Rollercoaster Day

Had a terrible day at school. Wanted to cry and go home within the first half-hour. Ended with a headache and a giant urge to take a nap.

The husband worked is magic with a hug session and I felt better. Some water, cheese, and a wardrobe change and we were out the door for another 2-mile run. We drove up to his school and ran down the bike path. When I mapped it out when I got home, we did a total (walking included) of almost 3 miles! Bentley even behaved! Great workout!

And no pain in my legs!!!!! My lungs were still an issue. I cashed in on some free medical advice from Rachael at The Beginning Runner's Blog and she tells me that it's possible that I have sports induced asthma. I've had a feeling that was the problem, but I've also heard that SIA is totally bogus. I'm also on some blood pressure meds for headaches that could have something to do with it. I started these meds last May after I had worked up to almost 4 miles. The first day I took them, it was like someone ripped out my lungs after half a mile. I'm totally talking to my doctor about SIA and kicking those blood pressure meds. They don't help my headaches at all anyway.

Don't forget to check out Katye's Road ID giveaway! Or don't....because I still want it!


  1. Sorry about your day at school. HOpe tomorrow is better.

  2. I hope you have a better day today! I find a good workout really helps a stressful day!

    Can you maybe get a home blood pressure monitor and use it to track your BP? My mom did that and only takes her BP meds if it gets high. Otherwise she controls it with diet and exercise. It makes it so she doesn't have to take as much medicine. Just an idea... :)
