Well, when you throw that into the mix of heat and being dehydrated (over caffeinated), things aren't going to go well.
The prescribed workout this afternoon was 4 to 5 sets of the following: run an 800 at 5k race pace, 45 second rest, run 400 hard and rest for 3 minutes. I made all of my goal times through the first 3 sets. About a minute into the third rest, I started feeling light headed. I hoped it would go away, but I just felt a little out of it. I had enough energy to continue my workout, but didn't want to push it with the way my head was feeling. I went over to a nearby Oak tree and set down in the shade for about 10 minutes. That did the trick, but I was done for the day.
Hopefully, this back pain and stiffness will be gone by Thursday's workout.
In the meantime, here are a couple pics from the Lake Mary 5K.
