Saturday PM 2.5 mile warm up, then 7 miles in 37:54- supposed to go much longer but NEEDED to go to the bathroom and then my stomach was finished and I stopped.

Sunday AM 4 miles with Melissa in 28:00- woke up with awful stomach pain.  Just got worse as day went on.  It hurt so bad on the run I couldn't talk.  People who've run with me will tell you it takes a lot to shut me up.

Summary- rough start to the year.  Melissa thought I might have appendicitis after she examined me, I didn't believe her but I was off work so I swung by her office and and her boss, my dr. examined me and said the same thing so they sent me to the ER. 5 hours of blood work, ultra sound, barium drinks and catscans later I was off the hook no appendicitis just a stomach virus.  The ER doc was funny. When I thank her for clearing me she said- "Frankly I can't believe it based on exam I would have just started treatment I figured the catscan was just a formality."  Anyway I don't care.  I'm feeling better and was able to jog a bit today but it was not a fun finish to my first week back.
