Decided to do my R3 this morning, worst idea I could have had. 10.15am, beautiful sunshine & off I went. By the end of the first 3 min run I was hot sweaty & not feeling great.
Slowed to even slower than slow ready for the first 5 min run but only managed to run for 4 mins! Felt anxious, panicky & simply like I could not do it. I actually wanted to cry The sun was really hot & I just felt like I couldn't cope.
I also got my first stitch, that was not pleasant at all. Anyway I thought I might as well just give up & go home so on my second 3 min run I thought well I'll run it as normal but head straight home, I was feeling so disappointed in myself. The gremlin on my shoulder was laughing telling me I couldn't do it & need to re do W4 all over again. At this point I seriously felt rubbish & how I wasn't in tears I do not know. I was so hot, my face bright red & huffing & puffing like never before.
So the 3 mins was almost up & I thought no I'm not giving in. I turned left & carried on my normal route rather than turning right & going home. Ran the 5 mins with a stitch as it kicked back in & added an extra minute to make up for the min I lost on the first 5 mins.
Finally made it home but I felt sick, dizzy & was more out of breath than W1R1. Took me absolutely ages to come round & im really upset & disappointed with myself.
I think I definitely need to stick to my evening runs, a bit chillier & not as bright. I've never had the nausea after a run before & the stitch was a new one too but I did it even if it wasn't as I expected.
It's the first time I've actually been worried about having an 'episode' after a run & its knocked the stuffing out of me to be honest. I think I'd gotten a bit complacent by not taking my medical ID or heart monitor out with me. Think I'll get my Fiancé to run with me on Tuesday just to be on the safe side
