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.
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!!!
