Adding insult to injury…

I didn’t run as planned yesterday. *Almighty Mega Sadfacing*!!!!

I tried my hardest to get myself organised to get out the door and drive to a flat area to run an Easy 5k.

Didn’t happen!

Around 3:30-4pm I started feeling a little tight in my chest, and a little drowsy.

I thought to myself – “A good run should sort me out”.  Yeah, I was wrong!

Around 4pm’ish I started getting all flustered and sweaty.  My body started clamming up and my head felt heavy.
I was battling dizzy spells and my increasingly difficult efforts to breathe.

I couldn’t be sick, I am not allowed to be sick, I need to run dammit!  I don’t have time for this Sh!t.

With my children fed and showered, it was just after 5pm and if I was to get my run in I had to leave soon.  Children were packed up ready to go, I had got into my Tech gear, struggling to get my socks over my clammy feet and tie shoe laces with shaky hands.  I tripped on the way to the front door and got a huge hot flush at the same time.  Chest tightening more.

I wasn’t going for a run that day.

And with that I put my children into bed, and myself as well.

I can’t remember the last time I felt that terrible!

Last minute appointment and visit with a Doc (not my usual – apparently he has Thursdays off, HOW FREEKING CONVENIENT!)  But got Dr Singh instead.

I told Dr Singh my happenings of yesterday, how I was sooo ready for a run but just couldn’t get there.  I was trying so hard to get there.

It also turns out that Dr Singh follows a diet similar to Paleo and RUNS! ha!

He recommended some 2XU compression socks for my enlarged calf (due to an extensive DVT years ago), prescribed some Antibiotics for a chest infection and sent me on my way!

So I am off running for a wee bit, If an injury isn’t keeping me from running, some kind of stupid sickness is!

Boo to it all!

I just want to Run!

Going Back to bed…

Shit At least I wasn’t hit by a deer…

Oh and Happy International Happiness Day!!!


  1. Crikey that poor runner hit by the deer was unlucky! At least here all I have to worry about are cars, motorbikes, muggers and wild dogs. Take care of your chest. I ran through a chest infection last year and ended up having to take a whole week off. Lesson learned!

    1. It was crazy, I googled “Sick Runner” images and that was what came up – A runner struck by a deer lol
      I couldn’t even make it out the door for a run if I tried. 😦
      But these days off are really starting to get to me!
      Hubby is home from work next week, so I am planning an epic Early Sunday morning run for next week 🙂
      Got to have something to look forward to lol

  2. Hey dare…Colonial Knob in 37 minutes, front then track…almost there, first time under 40…get well…Dad

    1. Taking it super easy, no other mode available for me today unfortunately. But I smell a long run coming, once I’m tip top I’ll be back out there 🙂
      Thanks for reading 🙂
