Running with cramps

So I bet most of you know where I am going with this... Yesterday Wendy and I had a 12 miler planned.  It was chilly outside (40*) and REALLY windy.  20 mph to be exact.  Anyway as soon as we started running I felt like I was going to vomit.  At first I thought I could push through it but it just wasn't happening and I started feeling lightheaded from the pain.  She was a good sport about it and we ended with 7.3 miles.  I felt bad stopping but I felt so much better once I stopped.  Here is our "before" shot:

We did not take an "after" shot, which is a good thing because I think I probably looked like death. 

Tonight I went to the gym and ran the rest of the "12 miler" on the treadmill.  I am glad that I got the miles in.  It felt good!

This is going to be a busy week for me.  I am moving on Thursday and I still have a lot to do before then.  Tomorrow after work I am getting my hair cut and colored so I won't be home until probably 7:00.  I am hoping to get in at least two more good runs in this week before our half marathon on Sunday!

When was the last time you moved?  I moved a year ago.  I am hoping to stay in my new apartment for a while.  I dislike moving!



  1. Best of luck with the moving - hope it goes smoothly, that is never much fun and I'm always exhausted afterwards!

  2. It has been a long time since I've moved...but we are having carpet installed tomorrow, so we have to move everything out of our upstairs which is kind of like moving! Ugh!

  3. Ugh, sorry you weren't feeling great on your run. The wind around here lately sucks. All the best with your move. It's been 12 years since we've moved and I'm fine with that! Ha!

  4. I hate when that happens, you go out for a good run and end up miserable! Terrible!
    Good luck with the move! I was so excited to get into my house because I used to move every year lol I have currently been in my house for 2 years and going!
