First, some random vacation photos:
My day was filled with work craziness (3 court appearances in 2 different counties), which meant I didn’t have time for my morning run (and weather prevented me from running yesterday) and I didn’t eat or drink enough. Which left me with a MASSIVE throbbing headache by the end of the day. The last thing I felt like doing was running. But I was feeling disappointed that I had missed running yesterday. And I needed to change out of my work stuff and shower anyway, so I figured I might as well put on the running gear and go just a mile and turn around if the pounding on the head was horrible. I swear that the second I started pulling my running pants on, my head stopped throbbing and I felt better. Before I even took one step out of my closet! I ended up with a fabulous feeling 6 miles, with a 20 minute tempo in the middle (about 7:56ish pace). So next time you have a headache, skip the tylenol and try running instead!
