The run of death

Yesterday was a pretty good day, except the part where I thought I was going to die during my run.  I did Week5 Day1 of C25k and HOLY CATS ON A CRACKER it liked to have killed me.  It didn’t help that it was 80 degrees outside, or that I had just come from the dentist where I accidentally swallowed some of that numbing agent they give you before they insert that 12 foot long needle into your gum and out your ear drum.  So my throat was numb and my stomach was starting to rebel against the nastiness it was forced to endure and seriously, for the last half of my run I thought I was going to hurl.  But I did the whole dang run and now I’m dreading Day 2 which will be my last run before the race on Saturday.  Any pre-race prep advice for me? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?


Food Summary:  I did alright yesterday. Big salad and small sandwich for lunch, with an orange for dessert.  I wasn’t hungry after my run, so I didnt snack much before dinner (okay I had a few animal crackers but that was it).  I felt good about my choices yesterday.

Exercise Summary:  Ran W5D2, which shall now be known as the Run of Death.

The Results:  Down 1 pound to 162.  Felt good about yesterday.

I also realized yesterday thanks to that I am due for my Lady Time in a few days, which I hope explains some of the weight gain.  Focus for today is water!  I don’t think I’ve been getting quite enough in the last few days.

Have a good Hump Day! 🙂

  1. You have a race on Saturday? Cool! Best of luck to you! I think the only advice I have is to get plenty of hydration in the days before the race. At least most races are early in the day before it gets too overwhelmingly hot.
