This run goes into the "I'd rather lay on the side of the road and die" category. Ughhhh.....
Hubby was running Ragnar and so I was at the mercy of a babysitter this morning. 7:00am is really early for a babysitter on a Saturday morning (whereas I would like to be finishing around that time).
We had guys working on our basement until 11:30pm. Loud aircompressors, nail guns, singing....I didn't sleep very well. My head cold is now full blown....ughhhhh
I started running and felt ok. But the I started to climb the rec center street and my breathing became out of control. I started to get really really really dizzy. I happen to see a guy from my ward running and I almost turned around to catch him and see if he had a phone. But Tim was gone and I wasn't sure who else I could call.
I thought I would make it to the turn around point and take my GU. I laid on the side of the street and watched the clouds swirling. I was probably there for 7 minutes or so. I was hoping the GU would kick in. I started walking and was finally able to start to run. Though I had my fuel belt and was consistently drinking, I stopped sweating. It was so hot. I had to stop and walk every couple of minutes.
I was really hoping I would see someone I knew driving by and they could give me a ride home.
When I got home, I laid on the floor under the ceiling fan. It took me a long while to stop seeing stars. YUCK...I hope I never had a run like that for a LONG LONG LONG time.
I made a batch of breakfast burritos. Each of my kids filled up their backpacks with breakfast and gatoraide. We went on a hike up Grove Creek. I was a bit nervous doing it alone (sometimes we have a few belly-achers and have to divide and conquer). But this morning was about the kids and having fun. We stopped after 400 ft and ate our burritos. We found little trails and explored. We threw rocks in the stream and discovered lots of "ruins". It was great morning.
Now I just need to get over this dumb cold.
