Training, Day 4

Uck. So, either i'm more of a wuss than I thought, or this Michael Pate guy knows what he's doing for couch potatoes like me...

Today's training was to Swim 100m and bike 2 miles. Swimming was hard, but I got through it w/o any major complaints. Then I got on the bike. 2 miles. I can do it. I got to about 1.6 miles and was dying... i had to stop for a few seconds. But I was close to the 2 miles, so i pushed through and did it in about the same time i did yesterday (10 min). Yesterday all we did was bike and today I had just swum* 100m plus, so i guess that's an improvement, right?

When we got back to the house I was thirsty so i drank a small glass of water, and then started to feel nauseous. Barry said my sugar was low, so i drank a few ounces of vanilla almond milk. I blaim barry - he kept talking about why i was nauseous... I ran to the bathroom and threw up everything... mostly water, but reminents of last night's yummy dinner too... not so yummy the second time. I got ready for work, but i still feel weak and queasy. Now it's 7:00, - all i have left to do is button my pants... and I sooo don't want to. Is this normal? We didn't even workout an hour! WTF? I've gone 2-3 hours of hard martial arts workouts and not felt this bad. I've gone 14 hours of guard practice and not felt like this...

Oh well, as I always say... "This too shall pass."

*Did I use that right?

Aw, sorry Mandi! Maybe it's not exercise induced...maybe you just have that icky stomach bug that everyone's been getting.

On the other hand, I woke up feeling not so hot, either. Maybe our bodies are rebelling from changing diets and being forced to exercise...?

Hope you feel better!

It is "swam", FYI. :) Sorry the workout is kicking your butt. You will be glad you stuck it out when this passes and you feel great after working out. Keep it up!

I think it's FAB that your training to do a triathalon! I start my training next month for the Gate River Run! I've done the 5k for the past few years, and think I am ready to try and tackle the 15k! You should do it too! It's in March, and with all your tri training, it should be a breeze!
