Running Hulls Gulch on medication

Saturday's are my days to do whatever - ski, bike, run, Crossfit. No training - just fun! But since I was at the doctors, I missed out.

I was warned the medication I'm now taking will interfere with my workouts - but my thought is that I eat extremely healthy and am in great shape, so it is likely not to affect me as it does the every day average joe.

So, today I ran Hulls Gulch - twice!! I didn't have my Garmin on so I'm bummed that I don't have my time documented. But today was so beautiful out and I miss running Hulls (it's been a bit mucky). I felt okay on the first trip and decided to run a second loop. Actually, I planned to run Hulls and Sidewinder but Sidewinder looked pretty muddy so I decided to keep going but was not tired when I finished. Plus I wanted to be outside, so I went on a second loop. Fatigue set in fairly quickly for the second loop and I also felt irritation of my left hip muscle. Once home, I got some protein in me (egg drop soup with crab!) but soon felt overwhelmingly fatigued and ill. My legs were sore, my stomach upset, my head pounding, I layed on the couch trying to recover. I was pretty done for the remainder of the day. I'm not sure if it's just that I'm not in great shape right now, or over trained, or the medication, or a combination of it all - but yesterday was not good and I don't want a repeat of it.
