Is It Bad...
... to pee blood after your run? Hmmm. So I get back from my 45 minute run. Felt great the entire time... threw in some tempo work at the high end of my Zone 3... it was good. It's the first time that I've gotten any quality work done since last Friday! I'm optimistic about being over the hump of my illness. Anyway... get back to the Y and grab my recovery drink before heading into the gym to get some core done... stop off at the bathroom and am shocked to see a steady stream of dark red blood hitting the back of the urinal! HOLY CRAP! What the HELL man!? No pain, no nausea, no signs or symptoms that ANYTHING is wrong... except for the crimson stream flowing from my manhood! I made some calls to some docs that I know and started hydrating. Everything cleared up after about 30 mins. All systems are a go... but GEESH! That was just plain ODD! After doing a google search about Hematuria (that's all scientific n shit huh?), apparently its not all THAT uncommon! I've just been lucky.
