im sick-ive got the flu-feel like shit
My nearest death excperience happened tonight-i believe myself lucky not to have incured a minor heart attack
OK- tonight for some reason i fancied a jog-my first time ever coz im not into exercise in such-except doing the dance mat or dancing around in general.
WELL was going 4 a jog and my dad decided to join me-
[BACK GROUND KNOWLEDGE-my dad is the fittest person i know he runs/cycles/plays cricket/blackbelt in karate-and is overall fit guy-doesnt smoke or drink]
ANYWAY we go jogging/light run
we run a mile-my heart is thumping
then we turn back
aFter a few minutes i get pins and needles in my head-and i think one of my lungs has collapsed
so i ask my dad to give me a piggy back the rest of the half a mile or so - HE LAUGHS
"WALK" he says while he does some side-step skipping-that pro fitness people do while waiting for the slow coaches to catch up
THEN I THINK "i can do this"
so i start to run again-i give myself motivation in my head:
YOU CAN DO THIS-COME ON
AND THE OTHER VOICE IS LIKE:
JUST STOP! ITS OK - YOU R GOING TO KILL YOURSELF
got to the library and thought "not long now"
then i went slightly deaf as the blood was pumping furiously through my ears
went tingly all over and thought-THIS IS IT
at the sweet shop now-and i knew if my dad wasnt there i would've just laid down on the pavement and try to get a full breath of air instead of the micro panting i was doing.
BUT HAD TO SAVE FACE-IM HIGHLY COMPETITIVE
legs felt ready to buckle
but i was finally home-had a cold shower-where i almost threw up TWICE and its taken approx. 20 minutes for my heart to stop trying to escape my chest
spoke to mark where he said:
"RUNNING IS JUST STUPID ! ESPECIALLY CAUSE YOU HAVE A COLD. BUT IN GENERAL ITS JUST STUPID-UNLESS YOUR RUNNING FOR A BUS OR FROM A TIGER!"
