Today I'm feeling not so great again. A few times over the past week, I've been getting migraine headaches. All three times that it's happened, it has been on a day that I've run so initially I thought perhaps I wasn't hydrating or eating enough post-run.
Last night I was super-vigilant about staying hydrated. I even stopped mid-run to have some water (which I never do, especially when on my treadmill) and then ate my dinner right after I was finished. When the migraine started, right away I went to the kitchen to grab more food. I scooped out some ice cream, but couldn't even finish the dish! I must have been sick!
I ended up going to bed at 8:45pm, sleeping straight through the night, and now I can feel another migraine starting up again. I went on WebMD - my favorite website - and discovered that about 30 minutes before some people get migraines, they get an aura which is like changes in light and vision. That's exactly what I've been having lately so at least now if I know that's a symptom, I can take some medicine right away and hopefully fend off the migraine. (And I am choosing to ignore the actual point of that article which is that I'm probably going to have a stroke or heart attack and die within the next few days so please just play along, m'kay?)
As if the universe knows that I'm feeling like crap, today the FedEx guy accosted me in the elevator because he didn't think that my response to his "Good morning," was cheerful enough. Seriously? What is that about? I'm not kidding when I say the entire elevator ride turned into him telling me that the week is almost over and I probably had Monday off so I should be happy. Totally not cool!
Luckily I planned out today's outfit earlier in the week so no thinking required this morning. I really wanted to wear my new Banana cardigan to work so please don't think I'm yucky for wearing it twice this week. I promise, I'm taking it to the cleaners this afternoon, okay?

I think I might go home and get some more rest. I definitely need to figure out how to stop these migraines because being miserable four times a week after every single run is simply not an option!
