I did my best speed-work in 10 years on Tuesday (16 x 400 @ 6:30-6:45 pace w/ 100 recovery).

That night woke up with severe vertigo, fought it blindly till Thursday and went to ER. Now I can't walk a straight line; but only slight dizziness. First time ever suffering this malady. They gave me dilaudid (headache pain) and valium for vertigo. Some strong medicine! I went from one extreme to the other. Two days later I still haven't gotten my balance back. So much for my 5k today...

four mile swim, holy smokes!!

Indeed! Where is it warm enough to stay in the water that long without a wetsuit? Most certainly nowhere near the Bay Area!

Susan, nice map screenshots. What app/device do you use to record?

I've been crippled by a severely malfunctioning Shimano Di2 rear derailleur, which translates to going from a 241 mile week to a 52 mile week (last 2 weeks). Getting bored and restless, I did my first run in over a year, choosing to start at the bottom of the famed Dipsea Stairs (to Edgewood Ave, Cypress Trail, Tenderfoot Trail, Cascade - back to stairs.

Dipsea Stairs off the couch = OUCH.

Although I ran with a short stride to minimize muscle recruitment in an effort to limit soreness after the run, 3 days later it's hard to walk. ;-)

Tobia, nita pointed me here as she knows I sometimes have the same ailment you are describing. From this youtube link there are several more videos with practical ways to resettle inner ear crystals that may be causing your vertigo.

When I do these Epley exercises, it exasperates the symptoms but I try to hang in there as repeating them several times seems to help. At least for me, medicines at best have only alleviated the symptoms and often do nothing to help the overlying cause of my vertigo, the wandering crystals in my inner ear canals.

This first link has some basic head alignment strategies. The second link is a quick vid explaining the physiological aspects. From both links, the other suggested youtube videos may have more detailed head, neck exercises to try.

Best of luck to you. I have had bouts of this my entire adult life.

Timid & Nita, thanks for the tips. I did some research yesterday and read about the Epley Exercises. I did it once.

Strange sensations to say the least. I walk like I am inebriated, now I have severe ear ache.

edit: went to an ENT doc yesterday, the vertigo was caused by a virus. It takes 6 weeks to totally dissipate and hopefully never return. I was already on antibiotics for sinus infection. They tested my hearing; not good news; but most of the damage is from old school shotgun shooting (without earplugs).

Using the prescribed treatment by dr timid to help with balance. Going for a run today...

If you have an earache too, get to a doctor!

Sounds like you have an inner ear infection.

I lost one ear to sudden idiopathic deafness and had screwed up balance for more than a year. (probably from a viral infection of the inner ear)

You don't want to go there!

Susan, nice map screenshots. What app/device do you use to record?

Hardman....they are the Google Earth images from uploads from my Garmin 500 device I use on my bike and Garmin Forerunner 410 wrist unit for my running.
The couch to Dipsea...crazy person. Haven't done a Dipsea in over 20 years, could say its because I haven't gotten a slot in th lottery, but really I haven't even applied!

Yesterday: finished the metric century of the Santa Cruz Mtns Challenge, 7000 feet of climbing. Today: trying to reclaim my body. Think another ice bath in store.

Two hours on the road bike this morning, at an easy conversational pace. Managed to squeeze it in there between the end of commute traffic and the beginning of the heat for a very pleasant ride.

I ran 7 sluggish miles on my "hill course". I woke up with the wobbly legs; but the Epley exercise helped.

The ENT doc said my vertigo was caused by a virus; he didn't name it and said effects will linger for about 6 weeks. I am on antibiotics for sinus infection, and that should clear up abnormalities in my ear drum. He didn't name the virus, and didn't say how he came to that conclusion.

From what I read it must be Vestibular neuronitis; due to the symptoms, my respiratory problems and his treatment.

The other viral vertigo disorder, Cochlear neuronitis, sounds far more serious.

17.1 miles run in 3 days. Getting back up to base is tough.

The Running Forums are abuzz today about some guy whose intelligence suffered from his brain boiling in his skull at Badwater. Be careful.

Your brain has to be a little pre-fried to enter the Badwater Race. Local does good, finished 9th overall at Badwater (2011). He's a bad man, 49 years old at the time.

Cooler temps have been good for running in Auburn lately. Saturday, 7 miles on WST in ASRA. Sunday, ran Goat Hill from Quarry Road parking, to cool and back to no hands bridge (11 to 12 miles). Hoping to run 30 to 40 this week. Hope everyone else is racking up the miles. More hills!

Swam today

500 yards backstroke
500 yards crawl
500 yards kick
500 yards breaststroke

Swam 1,000 of butterfly three days earlier.

Plan to climb Cathedral Peak in a few days just for the fun of it.

Looking forward to the bliss on top.

Regarding badwater

http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.php?topic_id=1954729&msg=2196679#msg2196679

Anyway, it's been a while, but I walked a mile in my shoes.

I also ran significantly more than that, still coughing, but those Werther's candies really help

Inadvertent 24 mile sub marathon with no water on Sunday. Due to not fully charged GPS, unmarked trail branches on a new trail to me = new adventure. Live large!
