I have not been feeling all that great this week. Monday started off bad. I didn't feel good, and I tried to sleep it off. I had an upset stomach all that day. I felt good Tuesday morning and had a great run and workout. When I got to work later that day, I had a headache, and it moved to my stomach that afternoon. Wednesday I almost went home from work, because my stomach hurt so much. I wasn't able to eat much all day. Then this morning, I got up and ran. I did not have enough energy from the lack of calories I had been eating. I got a little over a mile in and just ran out of gas. I was able to get the miles in through walking. I started boot camp and had to leave 15 minutes in.
I guess we all have days/weeks like these, but it is frustrating. I really felt like I was on a roll. Getting some great workouts and miles in, and now I am just feeling like garbage.
We got 4 miles in this morning. I started running with Bob, but like I said, I just ran out of gas. Pat stuck back with me. It was really nice running with him today. I have really enjoyed running with everyone so far. Pat has lost 80 lbs and has run a marathon. I really like how he told me, "I have received so much help from this group. I just want to give back." He told me that when I said I felt bad slowing him down on his run today. Everyone has a great story, and I love hearing them! I cannot wait to be the one hanging back with the person starting and telling them they can do it.
What do you do when you do not feel good? Do you still train or do you just take time off?
Who inspired you to run, and who is your greatest support now?
