10/30/2015 Quick run and headaches

A 20 minute run at a decent pace and I feel good.  I haven't run since Monday and it definitely helped calm my nerves a bit.  Obviously, they have and will continue to build right up until Sunday.  I have to say this last week, I have been off.  All growing up and into my early adult years, I was never a headache kind of guy.  I would get a headache occasionally, but usually attached to some other illness.  However, in the last few years, I have started to get headaches that really kinda suck.  

I wouldn't classify them as massive migraines, like I need a doctor or medication, but I definitely do not enjoy them and I can't really contain them.  I think I was misdiagnosing them as caffeine headaches at first, but I have realized that, that isn't the case.  Over the last week or so, I have had a few headaches off and on and I'm not sure if they are weather related, Mets related, race related, stress related, or what!  I do know that I got one Wednesday evening and it was not good and carried over into Thursday.  

It did get better later in the day and I am just hoping to avoid any more until after the race.  I don't know how to avoid them, so I am just simplifying my meals and drinking a lot in an effort to stave it off.
