Man. That was so horrible.
Even though it was a run day, I didn't think I would actually get a chance. Everything has been so crazy lately and even now as I type this, I have many other things that I should be doing running through my head.
But my mom was sick and I came home early to take care of the kids and thought - Hey! Perfect! I can go the Y!
Except! I hadn't been drinking water all day. I had 2 big cups of coffee and only a little water. And I had taken the krill oil again this morning and felt like I had a spike at the base of my throat (bad heartburn). But I went thinking those things wouldn't matter.
They mattered. I had no energy. I got up on the track, walked my 4 laps, did some dynamic stretching and started running. It felt horrible. Almost immediately my shoe came untied so I stopped, re-tied both and walked 2 more laps. Started running again. So slow, didn't feel comfortable, couldn't get breath regulated, couldn't swallow properly with spike at bottom of throat. I ran half a mile, stopped to drink water and never started again. I was so upset with myself and was so upset that it felt like I couldn't do it, I just left.
Trying now to let it upset me too much, but I feel miserable.
