|It started when I got a headache out of nowhere yesterday afternoon. I went to bed and was in and out of sleep with the same headache. And of course when I woke up for good, I still had a headache. I debated about not going to work today. But I went. I figured I'd drink a cup of coffee and hope for the best. I felt better as the day went on but I didn't eat much. A headache can kill a healthy appetite.|
Anyway, I made it through the day but I ended up staying way longer than I wanted to. I get off at 5pm. I clocked out at 6:15pm. Yep, a customer kept me on the phone for over an hour and a half. Nice lady but she was a BIG talker. She jacked up the rest of my day. I stopped for Chinese take out because I was NOT cooking. But before I could eat, I had to get my run in. It's bad enough that yesterday was all jacked up because I went out to dinner with friends after work. So I had no time for strength and yoga. And I had every intention of making it up today. But after how my day started and ended, it just wasn't happening. I did not do one squat, lunge, push up or anything else. Week 4 will just have to wait.
Okay, so I got home after 7pm. I seriously considered just postponing the run but I really hate to be off schedule. I'm already off schedule and I'm not in the mood to make anything up. Anyway, I gulped down a cup of chocolate soymilk and headed out. I started out too fast. I did an out and back route, and the back part is mostly uphill. Halfway through, I wanted to stop. The only thing that kept me going is knowing that I'd have to walk 1.75mi home and I'd get home much quicker (for dinner) if I just ran. Oh, and I forgot to mention that I got a major stomach cramp heading into mile 2. I guess I shouldn't have had the soymilk. But I was starving. I needed something.
My splits are all tore up but I'm not that mad about it. I had a restless sleep, I got rid of yesterday's headache 24hrs after it started, and I didn't eat much prior to running. Oh, and let's not forget that it's HOT. It was after 7pm and still 89° out. And it did not help that once the run was over, I felt like I could spontaneously combust. I get SO MUCH hotter the moment I stop running. I guess running creates a breeze. And when I stop I feel like my temperature shoots up. I'm sure it does.
Anyway, I just finished eating not too long ago and I'm developing yet another headache. So I'm going to wrap this up. Night all.
