Run Distance: 3 miles, Run Time: 30 minutes
Good news...I actually got a run in yesterday night. Although, I will say it wasn't near as far as I'd hoped I'd go. My knees just barely started to tinge at the end so I think that they are doing well. I think I'm going to forgo the sports doc for a little while to see if I can battle this one on my own.
A new problem surfaced yesterday. My arm is still sore from the Tetanus shot so I couldn't lift weights. But I have had some strange other symptoms since the shot, including a slight fever, nauseous, etc. I guess this is somewhat typical for a Tetanus shot. Upon running 3 miles, I found that I felt like I was going to faint. I knew the feeling well...I was prone to fainting in the shower when I was a freshman in college. I have yet to faint since then. Anyways, my eyes started to get fuzzy, my hearing was on the verge of ringing, and my breathing seemed a bit labored. Usually there is a decent amount of time that serves as a warning prior to fainting for me. I tried to see if I could prevent it by breathing deep but that didn't work. I had to hop off the treadmill. Only trying not to cause a commotion, I quickly ran to get wipes to clean off the treadmill....barely seeing the wipes in front of me. After that, I went to sit down. Eventually my vision came back and I didn't faint. I'm not entirely sure where this came from...but it scared the crap out of me. The last place I want to faint is on the treadmill. It was bad enough in the shower in college.
Anyways, I seem to be alright now. I think it might have been the tetanus shot because that hasn't happened to me in YEARS! I'm running today as well...hopefully all goes well.
