I ran a 12 minute mile yesterday, just to see if I could. And yes, I could. Today I decided to push myself a little bit more...10 minute mile (I have no idea how long/far I can run, I usually jogged at 4.5 mph for 30 minutes instead of trying short bursts, and even that was a year ago!) I made it 5 out of the 10 minutes. Okay, a 10 minute mile is not possible right now. But I know what to work towards.
After that I went on my usual weight lifting regime (sumo squats, lunges, romanian deadlift, lateral pulldown, tricep curl, assisted chin ups, jack knife crunches, and backwards crunches with a weight).
After that I went to change and catch the bus home. I was early for the bus so I decided to grab a drink at the university bus terminal (I admit to occassionally drinking a sugar free Rockstar after work outs if I'm feeling extra beat and need to get things done in the short term. I'm aware of the crash and take it in stride usually having done what I needed to do by then). To get to the convenience store at the terminal I had to zip down some steps and for the first time ever I experienced vertigo and my head was spinning while I was going down them, also my legs more "collapsed" than bent with each step down.
Anyway I got home, had a bowl of homemade soup with 1/4 package of ramen noodles and a tbsp of cream and now I feel fine.
Was it just too low sugar? Or am I setting myself up for an injury of some kind?
