Last Friday I woke up in the middle of the night and threw up. I went back to sleep. I woke up an hour later and threw up again, this time it was violent. I was shaking, sweating, and pure white. I woke up my husband and told him to take me to the hospital because this was the worst throwing up I have ever had. He calmly said to wait and see what happens in a couple hours while rubbing my back while I'm puking in the toilet (I have a winner, friends.. seriously.) So anyways, fast forward a few hours later, I'm still puking. It was terrible.
All day Saturday I felt sick to my stomach and didn't do much of anything. Except I did get to see my brother, the one I ran the marathon with! It was a special time. After that I slept and slept some more.
Sunday rolls around and my stomach is in pain. Like weird pain. A pain I have never felt. I lay down all day with a heating pad on my belly. So I didn't know whether or not I could run today.
I got up and felt pretty good and decided to set out for an easy 3 mile run. It was going pretty well and I decided not to pay attention to my watch at all. I figured I just took three days off, and was pretty sick. Whatever pace I'm going is good enough. I got to 3 miles and felt good so I decided to make it to 4! I was so excited!! And my pace was all right, too. Not too bad for my first run after sickness :)
Now for a day of shopping and maybe a haircut with my momma!
How long do you wait to run after you are sick?
How was your run today?
