I got some sort of thing going on with my stomach. I think I got it from Elena this past weekend as she was having tummy trouble and so were Joe and Amber last week. Oh great, anyway it's a real pain in the ass and that's both figuratively and literally. I was going to run for 75 minutes yesterday but ended up with just over an hour after a mid run pitstop. My stomach was just in knots the entire run. ***WARNING NEXT SENTENCE CONTAINS GRAPHIC INFORMATION*** I just can't seem to keep any food down, it goes in and it comes right back out in about 10 minutes.***END OF WARNING*** I'm worried that I'm not getting enough calories. Plus the humid weather and staying hydrated is a pain. Hopefully it will gone soon and that my immune system is full kick virus/bacteria butt mode.
I slept in today. Woohoo!! I decided to skip swimming for a couple of reasons. First, I was planning on just a swim off day. Second, with this stomach bug I was up 3 times during the night to take care of business so I didn't get much sleep anyways. Oh well, it was worth a shot.
I might try to get me a cheap Mac computer. Yes, I said Mac. I saw the cool video editing that Joe was able to do with a movie he took of Elena's karate sparring that I might just go the Mac route. The only thing I ever did on my PC was play games and I haven't done that in ages. I just hear from friends that they are so easy to deal with and my PC with XP is just pissing me off. I mean the thing takes forever to boot up and shut down. It's storing all my pictures/videos/music on it but that's about it. I have my Polar software for tracking my rides but I rarely use it. I'm not sure if the Verizon music store works on Mac but now with Amazon and other music services offering DRM free music I won't be using the music store anyway for new stuff. Plus if I go with a small Mac laptop its just more convenient overall. I know nothing about Macs though so we'll just have to see how they sell on Ebay.
