Weekly Wrap October 16- Hershey Half

Good morning!! how are you today? I hope you had a fantastic weekend! All good here, we had a fantastic and busy week!

Thank you  Holly and Tricia for hosting the Weekly Wrap post! Linking up with these super awesome ladies today.

Training Numbers
Wednesday: 5 easy tempo
Thursday: 3 miles
Friday: 4 miles tempo
Sunday: Hershey half Marathon

Congratulations to those of you who raced this weekend! And a special shout out to Suzy, Ali ,  Marcia, Deborah (Who also ran Hershey Half ) and Karen.  Also, Last week I forgot to mention Lacey and Raquelita, both running the Chicago Marathon. All of you are such great inspiration! Even though I was doing the Hershey Half, I always get so envious of those doing other races.

Last Monday we enjoyed some family time at the Cherry Crest  Adventure Corn Maze. I've been going there for 5 years, always on the second Monday of October. This year, my sisters, niece and brother joined us for some maze fun. We had a great time! We ate fresh apple cider donuts, pulled some tractors, and got lost on the corn maze. I'll do a longer recap later, it was great fun!


The rest of the week was busy and tiring. On Wednesday I didn't want to run, I was so tired from work that I wanted to go home and nap. But I went for my 5 mile run instead. I also skipped Zumba at the Y. I'm thinking that I'm done with it now.

On Saturday my son and I headed to Hershey Park for the packet pick up, some light trick or treat at the park and his the Hershey Half Kids Fun Run. My love Nugget had so much fun!

Sunday Morning we completed our second Hershey Half Marathon. I can say I met all my goals for it! I will do a recap later this week, and *SPOILER ALERT* Roger finally got a new PR for the Half Marathon! Also, I might have cursed off some hills.



Sunday after we got home from the Hershey Half, I did all my normal recovery stuff, drank lots of water, drank nuun, coffee, ate food, showered, and snacked on cookies. But around 4 pm, I started feeling really sick. I was nauseous, and light headed. I had some animal crackers and laid down until I felt better. For a while, I was nauseous and really hungry at the same time. Has that ever happened to any of you?

  2. Thanks for the shout out! You look so cute in your race garb. I can't WAIT to hear about your race! I'm dying to know! And yes, I have got super sick after a race before, and it was because my electrolytes were all off. Once I forced myself to take in salt, I started feeling thirsty and hungry again and the nausea went away.

    1. Thank you Suzy! you are too kind! Thanks, you are right, now that I think about it, I didn't force myself to eat more salty stuff.

  3. I can't eat anything too healthy after a race or I feel sick like that. I try to stick to super high sodium foods. But often if I feel sick to my stomach I try to eat a little something as sometimes that solves my problem. Usually something salty like pretzels though for me. Chipotle is one of my favorite post race meals. Since it's delicious, and sodium filled.

    Love those medals & excited to read your recap!

    1. Thank you Jessie! we went to breakfast after and I had some bacon, and eggs, but it must not have been enough. I agree with you, can't eat too healthy after a race.

  4. Congrats to Roger on the PR! I had that experience after the Army 10 miler where I felt nauseous so I couldn't eat but was then hungry :( I did choke down some salted almonds and felt a bit better afterward. So maybe it was the salt like one of the previous commenters said?

    1. Thank you Chaitali! it seems that could have been the issue! I will have to remember that for next time.

      Thanks!!

  5. Fresh apple cider donuts, yummmmmmmm.... congrats to Roger on his PR and yay for your son having a good time at the race! I am sorry that you weren't feeling so well afterwards. I know that feeling of nausea and hunger and it's the worst. I also agree with the comments about your electrolytes potentially being off. Have you ever tried Saltstick Capsules? They work really well for me (and I am NOT being paid to endorse them or anything). I hope you are feeling much better now!

    That medal looks good enough to eat, literally!!! Chocolate, yummmmmmmm....... (notice a theme here? LOL) Looking forward to reading your race recap. =)

    1. Thank you Emily!! It was the weirdest feeling! I kept staring at the chips we got from the race and craving them, and hating them at the same time!! I should have sucked it up and eaten some, that would have helped me faster. I feel lots better now, thanks! I'll check out the salt capsules, thanks!

      We got a chocolate at one of the aid stations, so it was all about the chocolate this weekend!

    1. oh and thanks for my shout :) I didn't tell anyone because i was worried I may not get to run the race. My feet are so finicky, they hurt last week but the race went great!

    2. Thank you Karen! I felt like I was running faster, but I did stop a couple of times because of weird pains.

      Thank you ! you are too kind!

      I saw it this morning and quickly made a note to add your shout out!

      I'm glad your race went great! Congratulations!

  7. I hope you are feeling better now! Congrats to you and Roger for meeting all your goals!!!!!!!!!! FREAKING AWESOME. :) I have always wanted to go to that corn maze. Will you adopt me into your family? You always do the things I want to do... I could do them, I just sit at home in my jammies instead.

    1. Megan, consider yourself adopted into our family! just quick warning, we are all crazy and most of the time, we don't know how to sit still. And on the days that you feel like being home in your jammies, no problem! my mom is a homebody too, she hates that we drag her out.

  8. I have also felt sick after a race, and usually its because I either didnt eat enough or didn't eat/drink the right stuff. Congrats on the race and on meeting all your goals!

    1. Thank you Lisa! I think it all came down to not enough salts... lesson learned!

  9. Sorry to hear you felt so sick! I don't usually feel sick after a race, but at my last 2 marathons I really felt like I was going to vomit at mile 14. Ugh. I'm sure it has to do with fueling. Congrats on finishing!

    1. The medal is great! and so is the race! There is lots, but we can work at them one at a time.

  11. Great race for you, if I feel off it's usually right after the race not later in the day. I have a couple more weeks before my first Fall half but I plan on going to some haunted houses to kick off the Halloween season. Id I tell you I'd be in New Orleans, spooky! :)

  12. The Corn Maze sounds like so much fun. I used to love events like that when my kids were little. Congratulations on meeting your goals in the half marathon. I can't wait to read the details. I think the medal is so sweet! (Pun intended!) I don't usually feel nauseous after a race. I'm using starving, though. Thanks for linking, Ana!
