Sick

Took off for an afternoon run on Sunday - wanted to get up into the hills and get some trail miles in. It was in the 80s and a little windy, but not too bad. I was about 1/3 of a mile up the hill near my house when I decided that I wasn't feeling up to it - legs felt heavy, felt a little light-headed. Decided to turn around at the creativly named Lake Park and come back home a slightly different way. As it turned out, it was exactly one mile and 8 minutes...



I felt OK yesterday, which was my rest day, so didn't think anything of heading out for my workout and treadmill speedwork this morning. Went OK, only did two intervals of 6:00, but I've been going faster (6:30 pace) so I figured I just need to work into the faster speed.



Started feeling a bit nauseous on the way home, and crashed out on the couch for awhile. After I got up and showered, I started feeling really bad. At the point now where I'm running back and forth to the bathroom every fifteen minutes, trying (or trying not) to hurl. Yuk. Hope this blows over quick...

Sick and working out just don't mix. I've gotten really sick a couple times because I over-exerted myself right before I knew I was getting sick, and wore down my body so the virus could take a good strong hold and linger way longer than it would have otherwise. Good thing our relay isn't for another week and a half... Hope you feel better soon!
