Today was awful. I was struggling before the sun came up and then, by mile 8, I was nauseous. My friend Lindsey was with me and we walked ran into the next aid station. To do 20, I needed to keep on and do a loop from White Rock to Great Northern to Foster and back down Shoal Creek. I was feeling worse, not better, so we decided to turn around there, which would make the run about 17 miles. I walked/ran as I could. My stomach got worse; I was to the point of wondering if I should make myself vomit to feel better. We got to Lake Austin, just about 3 miles from the finish, and I started to have GI issues and really feel yucky. I sent Lindsey on her way, stopped in at the 7-11 for a Coke slushie in the hopes that cold and sugary would help, and basically walked it in from there. Miserable.
Talked to Coach Michael when I got in and he said to take tomorrow off and perhaps Monday, depending on how I feel.
I got in the car and cried.
I feel like crap.
