8 mile run, all night sickness and a giveaway coming soon

Saturday I headed out around 8:30 for my 8 mile run. I had run 6 miles the previous week, but had to bump it up to 8 for this weekend. It felt great outside, not to cold and not to hot, so I turned on my Garmin and headed out. By about mile 4, I started getting hot, so I took off my long sleeve shirt and tied it around my waist and kept going. I was bound and determined to do 5 miles for sure without stopping and I did that! It just so happen that on this day I had a ton of people texting me, calling me and trying to get in touch with me. Isn't that how it always is whenever you run your long runs. I stopped at one point and talked to my sister-in-law Karen for a little bit and then started back out. I am very different with GU, so after I finished 5 miles, which was around an hour, I took some of my GU chomps and some water and headed back out for 3 more miles. I finished my 8 mile run and it felt great. I did my 6 mile split faster than I had previously, so I was kind of excited about it.

I always think about how it is not fun to run by yourself, but sometimes I like running alone. I feel as though sometimes I get dragged down by other people, but I have trained for so long now by myself that I am starting to get used to it. I run occasionaly with my husband, but he is usually working. I use that time that I run alone to figure things out and think. Granted that is hard to do for 13.1 miles, but it is possible. haha
Heading out for my run early in the morning. Gotta love new running gear.

Last night however, was not fun. I ended up throwing up most of the night I think from what I ate at Logans Roadhouse. I had some chicken fried steak and I was fine all day Sunday and ate just fine and then Sun. night it hit me. I was up every 2 hours or so because my stomach was killing me. My friend asked me today if I was going to go run, and I told her she was crazy. I am not running for a few days, because I am so lite headed right now. Hopefully I feel better real soon. I hate being sick, and espcially when I am throwing up.

I am going to be doing a Bic Bands giveaway soon, so stay tuned for that. I will be giving away, not one, but two Bic bands that you can customize if you wish. This will happen in the next week or two so stay tuned for that! 

What do you do whenever you at sick?
