Come on Down...
and help me figure out what the hell went wrong today.
Decided to swim during lunch break to break up the day today. Had my new swimsuit and goggles in tow. (Both of which worked wonderfully. I got the speedo women's vanquisher goggles, clear. I switched out the nosepiece to the smallest one it came with. They didn't fog or leak at all.)
I got in my 2000 yard workout in just shy of 40 minutes.
200 warm up
100 catch up drill
100 slow arm recovery
100 fingertip drill
2*150 (50 slow arm, 50 head down, 50 sprint)
4*200 20 second rest
3:12 (Interestingly enough I started humming the SOS song in my head during this last 200 and that seemed to help get me back on pace)
Got out of the pool and headed for the locker room. Major dizziness and headache getting out of the shower. I stopped and drank from the fountain then attempted to get dressed. Every time I attempted to do something my heart would start racing and my hands got all clammy. I felt like I wanted to vomit. After sitting on the locker room floor for what seemed like an eternity I got up and bought some M&Ms from the machine, thinking some nutrition (using the term loosely) would help. No go. Somehow I managed to drive myself home. David gave me some Gatorade and I slept it off. For like 2 hours. We just got done eating dinner and watching Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
I am feeling a bit better now. Still have a headache. I have absolutely no clue what happened today or why. But it was incredibly scary considering I was only in the pool for 40 minutes.
Let's hope my immune system is just revolting from the marathon still. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
