feeling better

All I can say today is that I’m glad yesterday is over! It was the strangest thing. I was feeling great, went to the gym, ran my five miles (woo hoo), came home, took a shower, and when I got out of the shower, I realized that I couldn’t focus on anything! I was seeing huge cloudy spots and everything was a blur. I thought maybe I just had to give my eyes some time to adjust to the light, so I lay down on my bed for a minute with my eyes closed…but it wasn’t getting any better. Before long, I started to get a head ache, and it was then that I realized, I was getting a migraine! (I’ve only had two others in my life -my first was in the 5th grade… my 2nd in high school). I called John at work and he immediately came to the rescue…as he always does! He had gone to Walgreens and picked up these Migraine “Be Koool” gel sheets that you’re supposed to put on your head, along with some Excedrine Migraine.



This stuff really works!


After he medicated me, he made me a sandwich, got me some bottled water, and sat and rubbed my feet to try and get my mind off of the pain! I seriously couldn’t ask for a more compassionate husband. He is so so good to me. After he left, I tried to go to sleep, but I was seriously in so much pain that I couldn’t relax…plus at that point, I was feeling super naucious. It was horrible. Before too long, I finally drifted off, and felt a whole lot better when I woke up. John got home and continued to pamper me and Brooke sent us some delicious, homemade, chicken noodle soup that really hit the spot. Thanks Brooke!
PS. Does anyone know what causes migraines anyway? I’d love to be able to prevent that nightmare from recurring!

Maybe training too hard??? I happen to think the training schedule you girls are on is too rigorous, unless you're already in shape. It seems to me that the schedule gets you up to running 5 miles awfully fast...and next week, six! It might be wise to re-evaluate that; and, it appears your body agrees with me. :-)
