Today was the big day that New York Road Runners would announce the lottery “winners” for the NYC Half Marathon. I’ve been checking my email all day… nothing. But when I just checked my bank account, they’ve taken the money out for the registration, which they said they would do if you make the lottery. So…. I’m in!!!!!!!!! I’ll be running 13.1 miles through the streets of New York City on March 21st, just 2 weeks after the Disney Princess Half. I know this probably isn’t enough time to recover, but I’m at least going to try. I’m so excited!
So after posting the “Feeling Beaten Down” post, I knew exactly what was coming next. I woke up this morning throwing up and had to call off work. Blah! Then I started getting massive leg cramps. I just couldn’t get enough liquid in to rehydrate myself. But good news is I’m feeling a lot better now. I’m still weak and crampy, but I’m not getting sick anymore. But I found one of the worst things about being single… no one is here to go to the store for things you need/want. I just had to truck myself out to Wawa in my jammies for some food.
I really need to take a step back and really take a rest day between each run. And I need to rehydrate a little better after hot yoga. This whole thing is a learning process, and I have to trust myself that I’ll figure this all out.
