I cannot catch a break! I actually had not a single BH contraction, but this run contained worse. FAR WORSE. This might have been my #1 most scary run ever. I am even hesitant to write about it in a public log lest someone think I'm insane for ever running again! Anyway, my son woke me up at 4:45 and I had a hard time falling back asleep so I just got up at 5:30, had half a cup of coffee and a small granola bar and hit the road. I had to rush a little, but I had enough time for 5 before I needed to get home to get ready for farmers market duties. Cut to the chase. I ran 2.5 out which finished up a long tough hill. I turned around and ducked in the woods to pee when I felt the heart palpitation. I get them from time to time, so I wasn't worried. They can suck, but they're harmless. It wouldn't go away so I sat on the split rail fence and tried to relax - usually works. Didn't work and then I felt like an IDIOT for not taking my phone! I started to feel anxious and then I felt like I was going to faint. Alone. On the street. Pregnant. Unconscious. NO! I tried to walk the 200 meters or so to the closest house but I couldn't. I was on the verge of passing out. I had to sit in the dirt next to the road. I sat there fighting to stay conscious and prayed for a car. Nothing. And then I WILLED myself to relax. RELAX. It was my only hope of staying conscious and stopping the stupid palpitation. Thank goodness it worked. I walked a bit to make sure my blood pressure could sustain me and then I jogged home grateful for each step closer to home. I got home and hugged my husband who was starting to worry about me - I was 15 minutes later than I said I'd be. New rules while pregnant: bring phone or friend for every run. And a gel just in case and water even for short runs.
