I woke up yesterday planning to do a speedwork workout that I was looking forward to - key workout in preparation for Broad Street! As soon as I got up, I could tell I was not feeling well: sweaty, my heart was beating fast, my stomach was in disarray. I got on the treadmill to run and it was like a pregnant run. I had to stop, sit down and take a break. I was lightheaded and overall just not feeling well. Not what I was hoping for the day of a workout I was looking forward to. I ended up doing just over 3 miles and calling it quits. I slugged through it but thought maybe I could finish later if I was feeling better. All day was weird - my stomach hurt, no appetite, I was sweating and out of breath after walking up the steps, felt lightheaded (probably because of the lack of food) and was tired. I spent the morning laying in bed with Nick watching Thomas next to me while Kara was napping. We skipped our usual Gymboree class; I couldn't imagine getting both kids in and out of the car.
My friend Lauren brought over some crockpot leftovers for dinner and it really broke up the day - Nick and her daughter Olivia are the same age and were having a blast together. It was so nice to have dinner made and I didn't have to worry about it! In the afternoon I took a nap while the kids were napping. I felt better when I woke up but ended up just laying around curled up in a ball. Looking at food made me want to gag. I don't know if I ate something weird or what, my today still my stomach is in disarray. I slept last night from 9-7am. This is really bad timing and I want to get in my speedwork - 2 key sessions this week and next week to see if I am on track to reach my goal time in 3+ weeks! For now I am resting. I have the tri on Sunday and I feel unprepared but mildly excited. Mildly - I want to see what my swim time is and my run time after the swim and bike.
Hopefully by tomorrow I'll be back on my feet and by Friday I can do the speedwork.
