great 'O' Rated Run 11 km 01:05 09:31 pace

For those not in the know or who forgot, that tittle means read at your own risk as I am about to maybe give too much information. Had my mind set that I was not going to run as per plan and do 4 X 1.6 km speed drills at the gym. The ingested sugar in the last few days made sure of that as my body was 'tut tutting' me this morning. Was about 1.5 km into my run when I had to do a turn around and head back home for a potty break. No big brown code, just a little...let's say starts with 'f' and rhymes with heart. Once I got home, rushed to the bathroom and once things were cleaned up, headed out again. I'm sure it must have happened to a lot of you out there. Some of you would admit to it, some not. That's OK! No need to share as I do. I work in a hospital and am used to natural body functions. When you do CPR on a person, you don't care what other body things are going on, you're concentrating on getting the flat line on the screen to stay active and then self sustained. Team was unsuccessfull on the first case last week. Was relieved with success on the second one only to note that the other person also passed away. Life can deal you a bad deck. Hug your loved ones people! Medical personnel are not miracle workers. We do our best. Do yours and keep yourselves healthy and safe. Off to work. Will hug my loved ones tomorrow as I celebrate the hollidays with 2 of my children. :+)

    Another great run by Rina, Bravo!. Living with someone who has been battling with cancer and all of its complications for the last 5 years, we are "regulars" at several hospitals in the region. My wife and I can`t say enough good things about all the people who make this health care system of ours work. You are all so kind and so giving, it is just amazing. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!

    Always important to remember to value our loved ones, no matter what! And I'm guessing many of us are experiencing lots of GI issues as we recover from Xmas meals. But you got your run done!

    You know it is kind of funny you mention the staying healthy thing. I spent yesterday at my parents house nearly everyone of my family mentioned something about how much I train and how it is going to kill me. Let's see, one brother needs to have both his knees replaced because he ahs worn out the cartlidge because he is so over weight, another bro had a bad back because of the same reason, and another bro I was looking at is probably pushing 325 pounds. 5 years ago I was on that same course.

    I would much rather die making myself fit than do so stuffing food in my face. I used to have heartburn so bad I could not sleep at night. My back was always hurting. No more heartburn and if my back ever hurts it is because I overworked it not because my gut was putting stress on it.

    Thanks all for your understanding and great comments! I might almost always seem cheery on here, but there are days where it's hard for me to see the positives in life. Then I come on this site and find a spark somewhere on someone's post or comment and it brightens my day, or has me realise that we all have our hard times along this road of ours. Yes Ruth. Life is often hit and miss. Try as you may, you can't control what anyone else does with their life. Sending you all (((((((HUGS))))))) lol :+)
