Waiting till my doctor’s appointment next Wednesday is long. So I called the assistant on Thursday to ask if my results came back already. Some did and it was good news. Two days before I went to see the doctor for my bowel, I had another appointment to take a swab to check on cervical cancer. The test came back positive, nothing wrong there.
The test on parasites/bacteriums and the working of my thyroid were positive. No parasites and my thyroid is working fine. The only test that wasn’t ready, was the one for glutes. It is possible that this is the problem but maybe they find nothing there either. I’ll wait till my appointment next Wednesday to be sure.
Update November 11: I never see a doctor so I’m not familiar with medical terms. I’m sorry I scared you with my positive tests. Guess they are negative which is positive for me. I’ve written it from my perspective: to me it’s positive the tests came out clean.
I had planned to walk a part of one of the trails I want to do on Friday. But I wasn’t sure how the weather would be. The walk would start at the beach and that part of the country gave a rain forecast. I decided to wait on a better day and instead I drove 15 minutes to a huge heathland where I never have been before. It was a beautiful piece of nature. There are cows and goats that keep the landscape “clean” in a natural way. I saw 2 cows but they were to far away to take a photo and I didn’t want to scare them off with Bella. I also saw 2 deers, I took a photo but they were to far away too and again, I didn’t want to scare them. It was a nice walk and I will definitely go back there again.
If you look very well, you can see the 2 dears in the background on the right of the tree.

It is raining a lot the past days. Every morning when I got up it was raining but on Wednesday I was lucky: it was dry. Moved on to week 5 of the 5K training program. I’m trying to run the intervals at a pace of 6:30/km and will slowly increase that if it keeps going well. This run went very well.

Running: 2-3-5-5-5 minutes.
Paces: 6:12 – 6:08 – 6:17 – 6:28 – 6:17

The sun was shining but there was also a drop of rain and I saw one of the most beautiful rainbows I have ever seen. I couldn’t capture in the photo completely but I could see the entire rainbow. The run went very well although I had some strong wind against me for a part of the run and the last 7 minutes of the run were tough. But everything considered it was a good run.
Distance: 4.5 K / 2.8 miles
Running: 2-3-6-6-7 minutes.
Paces: 6:17 – 6:12 – 6:30 – 6:25 – 6:27

Mac ham and cheese.
Saturday November 9
Just in case I am gluten intolerant, I made an apple pie like I always make it. You never know if it’s the last time, right?
For dinner I made a simple salade with walnuts and goat cheese with honey that I grilled for a while in the oven.
