The Mother of all headaches!
I woke up at 2:30 AM this morning with one of the worst headaches I’ve ever had. The pain was so intense that I thought I was going to get sick. I very rarely get headaches, and I have no clue what brought that one on. I did feel a little run-down yesterday afternoon, so I wonder if it’s a bug or something? I’ve not been sick in well over a year – in fact maybe even closer to two years. I hope my streak is not going to end!
Anyway, with my head pounding I managed to get out of bed and take some Tylenol. I was hoping to fall back asleep right away, but the pain kept me awake for over an hour. I slept in an extra 30 minutes this morning, which really upset the dogs because they like to be fed at 6:00 AM sharp! Thankfully when I woke up at 6:30 AM my headache was nearly gone. Right now it’s just a very dull ache. Other than that I feel just fine… well, perhaps a little tired.
Right now the plan is to go ahead and work out this afternoon (chest & side delts), but I’ll skip it if my headache returns or I start feeling poorly. My training has been going very well, and I can’t even remember the last time I missed a workout. Maybe a couple of days off wouldn’t be such a bad idea, especially with a grueling bulk on the horizon. I’ll let my body decide for me a little later today.
That extra 30 minutes of sleep felt great, but now I’m running late. I’d better sign off and get to work. I hope you have a great day!
