Runs Post Vertigo

Well, I have to say... my runs since my episode with a week of vertigo have been pretty much awful. I haven't been able to run more than 2 miles without walking. I can't breathe! It's like my chest is restricting, So I'm really hoping that my breathing is a lot better during the Half on Saturday. Or this race may truly be a fight to the finish.

I was hoping to PR this race. This was really my 'one' race of the year that I was trying to run it for speed. My other Half marathons are more training runs for the Marathon or fun runs with friends. So this was 'the' race that I was hoping to push the pace and see what I could do.

But it's ok. It's not the end of the world if this race doesn't turn out like I had expected or hoped. I do hope that I am completely well enough to run the race, and that I don't have to get pulled off of the course. I haven't had any more vertigo episodes since Saturday. I've had a couple of issues with being light headed, but nothing that I would really take note of. And each day is an improvement.

I'm looking forward to Saturday. This will be my 4th Half Marathon.

  1. Try to take it easy for the next couple of days, you would be in taper mode anyway. Feel better and remember - all of us runners totally understand needing to change plans. If you can't race it after all, there will be more races ahead. I know the emotions and it's hard to sort through them all. Hug!
