I went to a 5k, but I am not sure whether to enter it in my race log or mark it down as a DNF. It was in the 80's and humid at the 9:00 start. I started out slow. First mile in 9:39, but at the halfway point I was feeling pretty sick from the heat. It probably doesn't help that I was sick to my stomach all day yesterday. Something weird going on in my stomach that makes me not want to eat or drink. I even skipped my coffee this morning and I don't do that unless I have to for a medical test. (No headaches yet I'm happy to say.)
Anyway, I started walking around halfway. I tried a couple times to run again but gave up and waked it in for a finishing time of 38:45.
My splits were 9:39, then a 12:00 something, and then a 15:00 something, and a couple minutes over the last tenth.
So I am unsure how to categorize this one. It isn't a race, but it isn't technically a DNF. For now, I have it listed in my races because I paid for it and got a shirt.
I just got back from the condo hotdog lunch where I went ahead and ate. I am now waiting to see how sick that will make me feel. I do not feel very good but hopefully it won't get worse.
Our town's fireworks are set-off very near our condos, so even though it'll be hot, we'll take our chairs over to the in-laws and see the show. (The in-laws condo has a front row seat.)
Currently we are at 95° with a heat index of 110°.
