Tasting Blood on the Run
Running in this Learn to Run clinic three times a week has turned out to be rather entertaining. The nature of the class is such that you get a collection of complete beginners who really aren't sure how this running thing works.
Tonight, a member of the group who shall remain nameless became alarmed during the first rep because she could taste blood in her mouth. She was convinced something terrible was happening and decided to cut the run short.
That blood she tasted in her mouth, that was the taste of iron from the energy bar she ate before heading out. I advised her to hock a lugie next time and see if it's red before bailing. It's a rookie mistake.
