I just got back from an hour run/walk that was cut short by a blasted BUG.
Has anyone else ever experienced this... read on...
It was nice and cool, but there were lots of annoying bugs out when I left the house. The kind that are like huge gnats that kind of float around in swarms but don't bite. They stick in your hair and all over your clothes.
Well, I finally got out of the swarm and was enjoying a good 30 min of walking and running, enjoying music on my nano. I was feeling good, so I decided I would do a couple of short 'sprints' to get my heart rate up. About 5 steps into sprinting I felt a huge bug hit me in the eye. It felt like it stung my eyeball and lodged up under my eye lid. I immediately began rubbing it and it was not just an irritant, man, it really HURT. I started to freak out, thinking it was poisonous, and turned and headed for home. My eye was watering like crazy and nothing was coming out. I kept rubbing my shirt right on my eyeball (sorry , I know that's gross) and my finger on my eyeball but could not dislodge anything and it was really stinging. I just walked home as quickly as I could.
I've been home about 30 minutes now and I've done everything possible - flushing with water and visine. It doesn't sting so much, but I still feel like there is something big in there, and I can't get it out!
What a horrendous experience... anyway, I just had to vent. Oh, yeah, earlier today I drove to a great hilly area to bike and whne I took my bike out my rear tire was totally flat. i had no spare tube. Maybe I just wasn't meant to work out today.
