Friday night I managed to get in my 1400 yd. swim and a 40 minute easy run on the treadmill in the time I had between leaving work and our holiday party. I could feel it taking everything out of me, but I made it through.
I went to the party and got home by 11. Then proceeded the spend the next hour trying to find the key fob for my car. Yep. I lost it. Inside the car. Therefore, I couldn't lock the doors. As long as th fob is in the car, it can be started and driven off without an actual key in the ignition! I had to find the fob. I wound up having to wake up Darren to help me. Thankfully it wasn't easily found, but he was successful.
I was all ready to go to the RunGirl course for my 2:15 run, until I found out Darren had to go into work. No biggie, I would just get my run in later. This was fine with me because I still wasn't feeling all that great. In fact I felt like I was nursing a hangover, without having drank.
The day went on and I felt worse and worse. I desperately needed a nap, which I took. We took Cassie to see "Tangled" and it was all I could do not to fall asleep. We got home and I knew from how I felt there would be no run, which was sorta okay since I had a couple hours early the next morning in which I could do it, before I had to be at defensive driving for the day.
I woke on Sunday and my head was full of congestion and horrible pressure behind one eye. I pressed on though, knowing running generally clears the snot from my head. I headed out and got started. The pressure behind my eye was ridiculous. I found even my visor was too tight to wear with the pressure so already decided on 2 5-mile loops so I could swing by the house and drop off the visor, since I couldn't wear it.
I got about a mile in, and my stomach just turned. I slowed down a minute to make sure I was okay and started back up again... 30 seconds later... BARF! Ugh... makes me want to gag again typing it.
That was it. I went home. I called it a day. I'm not sure what this crud is, but it's killing me. I had nothing the rest of the day and just felt like I was living with a hangover. I made it through defensive driving, only napping a few times. :) Still feeling like crap, I never got my run in.
I just need to get better. Run Girl is in 5 days. :(
