I know I’m not in the best of shape, but I have some decent endurance. I just don’t know if I’m pushing myself too hard or what, but after my experience today, I have to wonder why people do this on a regular basis.
Some even like it. Freaks.
So I work out today. Warm up on a bike and then do some upper body weights. Cool down and grab my stuff to go. I felt fine throughout the workout and even after. Tired, but nothing like what I was about to experience.
About ten minutes after my workout, right before I left the locker room, I started feeling ill.
I wasn’t light headed, but nauseous. It started out light, but grew fairly quickly.
It was like getting puke inducing drunk, only without the alcoholic haze to make it somewhat bearable.
Made it to the hotel and took a thirty minute nap, then ate. Those both helped tremendously.
Not sure if I pushed myself further than I should have, but if I did, then I was totally unaware. In fact, I still could have worked out more, but I had done everything that I planned so I called it a day. If my body is delaying the warning signs for exhaustion until well after the point of no return, I’m in trouble.
I can’t believe people really like doing this.
Of course, true to form, I’m going to do it again tomorrow.
