I'm really goofed up in my schedule. Rather than run in the morning like I should be doing, I waited until late afternoon. I only ran 1.5 miles before I gave up and went home. My problem was that I ate lunch about an hour before I went running, and I had a hard time breathing while I was out. Eating that close to my run was a dumb thing to do. I've made that mistake many times in the past, and one would think I would have learned my lesson about eating and running. I need at least two hours between a good meal and my running. I can eat a small amount of easy digestible food before I run, such as a handful of Cheerios or a piece of dry toast shortly before I run, but not much more than that. Another mistake that I made yesterday, which actually led to my eating too much for lunch, was that I skipped breakfast.
The sky during my run was overcast, but there was no noticeable wind. The temperature was in the mid 40s (F).
Both of my legs are swelling during the day, and I've decided to cut my distance down a bit to see if that helps reduce the swelling. Most of my runs this Spring and probably Summer and Fall will be 2-3 miles, with occasional jaunts of 5 miles. I'm not too worried about the swelling, because it does significantly decrease during the night. This swelling is a new thing that started about a month ago. One nice thing that my reduced distance will allow me to do is to run longer before I walk. I'm currently running 3 minutes, and I'll slowly increase that up to 5 or 6 minutes.
