Donuts are Bad

Or maybe vog is bad. Or donuts and too much coffee too late in the afternoon, combined with sprints on the Ala Wai on a day where the vog is so thick that the air seems to shimmer, is bad.

The upshot is that I upchucked in practice yesterday. We were doing time trials. I felt fine going in. The first 1/4 mile sprint, and it was like I was smoking again. I just couldn't get a full breath. After the 1/2 mile sprint, I tossed a little. I tried to make it subtle; I just leaned out close to the water and made like I was spitting. Only Geoff noticed.

Then I realized it was all going to come out.

Made it through the next two mile sprints, and then I had to wimp out and tell the coach. I wasn't even sick, is the funny thing. It was just, my body wanted those donuts out.

Lesson learned. No Donuts before Sprints.

Nah, I was very subtle about it all (I hope). No projectile vomiting, just a bit of delicate purging. Most didn't even notice until I had to raise my hand and say "Coach ... I'm not feeling so well."
