The other week I was supposed to run mile repeats: 4 at an 8:54 pace, with a warm up and cool down mile on either end. I decided to try the treadmill since many commenters have told me that was where I could control the pace and it would be FLAT.
I knew that particular pace would be a long shot and I wound up in a loop of speeding up, then slowing down every time I started to feel a little green around the gills.
And watching TV while running didn't help. Already moving picture +bouncing up and down = more nauseous.
I was pretty sure I was looking like a bit of a hot mess, based on the looks I got from passers by.
Once I was done, I hopped off the mill and wiped my face with a paper towel ('cause I'm classy like that) and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror.
Even after my cool down, I continued to feel sweaty. Really sweaty.
I drove home with the windows down and still felt sweaty.
I still felt sweaty when I flopped down in front of the TV.
I hopped in the shower.
I finally was starting to feel normal. I got dressed.
And then I started to feel sweaty again.
It took a good hour to feel normal again. And for the record, it was not hot outside. It was cold and raining.
What month was it, you ask? Why, this month, of course. And around here, we have a special name for it:
Yup. It totally sucks donkeys.
