Stop the room, I'd like to get off
But a Claritin and Sudafed later and I felt much better - not 100% but not spinny anymore. All morning I wondered if I would feel up to exercising. I wasn't going to push myself if things were still spinning but since that improved I went over to the gym at lunch and got my C210K run in (W4D3) as planned. I was a little sad to end week 4 as this is the last week of shorter run segments. I keep telling myself that I'll be fine with week 5 and beyond (after all I had the same worries last year and it turned out fine) but the worrywart in my brain is asking me if I want to repeat week 4. :)
While the run went ok I was pretty much spent for the rest of the day. My head hurt, my forehead felt warm even though the rest of me was cold, and I was super tired. I have prescription medicine for the vertigo but it knocks me out so it's not something I can take if working or driving.
I was looking back at older entries to see if I had documented other summer/July vertigo moments and found this post: Thigh Envy - it has nothing to do with vertigo but it's kind of funny because I talk about how I couldn't wear spandex shorts by themselves. Now I routinely wear spandex bike/compression shorts (with no other shorts over them) and I'm not as self conscious about my fat thighs (which are bigger now than they were in 2011). I still think that overall I look better in capris but it's too hot to care that much.
Anyway, here's hoping this vertigo thing doesn't last too long - I don't need another thing to get me off track again. I'll skip the abs and tone class on Tuesday if I still have symptoms because I imagine there will be too much movement in that class that will trip a dizzy spell.
**I woke up this morning feel much better - no spinouts. So I went ahead and checked out the Abs and Tone class (more on that in a different post) and wouldn't you know it, as soon as I went down on the mat the room went around again. I was able to finish the class but I had a couple more spells before it was over. Stupid inner ears.
