My mom said that she and my dad were okay with me running alone as long as I texted her every 10 minutes or so and stayed on busy roads so that if I collapsed someone would see me. Because technically tomorrow would be the day I’m clear to be alone anyways, though it’s an ECT day so nope! Not really. Anyways, I was pretty stoked about that because I’ve gotten really bored of just running laps. I did VA loop intending to do an out and back to get 6 miles in, but then I started feeling really weird about 2.5 miles in. I was a bit head warpy/dizzy and couldn’t focus my eyes, just felt strange. So I texted my mom and finished the loop- the shortest way home. Then just lay down for a while in hopes that the weird feeling would pass. I wonder if I had a partial seizure, but I don’t really know. I never lost consciousness and it was only my left side, once I was home my hand started shaking/spazzing out if I tried to lift it, but eventually it stopped. My right hand was fine, it was weird. Same with my legs. Only my left leg twitched/jerked uncontrollably.
Anyways, my run felt really good until that all started. I kept it slow and didn’t pay attention to pace, just ran comfortably at a pace that didn’t feel hard. A pace I could easily keep up for 6 miles. Ended up averaging 8:14, I was surprised because I was expecting to feel more out of shape. I like going slower.
