I'm referring to my exercise today. I'm sure you have noticed that I haven't posted in a few days about my 1/2 marathon training. That is because my whole family has been sick. We have all had a mild case of the flu. We had stomach issues, fevers and all over body aches and chills. The worst part for me was being exhausted.
I finally started to feel a little better today. I am not 100% but at least I had a little energy. I tried to get myself back on the treadmill for a 3 mile run but unfortunately it didn't happen. I decided to push myself and run faster then I have been. I made it through the first mile but almost didn't make it through the second mile and didn't even start a third mile. The cramps in my side were so bad I felt like I was going to fall over. I think it was because I am not yet feeling 100% and I tried running faster then my body is ready for.
Does anyone else get those cramps in your side when you run? How do you deal with them?
