Monday, Monday, here again. This Monday I’m actually glad to be back a work. My weekend of running and just hanging around the house was enough for me to look forward to getting back to work. It was just one of those weekends that was really boring. Other than run, I didn’t do much besides chores and watch TV, 2 things I don’t really enjoy all that much.
Saturday’s long run was really great. I got up at 6am and was out the door early only to discover that it had rained over night and the temps had dropped a lot. Mid-50’s make me really happy. Plus those mile times are starting to come down, always a bonus.
Monday: 4.51 miles in 42:59, 9:32 average pace (Treadmill)

So on to that “interesting problem.” I’ve been having terrible heart burn while I’m running. It’s so bad that the back of my throat is just miserable and I can’t run without taking 2 Tums before hand. Thankfully the Tums seem to handle the problem but it’s really annoying if I forget to take them.
Friday was so bad that I kept having to take sips of water while I was running to keep the acid from my mouth. I might be over exadurating it, but boy was it bad. That burning sensation is just awful. It doesn’t seem to matter if I eat something or not before I run. I’ve had this occasionally in the past but this has been going on for at least the last week to 2 weeks.
Anyone deal with terrible heartburn while running? How do you handle it?
How were your runs last week? Anyone see anything fun/cool while running?
