King of the Bonk-o

I bonked today. Almost an hour and a half into my last distance run before the mini, I started salivating, which I thought was weird; if anything I was getting pretty dehydrated by that point. A few minutes later I started to feel nauseated, and a few minutes after that my face and hands went numb. By the end of the run I was having trouble doing simple math problems, by which I mean counting to 60, in my head. I walked for just a minute, then realized that if I didn’t keep running I was just going to slow down continually. In short, it felt terrible.

It didn’t start out too well, either. 59th Street, which is near the beginning of all my runs, is completely closed for construction, both lanes and both sidewalks. Incidentally, this is part of the course for both the marathon and the half next weekend. I’m calling tomorrow to make sure they, you know, know. So I had to backtrack about three-quarters of a mile to get around it. If you don’t look at the route maps normally (and honestly, I’m not sure why you would) you may want to check this one out. It’s pretty funny.
