Have you ever exercised so vigorously that you threw up? (UQ)

mobligity: I was being sarcastic with my first message (saying that a 10k run is harder than a 10k swim), and honest with my second message (saying that a 10k swim is harder than a 26.2 mile run). Sorry that was confusing.

after the first wrestling match of every season, but then I got used to how extreme it was after that

09/17/12 3:29 pm

No but I have been way too close too many times

No, but there are times that I'm mowing the lawn in 90 degree heat and I have to rest because I feel nauseous. I suppose I'd throw up if I didn't stop and rest.

Try the 800 meter dash! That'll kill you.

Carlispj: why did you say a 10K run is harder than a 10k swim, then say a 10K swim is way harder an a marathon. Just curious and a little confused.

@zrayish that's way better than my first mile. I was exhausted and glad to finally be done in 11:30 (that was about 4 months ago btw). So slow. My last mile was 8:41 and I wondered why I didn't push harder. It was a hard jog, hardly a run. Anyway.

Ran a mile as fast as I could (nearly 10 min LOL)

09/15/12 7:09 pm

mobligity: No, I meant a 10k (6.2 mile) swim. I swam the Applegate Lake 10k in Oregon this summer. And yes, it was a very long swim. Way, way harder than running a marathon.

Sprints for track after doing a lot of core work

What is this "exercise" you speak of?

I actually haven't thrown up for almost 6 years now. Yes, I keep track.

High school athletics and in the military.

09/14/12 6:48 pm

Track, soccer, softball... All in one day. By the end I'm lucky to be able to hobble to my car.

09/14/12 5:27 pm

Football practice and Army Basic Training.

Lol you've never worked out hard enough unless you've thrown up. I have more than once.

FearToFall what is this for
09/14/12 3:02 pm

Not yet, but I bet it's coming soon with these harder practices and such.

09/14/12 11:22 am

Never threw up from exercise. Had coaches try during practices but never happened. I also don't throw up unless I make myself, if it happens involuntarily... Then it's something serious like food poisoning

09/14/12 6:10 am

My first morning of school basketball practice. Ate too much for breakfast & threw it all back up after running several line drills. As did several other girls on my team lol We learned our lesson about proper breakfast food after that

09/14/12 5:35 am

Carlispj: i think you're thinking of something else. A 10k is 6.2 miles. That is a very difficult swim.

bad. It's kinda a middle of the pack time. But an hour faster is really different. That would have most regular runners congratulating him on an impressive race for a none pro.

@gramps lol. If she doesn't respond with real numbers that's a great assumption, but I'm inclined to think she meant a 7 min/mile for 20 minutes. That would be reasonable. That would be about 8.5 mph plus that 50 lb pack. Much better than sprinting. Although hey, even Ryan's "real" time isn't too…

09/14/12 12:42 am

After some very intense 2-hour skating practices for hockey, the entire team threw up.

Although it is gross and I don't like to throw up.

Gunfighter: Sometimes during a competitive race a get so oxygen deficient that I just hit the wall, usually on the back stretch of the last lap in a mile run (I always have a kick). Leaving everything you've got on the track is a sign of determination and strength, and throwing up is just that.

I haven't, but my friend did one during a XC race. She was 2nd and threw up at the finish line, so everyone had to jump over her vomit to finish. It was quite funny, actually.

09/13/12 11:23 pm

Heh GgB, I did a 10k one time, too, but I didn't throw-up. The difference, however, is that I did a 10k swim and didn't throw-up. To be fair, though, a 10k swim is way easier than a 10k run, so you're totally justified in throwing-up after your race.

No, but I've had diabetics who did. Did not eat before exercise.

Army Basic Training our DI got pissed during morning workout, so after we got breakfast he took us on a 3 mile fast run and I lost it around mile 2...then Ranger training puked several time.

09/13/12 9:45 pm

It's a fetish when I see women runners puke.

High school hockey tryouts got me every year

09/13/12 8:50 pm

I did a 10k once and threw up about 10 mins after finishing.

No but every time I run a marathon I get that awful metallic taste and certainly feel like it

09/13/12 8:45 pm

Not even with a drill instructor yelling in my ear. Breaking a sweat is pretty much a warning you're in overload. Pushing past that to the point of puking? Not with an almost-average IQ or better.

09/13/12 8:39 pm

Yep. We push things called Prowler sleds in preseason football training. Everyone pukes. It's awesome.

09/13/12 8:10 pm

I almost threw up once but that's it !

09/13/12 7:59 pm

Coming off stage from a particularly rigorous routine at a national dance competition. People don't think it's that hard - we were essentially doing a mixture of intense cardio and sprinting for three minutes straight. Not to mention having to keep your face the whole time.

09/13/12 7:48 pm

Was kommswife running a marathon with Ryan?

09/13/12 7:33 pm

No but I was very close a couple times

When I first went to Army boot camp I threw up after running 3 miles for the first few times

09/13/12 7:10 pm

Once I almost threw up then the gym teacher said we were out of time and didn't have to run the last two laps

09/13/12 6:34 pm

During Hell Week - the start of the football season.

09/13/12 6:33 pm

Yes! God I miss my trainer. First workout with him and I nearly passed out. Had to run to the bathroom and throw up. Wish I didn't live so far or I'd still be going there.
