I have about a 40 minute drive into work and its always stop and go traffic. Around 30 minutes later, I was getting very very sleepy. I pulled into a Costco parking lot with the intention of having a quick nap in the empty parking lot (I've done this a couple of times before) but I noticed there were no cars lined up for the Costco Gas so I gassed up instead. The fresh air helped wake me up so I drove the rest of the way to work. Once I got there, I thought about closing my door and turning off the lights as I was still drowsy but made it through the morning. I decided to go swim at the local community center to make up for this morning. I was feeling pretty hungry but had a Cliff Bar. I've swam a couple of times at the center and it’s a nice pool but several years ago, I almost got into a fight with the head lifeguard as he didn't like the way I was swimming. He has since moved on, so I go there once in a while for my third swim of the week.
There were the usual suspects swimming in the fast lane but this time there was a guy who was older than me but way faster. Between the two of us, most of the breast strokers stayed away. Normally I just swim a simple 3 x 1,000 meters but that gets pretty boring so I took one of the workouts that coach expected me to do (which I never). Just to mix things up, she put in some backstroke. I started swimming on my back but became really dizzy and nauseated. I kept crashing into the lane markers so I switched back to front crawl and finished the rest of the set.
Once back into the office, I felt really light headed but I had a meeting. I quickly ate my lunch and then went into my meeting. Afterwards, I felt a little better and my headache subsided but I still googled "anti-inflams and ODing.
I think I'll wait a little longer before taking more anti-inflams.
