Today’s run (street): 3.4 miles
This day started great, with a nice early run in conditions that were close to yesterday’s. I’ve been running hard lately, so I backed off in terms of intensity. I had a deadline to meet, so I knew I couldn’t go out too slowly. Just before I hit mile three, I saw that my time was out of acceptable range. I decided to turn up the jets and ran the last half mile like I was finishing a race.
Things got a little tough after that. We did a family activity at the Cradle of Aviation museum and the building temperature must have been set to the mid-50’s. This triggered one of my pressure headaches and, in the course of about 90 minutes, I went from feeling great to needing to lie down. I got home and took a decongestant before settling into a recovery nap.
Sleep minimized my headache but it was still there in the background. That made for a very long afternoon of work. Spending so much time in front of my laptop didn’t help the situation and my headache, though better, is still there. I hope a good night’s sleep will help knock it out completely. I have a tough trail run planned for tomorrow afternoon and I want to be at my best for it.
