It’s been a week since I last posted and am happy to report the day after my Running with Babies post I successfully ran 10 early morning miles. Unfortunately that night I was hit with the terrible horrible stomach bug that’s been making its rounds. So needless to say, I haven’t run much since then. Typically when you have the stomach bug its pretty awful and you basically consume nothing because your body can’t handle it but it’s a special kind of torture to have a stomach bug when you’re breastfeeding. It literally feels like the baby is sucking your spirit out of your breast. Every time I nursed it would throw my stomach into revolt. So why not just give the kid some formula? I tried, he has successfully taken it a daycare but at home, he protested and screamed until I gave in and fed. He’s lucky he’s cute.
Wish me luck on getting my long run done tomorrow!
