How To Balance Between Strength Training and Running?

My Dear Inspired Life
The year 1999. Evening 7:30 pm at a hospital on a weekday. The nurse asked me, "Show me your hip for the injection.", as I was rolling up my sleeves to show my upper arm to take the injection. She said, "No, this injection needs to be given at the hip area, as it would be a terrible pain if I gave it on the arm.". She gave the hip injection. After a few minutes, I got up from the bed, started walking. As I approached the hospital exit, I felt drowsy, threw up, and almost fainted. My friend who had accompanied me caught hold of me, took me back to the hospital bed. I laid down there until the nurse gave me an orange drink to make me feel better. I had a high-temperature fever, was weak, and went to the hospital to get treated for the same.
