So the strangest thing happened to me this morning.
I woke up just like any other Saturday morning and headed to the gym. Most of my half-marathon training has been steady runs at one constant pace to work up my mileage and endurance. However, this morning I felt like switching things up a bit so I threw in a few intervals to keep boredom at bay.
You can probably see I had a little fun with PicMonkey graphics this morning!
As my treadmill workout was nearing an end, I started feeling a bit dizzy so I slowed my pace from a run to a walk to gain my composure. My vision gradually blurred and ‘stars’ appeared in my peripheral view.
I instantly panicked and came to a stop. I walked over to the area where all the mats are and sat down before I hurt myself or fell over. It was at this point that I felt a slight headache and realized how tight the headband was around my head so I removed it. I sat there in a daze for a few minutes and slowly came back to reality.
I have no idea what really caused me to get so lightheaded but ever since, I just haven’t been feeling my usual self. I have a dull headache in the back of my head, as well as a pain in my neck which feels like I slept on it wrong. My only guess is the combination of my super tight headband and a strain from sleeping in an odd way but man, I hope this goes away!
Speaking of pains in my neck, this little guy has been very needy alllllllll morning.
I think we’ve set a new record for number of bathroom breaks before noon. Gotta love him!
In between our numerous walks, I prepared a big bowl of eggs for breakfast.
Three scrambled eggs with smoked turkey sausage, avocado and salsa.
Totally hit the spot!
Now I’m off to get a few things done (i.e. homework, cleaning, showering) before I head to a wedding this afternoon. I’m hoping my neck feels better!
Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!
