and is not fun. I wrote about it in the past.)

To many doctor appointments later.

Feeling grateful I finally feel better and myself again.

The doctor gave me green light to start running so  I start December with a run 1.00mi.

It felt nice not running for a while but I miss it. Now I’m not training for any event in the near future. I will run just for fun.

 


Thanks for visiting!

Looking forward to post more… >>>>
