Hmmmm....this didn’t go so well. I felt like I was coming down with a cold all week. Lots of water and LOTS of sleep.
Pre run: bagel.
I met Karen and Leslie and warmed up with them for 3 miles. I felt like I was working hard during the warmup. Left the ladies.
Ran the first 3k. It was a little too hard, but got through it.
Took a gel right before #2. Not quite as hard.
Started #3. Started seeing stars 1 mile into it. I stopped for 10-15 seconds and took a drink. I still didn’t feel right. I just ran and didn’t even look at my watch. My heart was beating so fast.
Started to cool down. Still breathing SO hard and heart beating so fast. Almost felt dizzy. I missed the turn to get back to my car and then freaked out because I was 2-3 miles from my car. I knew I didn’t have enough in me to get to back to it. Thankfully, my husband was leaving for lunch and I was by his office. He kept saying, “you don’t look very good. You REALLY don’t look very good.”
So I’m not sure if it was a nutrition bonk, but that last 3k/cooldown was crazy.
