My run today was no bueno. I had a big salad for lunch, with romaine, steamed broccoli, tomato, and some chickpeas. 2 hours later, my stomach felt a bit wonky, so I had a glass of water. 30 minutes after that, I headed out on my run.
Oh dear. I seriously thought I was going to throw up at some points. I ended up walking about 1/3 of the time. My salad was sitting in my stomach like I'd had a double serving of beef bourginon. The last five minutes I realized that if I can run with this, then my 5K in less than two weeks shouldn't be a problem. That's right, I'm running the Komen 5K on Oct. 3. I'm very excited to buy some pink running wear!
Side question: what do you wear to run outside when it gets cold? I started running in late April and was just wearing old yoga pants and long-sleeved shirts. I'm hoping I can keep running outside for most, if not all of winter in Denver. I'm worried about the dry, cold air aggravating my asthma. Any suggestions?
