I don't really know how much sleep it was cause I did a lot of waking up every 20 minutes or so cause my neck hurt or I was overheating or I was freezing. A blast.
Head is definitely not great today, neck also is not great. When I was waking up around 6 it felt like moving at all was too much of an effort which didn't feel great. Got a little more sleep after then though and that seems to have helped a bit. Still exhausted though.
Extremely disappointed that I won't make it the the NEOC training camp which I've been looking forward to for ages. It's been one of the things that I've been holding onto to make me feel better about this summer and I'm a bit stressed that I now won't get that check.
Update- went to the doc, he thinks it's most likely just really bad allergies but did a covid and strep test just in case. Must say I'm going to be annoyed that I'm not at the camp if it's just allergies and I'm feeling better tomorrow.
Neck is still hurting and I'm feeling extremely tired and weak. bit worried.
Attempted a walk - it didn't go well.
or something like three idk kinda been out of it. definitely could easily sleep more
there is not a single position that my neck is not hurting and my body just feels awful in a way that i cannot explain. thriving. mom suggested lyme, feels kinda like i did when i had covid minus the swollen lymph nodes. i dont like either of those options.

This was technically not awful, not too hard but physically I was dying from basically the first control. It was just so stinkin' hot that I felt air headed from pretty much the fourth control. I was consistently battling my head cause I got to 3 and was just thinking to myself "I'm not having fun. This is not fun. I don't want to do this" but I managed to flip that mindset a bit into this is training for difficult days. Still had to do a lot of walking, still often was at the point of counting down to when I was going to make myself run, but I got through it.

Around Arlington Great Meadows, first lap with my mom and second lap faster. The plan was second lap at a steady pace that was just under tempo but I think I likely pushed it a little harder than I should have. Going to try and not be depressed by the slow pace...
