Another sign I've been dehydrated...

... I've been getting nosebleeds lately! Ick. Luckily, it hasn't happened on my runs this weekend but it's no fun. (Note I am typing this with a piece of tissue stuck up my nose. Hot, I know.)

I need to get better with drinking my water. Even my optometrist told me to drink more water as she could tell my eyes were dry during my exam on Friday. (To SG - yes, that means I am no longer mooching off Dr. M, anymore - haha) On a positive note, my eyes have not gotten worse as my prescription is still the same - sweet.

I ran again with Nike this morning - only 4 miles as I could still feel some soreness from yesterday's 14 miler. I got a free pair of Nike dri-fit socks for trying on their shoes during the run. Two years ago, they gave away white socks, last year it was pink, and this year it is black... I don't know, I think it looks kind of weird to wear black socks with running shoes. It reminds me of my dad or something.

Anyway, back to watching the Olympics!

Yikes about the nosebleeds. Dang I can't even remember the last time I had one of those.

I didn't know that nosebleeds were a sign of dehydration. I think I'll have another glass of water now.

Oh, and the black socks with running shoes...I'm with you...just can't picture it.

I came across your blog from Running to Stand Still. Those nosebleeds really suck! Definitely drink that water, you'll feel much better. And I agree, there's something very wrong about black socks and running... I'm sure there's a reason Nike is just giving them away.

Just found you through Leana's blog. Looks like we have the same taste in races :) I'm hoping to go Goofy again in 2010, too.

I thought nose bleeds were due to "digging too deep"? That's how I get them anyway.

hey! that's great that you bought a bike too! I'd like to tell you how the pedals are going, but I have yet to try out the clip side--too scared :P I'll be practicing my "dismount" on some grass, know what i mean? btw, sorry bout the nosebleeds. did you know that people put tampons up their nostrils for really bad ones? LOL!

i just got done looking through my sock drawer and i think all i have is black socks. i vote that the black socks and running shoes make you look faster. (maybe i like the blaack socks because i have black shoes as well.) as a wolverine, i thought you would be a fan of the look. i think the fab 5 started it.

hey...so here's a weird question.... I love love love your haircut in your profile pic and am thinking of doing something similar. Do you have any more pics that show it from diff angles so I can give hairlady a better idea of what I want?

Yes, drinking alot of water makes a huge difference. I mention it to my patients all the time and they are really surprised.. but it absolutely works.

Congrats on the great long run and it will definitely pay off.

Hi Audrey - Came across your blog (thanks, Marcy!). Now, what's wrong with my black socks again?

I'm so so bad with the water too. Got to get better. Good luck!

Carly said...

I am really bad with water too. Thanks for the reminder.
