Yesterday was super busy, I had about 1736478 things on my to do list, but first, I had 8 hours of cardiology class. The class was really interesting, it taught me A LOT about the heart kids we take care of, but it also made me aware of how much I still have to learn!
Midway, some of the people I work with and I grabbed lunch from Zoë’s Kitchen. I got the new quinoa salad and added grilled chicken. Oh. My. Gosh. It was so good. Try it, you’ll thank me.
I rushed to run some errands afterwards before heading to NoDa run club with one of my favorite running buddies, Serena.
(You can tell it’s an old picture because it’s March not summer and we wish we were this tan)
It was absolutely perfect running weather. And then I ruined the run. After we started, we were chatting for a bit then I started seeing spots a little bit, but I thought I could push through and would hit my groove and feel fine. Serena looked at me and asked if I felt okay because she said I looked clammy. I said I was fine and kept running, but my vision was blurry around the edges and I felt like I was on the verge of blacking out. So, finally we stopped and tried walking, but then I felt super nauseous. I thought I was going to throw up, so we decided to head back to the car. And then, when I thought I was in the clear, I puked. Great story, right? I’m pretty sure it was just the combination of exhaustion (I had just worked a bunch of days in a row), I hadn’t eaten in about 7 hours, and maybe a touch of dehydration. Fail.
We headed back to my sisters after the run for dinner- she and her roommate were grilling for her roomie’s bday. I didn’t feel like eating, but they made a feast of brats, Brussels and broccoli, and Thai coleslaw.
This is Julie’s plate- she may have a slight affinity for condiments. Dinner was topped of with the best ever dessert, King of Pops Popsicles!
I’m still not feeling 100%, still a little nauseous/headache-y/indigestion-y. I’m really hoping it’s just the exhaustion, I have MAJOR plans for this weekend!
Has this ever happened to you? What did you go? Popsicles or ice cream?
