Pile On The Miles and A Nauseous Run

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday/Almost Thanksgiving to everyone 🙂

Just a half day at work separates me from Thanksgiving and a ton of family, food and fun.  My three favorite F’s :).

In the spirit of keeping the streak alive, and fitting in all the healthy I can before the holiday, I crawled out of bed this morning for a quick 4 miler

Workout Of The Day: 4 miles on the treadmill

Nothing unique about the run itself.  I woke up feeling a bit nauseous but thought I could tough it thought a short run.  Welp, unfortunately the run left me feeling a wee bit worse for ware…resulting in some not fun activities post run.

Because it’s only a half day, I figured I’d tough it out at work and hope that some serious hydration and food will reset my weird-o body.  I don’t have time to be sick, dang it!

Pile On The Miles Update

With keepin’ the streak alive, I got knocked myself up to 96.5 miles, just 3.5 miles away from my goal.  This has been SUCH a great challenge for me, forcing me to keep on my feet, and challenging my legs in a new way.  Let me tell you, training and long distance running is challenging, but the beginning of this streak was exhausting in a different way as well.  At this point, my legs have become pretty accustomed to the distance and are feeling OK, but my brain is exhausted.  They say running is 90% mental, 10% physical, right?

Alright friends, time for me to get through this day! I’ll definitely try and report back before heading to North Carolina!

Question of the Morning: Working out when not feeling hot…what are your thoughts?

  1. Not a HUGE fan of working out when you’re not feeling great…but sometimes it can make you feel better. I guess it depends on what kind of feeling ‘meh.’ Usually when I have a headache, exercising makes it go away, but not the case with stomach stuff. Did a leg workout yesterday feeling weird tummy and then decided to sit it out for elliptical. No bouncing around for me! Hope you feel better

  2. My rule of thumb is to work out unless I’m down for the count. If I feel a lot worse, time to pack it up and go rest. Most of the time, I end up feeling better. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving!! It’s going to rain like crazy here in NC!

  3. Good job. I have a nauseous 3 miler quickie yesterday. I sick to my stomach when I have not ate/drank enough the night before. I have a feeling that’s what happened to you 🙂

  4. I can relate. I wasn’t feeling great this morning either. I think I felt more tired than anything, I could barely keep my eyes open when I was looking through my twitter feed (a typical morning routine when preparing to get out of bed!) Anyways, I actually decided to sleep in. When I woke up around 7, I was somewhat frustrated with the fact but I decided that my body must’ve needed the extra sleep and I plan to cycle and do a workout video this afternoon instead! Props to you for getting up and sticking with your routine. It really is best to get it done in the morning! My motivation definitely fades as the day progresses!

  5. I always applaud people who do treadmill runs. I find them so torturous but a good mental challenge. I hope you are feeling better! I always opt to take a rest day when feeling blah but I have various health things to worry about in the process. Stay strong and keep those miles coming!

  6. Oh no! I hope you feel better. If it’s stomach related I usually skip. Colds as long as I can breathe are fine for workouts, unless my head is pounding. Good job on all those miles and have an awesome Thanksgiving!!! 🙂

  7. Bummer that you didn’t feel better. I ran through my second pregnancy completely nauseous (wow, it’s been a long time since I wrote and said that word out loud!)….the running was great but feeling nauseous constantly was terrible.
