Lunch: 8.7 miles, averaged 7:25. HR 149.
Pulled workout due to GI issues. Taking the rest of the day off.
Plan was 45' aerobic builder + long strides and about 2 hours of total work. I started to notice my stomach was going south during the warmup, which almost never happens. I don't think I ever has a workout cut short due to GI issues (they usually hit after the hard running). Got through 3 laps and was working on the 4th when I decided things weren't going to settled. I assumed the bathrooms were closed this time of year so I hit the woods (one of the fewer and fewer areas we haven't knocked down for cookie cutter subdivisions and strip malls).
I tried to restart after that but it wasn't going to work. I barely made a second pitstop at our apartment complex. The issue was likely the 3 FiberOne bars I slept at around 6:00 this morning when I feed the cats. Megan eats the bars and I haven't paid much attention to them for a few years but stress and anxiety make me snack like crazy and these seem to be my new target.
Splits: 6:26, 6:25, 6:17, 6:11 (for .67)
Felt decent during the workout if a bit tired and my legs weren't much interested in turning over fludily when the wind hit, but I was working into it and think the last 18-20' would have been pretty fast.
