Sunset Series fun run at Princes Park last night – definitely bad. The first lap went well, I did great times then the second lap. Just after the midway point, I started feeling sick, then sicker and sicker. I had to stop running and walk. My friend, Simon, stayed with me even though I kept telling him he didn’t have to which wasn’t so much him being nice as being slack. Around the 6 km mark, an old man passed us so I ran to get ahead then felt sicker and walked. The old man passed us again – he was really, really old – so we ran then walked. Finally I let the old man get ahead. I walked, very slowly to the finish but once that finish line can into sight I had to do a sprint.
Afterwards I felt like I wanted to either vomit or pass out. Still managed to eat my post-run sausage though. It took forever to walk the km back to the car, I even needed a rest stop halfway. Am still feeling queasy today. Not good at all.
But this is good – I wrote an article for Women’s Health and Fitness magazine and my copy turned up today. Check it out if you get a chance – I interviewed a few bloggers for it 🙂 Woohoo!
