Registered for the race and being dumb

Monday, May 23, 2016


I finally got entered into the race for the weekend, I was worried that we had missed it but they finally got the site working again so on Sunday I'll do my first 10K. I laughed at my husband afterwards, I picked a race that doesn't give out t-shirts or medals to do my first 10K. Grrr...at least I'll have my bib to put up.

Since I didn't do any running while we were on vacation I decided to get back into the swing of things after the Farmers Market on Saturday. I was tired and knew it would perk me up if I hit the trails. Sure I had a bit of a headache but I didn't think much of that. That would be the dumb part.

Less than 1K into the race my head started to pound. By the time I hit 1.5K it was throbbing and flashing lights told me that it was a migraine, not just a headache. I felt bad for the person I asked to come running with me because at the 2K mark I had to stop running and slow to a walk. When I got home I walked in, announced to my husband I had a migraine. He offered to go put fresh sheets on the bed so I could have a nap, I was sound asleep on the couch before he could finish. I slept for 3 hours. Running with a migraine, dumb, so incredibly dumb.

My head is just starting to clear today and as much as I want to run I have a feeling it would still be a bad idea so I'll try the treadmill instead and see if I can get a short run in on that. Funny, I wasn't the least bit nervous about the race before I went on vacation, I was doing 7K trail runs. But that run with my friend set me off a bit, something was said and I know it wasn't meant to be hurtful but she has a way of saying things that are demotivating but she doesn't realize it. Not everyone is a cheerleader, even the nicest of people.

And then there's this which makes everything just so much better.

    OMG the girls look so cute!

    Yeah... headaches can quickly turn into pounding migraines when your heart rate goes up. Whenever I have a headache, I try to keep to a walk if I go out. Sorry you were dealing with that, those suck!

    I have totally thought I just had a headache only to find out too many miles in that is was a migraine in disguise. It takes all your effort just to make it back home. Good luck on your 10K!

    That is true, not everyone is a motivator - so shake off her comments. You missed two weeks but did a lot of walking. You will be fine! You have this! I for one am not worried and the twins are adorable!! Hope your head is better!

    Migraines are terrible. I am really enjoying all of the outdoor miles I am getting right now, but the heat is coming and running outside will GIVE me a migraine in the heat and humidity. I am enjoying it while I can.

    You know you can handle a 10k. Don't worry about what you friend said - especially if you know that's how she is. You've got this!

    Migraines stink. They make me not want to deal with anything or anyone. But those babies? I would make an exception. SO CUTE.
