Let's begin with last night. I had a good uneventful run after work and went to bed. Last night I dreamed like crazy, I also got up in the middle of the night all stuffy and miserable and had to take medicine. I woke up with a splitting headache and exhausted from my dreams. My dreams seemed very real ,were very intense, and didn't have a happy ending. I wonder if cold medicine gives you crazy dreams?
So off to work I go not feeling very well, which made me not eat much all day. Mostly just watermelon all day because I think the cold medicine makes me feel dried out. I planned to go out and get lunch this afternoon and couldn't because we had some folks come in unexpected. When I could have finally gone to eat it was 4:00 and I get off at 5:00.
So I arrive at Martin's salad bar pretty hungry. By the time I was home and had gobbled my salad it was about 6:20 and the plan was to run at 7:00 p.m. with Kasey.
We started out pretty well, but my tummy starting gurgling a few miles in and then the bloating started and the nausea! Ugh!! I hate feeling bad on a run. I made it to the 45 minutes I was supposed to put in per my training guide, but that was 4.40 miles. Kasey made to 4.5 miles, I just couldn't make another tenth. I hate stopping at odd distances, but today my bloated belly said stop. Then of course it rained on us on the way home. When it rain...it pours! I am still glad I got my run in though. I actually felt cold I was so wet! It has been a long time since I could say that.
So tonight I learned: only eat a little bit no matter how hungry you feel if you are going to run. I hope I remember this in the future.
And I have to share a picture of my birthday gift from Kasey. My new super cute running belt. I love it!
From Hippierunner- it's so cute
