Monday: Strength work out. Had planned on running 5 easy miles but when I woke up, this just wasn't meant to be. The dew point was at 76, which I have never seen. It felt disgusting outside and the thought of 5 on the mill just wasn't pleasing. Plus, Andrew and i had both fallen asleep around 7 pm the night before and both woke up at 4:30 am ready to go. I normally don't do strength first thing in the morning but we were both up and I was feeling like doing something. I do like doing a strength training work out after a long run as it it kind of a forced stretch:)
Tuesday: Let me back up and finish Monday. After dropping a warmish and whiny toddler off at daycare (in my defense i had taken his temp numerous times and he was below normal every time), I headed in to work only to be called a few hours later to come and pick him up. While he ate and acted fine after he got home, I do know something was off and he was not feeling good. Then fast forward to later in the day when I started feeling bad. I was super nauseous, had a headache that wouldn't go away, and felt like i had horrible indigestion. I finally threw up and had to lay down for a while to recuperate. I had visions of waking up Tuesday morning and feeling 100% better, and that just didn't happen. While I got a good night's sleep, I never was able to stomach anything for dinner, and couldn't eat anything for breakfast either. I decided to go ahead and go back to bed after feeding the dogs and taking this day as a rest day knowing that i could do strength on Friday after back to back days of running Wednesday an Thursday.
