It was eight days after the last Imodium that I took another one. I wanted to see how well I could manage without it. Things were good for the first five days but they got progressively worse and I took one last night. It allowed me to sleep well last night and I'll take another one early in the morning as I have a 1.25 hour drive. I have an upcoming trip and I will probably take Imodium on a daily basis so that I am more or less functional during the day. I hope that I don't monopolize the bathroom too much (we have two bathrooms for part of the trip).
It's 8:00 PM on Sunday and I'm at the office working on something that I was supposed to finish yesterday. Maintenance work which is higher priority right now, has pushed project work off. I will likely be working while on vacation (high-tech in the US is often like that). I have some oldies blasting away in my office with the door open.
I ordered the Garmin Fenix 5 Plus which does almost everything a watch can (it doesn't have LTE and ECG like Apple's Watch). It arrives in two days and I'm eager to start using it so that I don't have to take my heart rate manually anymore. I've asked my son if he wanted my Forerunner 630 watch and he said that he'd take it. I've asked him if he wanted one many times and he always said not - but I'm guessing that I was assuming that he'd have to pay for it. He asked if it had maps on it and I said no. It has to be used with a phone or PC for maps.
The Garmin 5S/5S Plus is a little smaller and here's an example of the 5S Plus - the 5S models come in some very nice colors. The other two models have fewer choices.
I've run at least a mile for the past five days but won't get any running in today unless I finish early which looks very unlikely right now. It's nice that I'm feeling well enough to put in decent hours at work though.
