Since Sunday I've had terrible stomach cramps - like someone kicked me in the diaphragm (hold on... this reminds me)
During the race on Sunday I'm swimming a pathetic pace and this guy who is swimming a nearly pathetic pace decided to swim into me, he moves off and then comes at me again and after a second, he decides to just swim over top of me. I've never been annoyed by the occasional thump but that was it, I stopped turned sideways and put my foot into his ribs - I passed him and never saw him again. I thought Kelly would approve of something like that.
I have been dealing with fits of nausea and even laid in bed Sunday night wondering if I went to work and had to throw up during the company meeting - would I make it to the restroom or should I just sit next to the trash?
This might explain why my HR hit 200 on the run and went way north of that with very little effort. It was 176 avg for the race even though I sandbagged the run.
