We had a cold front moved in this week.
Couple that with a 2 year old who inexplicably would not fall asleep until well after midnight most nights, and I was pretty much ready to just spend the week curled up in bed.
But I needed to run, so I braved the 50 degree weather and ran Wednesday and Friday night.
As expected, my pace was WAY slow. On Wednesday I just didn’t feel good. I spent the first half of the workout trying not to have a gagging fit.
Then just past the halfway point it happened. I tossed my cookies
Except I didn’t have any cookies to toss, so I just lost the water I had been drinking and some gastric juices. I can never decide on the scale of vomit if that is worse or better than a stomach full of food.
But once that happened I felt better and was able to pick up my pace a little bit for the rest of the run.
Friday’s run went a little better. I was still running slower than I wanted to because it was cold, which is hard on my lungs, but I didn’t have any gagging fits. However I found myself feeling really winded halfway through my workout which made for slow going for the second half of the run. Also, my ears were hurting by the end of the workout, so I think I’ll be picking up an ear-warmer headband because cold ears are a miserable feeling.
AMIL arrived on Thursday, so Hubby and I are running without EJ now. Which is kind of weird, but I’m sure I’ll get used to it.
