You naughty girl–see the word BONK, and this is a gynecology site–get your mind out of the gutter! A friend told me that I BONKED! What the heck? Gotta read about this now!
I finally, I think, hit my first BONK. TOTAL. UTTER. EXHAUSTION.
I have a 10K run this coming weekend, and tried three times to get a 10K in over the last weekend, but was called back to work urgently while I was running, and had less than 2 K in.
Yesterday, there were no deliveries–nobody in labor —- BLISS!!
I started the day with 55 minutes of weights in the gym at 5:30, then I swam laps for 55 mins. I ate a decent breakfast–working in the protein–about 450 calories. Finished my clinic early–so I thought I’ll go for a run. I ate a lunch of tuna and bread and plain yogurt(higher in protein than the delicious vanilla yogurt–and less sugar than the delicious vanilla yogurt), with fruit–and at 3:30–headed to the park to run.
I started off, and my first km was under 5:28 mins, so now I am thinking, “Could I break the 1 hour mark for 10K”.
I did 55 mins 15 secs.
Race home to change (drank water in the car)–ABs class is at 5:30–just made it — quick drink of water. Do the abs class, with the end being a three minute plank—hmmmpp I did 1:30 rested for 30 then 1 minute–my arms shaking more than usual!
Finish at 6:15—great a chance to drink water! I DIDN’T EAT!! MISTAKE!!! I felt hungry!
POUND CLASS 6:30-7:15–and you know that POUND is an energetic class. Sit down at 7:20–WATER!!!!
Now, I have to meet my trainer for an hour of weights. He said that I looked worn out—but I felt OK so off we go.
I’m half way though my sets on upright rows–I seem to be OK but, on finishing the second set, I literally had to stop, and just say–“I’m done!’ I felt I had to get out of the gym RIGHT NOW! I had trouble lifting my arms up and didn’t know if I could stand!
I have never stopped workout before–but I thought “I’m shaking, I might throw up–or pass out, my ears are ringing, my legs feel like lead” I think I might just burst into tears! Not doing THAT again! I had some trouble walking to the car! I had to rest in the car for about 10 minutes before I felt I could drive the 3 minutes to my house. I was freezing. Nuked some soup, and huddled under electric blanket. It took about 45 minutes for me to feel warm.
I woke up at 5:20 AM–have to meet friends in the gym–don’t want to go!! BUT I dragged my backside out of bed–head to the gym, but have already decided I am not working out–I will keep them company, but my body is obviously telling me to rest!
So–a peaceful crossword puzzle, breakfast with a friend–so civilized!!! And my trainer has told me not come in today, and rest for a couple of days–and no argument from me–I give!
10K RUN for Literacy this weekend! I’m ready! Just need to remember FUEL!
