Being on the west side I post so late compared to ya'll, I thought I'd beat you to it by posting <b>before</b> I run today. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
It is raining kittens and puppies today, so even though it is a track day, the track will be muddy. I plan to run the loop through the park instead; 7 miles.<br>
Have a great day all!

About 4 miles for my lunchtime run. It was nice to be outside.<br><br>
I planned a loop, but construction got in the way, so I explored a new road, and then turned back after a bit.

1 Hr moderate TM this morning. The post race soreness is finally on its way out.<br><br>
Hope to get another hour in this evening, maybe throw in a few hill intervals.

Hi everyone.<br><br>
Sorry I missed yesterday. I was supposed to do 5 miles yesterday, but it didn't happen. You need an excuse? Okay:<br><br>
Over the weekend I got a bit of a cold. I didn't think much of it. In fact on Sunday I ran 5 miles (it was supposed to be 10, but I wasn't feeling great). So, Monday morning I get up for work. While putting in my contacts, I collapsed and spent 1/2 an hour on the bathroom floor. When I came around, I went back to my room and was still dizzy and confused. I spent all day Monday in bed.<br><br>
I was extremely fortunate. When I collapsed, I fell forward and hit my jaw on the medicine cabinet. Luckily, I missed the mirror in the medicine cabinet. After that, I tried to stand back up, and collapsed onto the floor on my right side. I missed the toilet in my fall, and the top of my head was right up against the side of the bathtub. If I'd been a couple inches taller, or if I had been standing in a different place, the outcome might not have been so good.<br><br>
I do feel better today, but not good enough to run. So nothing today. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

eq, that's pretty scary. I'm glad you didn't get hurt.<br><br>
Make sure you rest enough, and don't rush back into training if you are still feeling weak.

EQ,<br><br>
I'd encourage you to see an MD. Fainting spells are nothing that you should be ignoring.

5 so-called "easy" miles after work. It might be another day or so before anything feels easy.<br><br>
I taught pilates today, too.<br><br>
EQ, please keep an eye on that. That's scary stuff.

Fainting? I have had a few close calls when standing up quickly after being sitting down or crouching, as in looking at magazines on the bottom rack. Hope that'sall it is Eq.<br><br>
For me today...4.4 miles including 3 at 8:57 pace. Was supposed to be threshold pace but it felt much faster than that and my HR went higher than it should have. I think that outdoor hill run on Sunday is still affecting my recovery.<br><br>
Tonight I will try for an easy 5k while watching the news.

6 miles out in the snow. It was a great run. I still hurt.<br><br>
EQ, hope you are better. That is scary. Do you live alone, can't imagine no one heard you hit the floor?? Rest and feel better!

Thank you all.<br><br>
I want to assure all of you that I am fine. The only remnants from the incident are a bit of a sore jaw and a skinned up left knee (the knee hit the vanity on my way to the floor).<br><br>
I am hoping that this was an isolated incident, but will keep an eye on it. It's been a long time since I blacked out like that (gotta be 10 years anyway), so right now I'm going to keep an eye on it, and should it re-occur I will see a doctor.<br><br><b>movingon</b> in answer to your question, no I don't live alone. My parents were sleeping in their room. However, their bedroom door was closed and the bathroom door was closed. They didn't hear a thing.

Morning Run:<br><br>
7.9 miles in 60 degree temps with 100% humidity (and it wasn't raining). Total running time was 1:12:19 for an average pace of 9:10. I did take 2 water breaks for a total of 3 minutes but I don't have that average calculated today.<br><br><br>
Lunch time run:<br><br>
7.46 miles at lunch and it was in the 70's I think. The humidity did drop though. Total time was 1:05:02 for a pace of 8:43. 1 minute water break included in that time.

EQ, that's very scary, and you should get yourself over to the doctor regardless. Maybe it's nothing again, and you'll just have an annual check-up. But they'll probably want to rule out a few things.<br><br>
From your post it sounds like you hadn't exerted yourself just before. Unless you ate a VERY high carb breakfast and have blood sugar issues, recovering from a cold isn't usually enough to cause the fainting. And trust me, I'm a fainting expert (at least 20 times; very infrequent now that my blood sugar is under control). Like you, I've passed out in the bathroom and done major (temporary) facial damage. Fainting in the kitchen and hitting my head on the counter was also bad. And fainting in my husband's plane over the Caribbean was the worst.<br><br>
As for me, 6.5 kick-ass hours of skiing on Blackcomb mountain, mostly in the Blackcomb Glacier and surrounding areas. MAN is that a fun mountain! And to get to the glacier, this also included hiking uphill carrying skis and poles.

I did a track workout Tuesday after work.<br>
2x1600 - 7:07, 7:09<br>
4x400 - 1:36, 1:39, 1:37, 1:39<br><br>
My total workout was 7 miles. I feel pretty good about my 1600s. My 400s felt a little slow, and I think they were a little slower compared to past ones. But I haven't done them in a while and the wind was blowin' like a mofo, so I blame the "slowness" on that!
