Well, I really had a bad running week. I think I can chalk it up to a hideous work schedule. I mean what were they thinking.
I worked Fri sat sun nights (12 hours), then off on monday, then again on Tuesday and Wednesday night, then off on Thursday and scheduled again for Friday. On Friday, I awoke feeling lousy. gee I wonder why.
Anyway I ran on Tuesday my 6 miler which was ok except for the mini mental breakdown. Then I tried to run again on Thursday, and made it 2.6 miles or so. I was just so tired from work.
Friday I wanted to run, but trainer talked me out of it, given that I had spinned on the bike for 30 min, had a swimming appointment and had done an hour of upper bod. And I was struggling in the workout. I felt dizzy and nauseous. Afterwards I decided I must be having some sort of sinus problems, and called in sick to work. Frankly, I was Overscheduled without my permission, so I sort of figured the manager got what she deserved for giving my such a horrible schedule.
So this morning I work up and walked the dog. I felt terrible, but walked him for one hour. I then decided my head wasn't getting any better. Still Nauseous, I realized suddenly that this was actually a Migraine. I get Migraines, but It's really been a long time since I had one. I'm famous for not recognizing them. Several years ago I ended up in the Emergency Dept for a Migraine I was sure was food poisioning. The docs were amused. So I took a hot bath, some aspirin, benadryl and went on to sleep again.
Finally around 1pm, i woke up and felt a little better. Due to the insane work schedule my Miles have been low this week, so I decided to get the miles in despite feeling ill.
First two miles were OK, but after that it all sort of went down hill. I still felt bad, and my left leg was giving me more trouble, I could breathe well enough, but I was miserable.
Here's hoping for a better week starting on Sunday.
THis type of week is one that makes me wonder why on earth I run anyway!!!
7 days until the Canyonlands lottery closes….11 days until I will know for sure anything.
