Plan B

Well hello! It has been 5 days since I haven't uploaded anything on my blog! So today, I have plenty of things to say. First off, Saturday, I ran 3km with my dad, AND FINISHED IT! Yes, maybe we weren't going very fast and yes, it did start hurting a little bit at the end but hey, I'm just happy to see that things are going in a better direction. The other thing that I feel I should inform of is that I kind of fainted because of a heatstroke on Monday. The funny thing is, it happened after I biked for about 14km. Like, what the hell? I can RUN 14km without fainting so biking that shouldn't have been so hard. The whole story goes like this: My friend, Virginie, lives in St-Hubert. We wanted to go shopping together that day around 1:00 P.M. and I had absolutely no way to get there except by bike. It was about 12:20 A.M. when I left and I hadn't eaten or drank a thing all day. It was also about 35 degrees outside and there were no trees for shade on the bicycle path. I arrived at her house around 12:45 A.M. You realize that's insanely fast, right? When Virginie came to my house after that, it took her 1 hour...I think I went too fast. So to continue my story, as I reach her house and get off my bike, I started to feel a little dizzy. I'm guessing it's normal after pedalling like a maniac for 25 minutes so I ignore it. I come in the house, ask for a glass of water and after that I can't remember a thing. I wake up 5 minutes later, I hear someone say, "call 9-1-1!". I'm soaking wet from head to toe, lying on her kitchen floor with the whole family starring at me. What the hell just happened, I was thinking to myself. It had never fainted before so it was really confusing. After eating some food and drinking some juice, I felt much better. We still did go shopping afterwards even if I had an intense head ache; I mean, anything for shopping, right? But I am very thankful to have been rescued by Virginie and her family. I mean, what would have happened if I would have fainted on the biking path? Now I know it's very important to eat and drink before a physical activity because I seriously don't want that to happen to me ever again, it's not cool. Haha, get it? And now today, I did 10km of biking around Chambly. I have to say, I actually really hate biking. But I am willing to make an effort because I'm never giving up!
