Puking in my Purse (a low point in life)

Sorry for the gross title but today was not a good day. I went to work ready (but not thrilled) to start the week. I had a great weekend but it definitely went too fast. I started feeling kinda sick in my morning meeting but thought it might be from having a few bar-food type munchies while watching the Super Bowl and maybe my tum wasn’t digesting it too well after being so healthy for the last 2 weeks. My head only got worse and since a stomach bug has been going around I pretty much jet out of work as soon as I told my bosses I was sick. Well for anyone familiar with cabs in NYC they are not a good idea for anyone with a slight pension for car-sickness or are already not feeling well. But I thought no way did I want to commute home on the subway. Needless to say I did not make it home. But such a smartie I am. I quickly dumped out all of the contents of my Longchamp purse into my gym bag in time before puking my brains out in the purse…twice. UGH. AT the red light I opened up the cab door and discarded the contents of my stomach and rode the 10 more blocks home and went right into bed. This is the second Monday in a row I’ve missed my workout and it’s really bumming me out. Do you think it’s safe to go running tomorrow (assuming it was just a 24-hour thing) or just take it easy?

    Oh my gosh, you poor thing. Take it easy. Get better so you can run strong later.

    Oh that’s horrible. If you decided to run today, make sure that you are hydrated and that you aren’t running a fever. Stomach bugs can make you so dehydrated.

    Hey Robyn,
    In regard to your question about sport beans on Mom vs. Marathon: Jelly Belly makes a product called Sport Beans — they are little energy jelly beans for runners. I like them because they are easy on my tummy, and because they are small and fit in my fuel belt. I like the orange ones. You can find them at REI and probably most sporting goods stores, but I also found them at Rite Aid recently. Hope you are feeling better!

      Okay I’ll have to try that. Right now I never eat (or even drink water) during a race but I’m thinking that needs to change for the half.
