Today, I had possibly the worst headache I have ever had, from the second I woke up. I don't know what they are from exactly, but I get these headaches from time to time. The frequency is directly related to how well I am eating and/or working out. I know that as I am on the low end of my nutrition level and the working out is sporadic. When I am going right, at most I will get these headaches 1-2 times a year. When I am off the chain healthy living wise, I get them at least once a month. This is my second in the last 2-3 weeks.
I have been disappointed in 2017 as a whole running and fitness wise. I have been thinking about making a great end of this year and really pushing myself through 2018. Currently, I am building a challenging workout plan for now until June 2018. It will be more varied than I have ever done, by my choice. Today, I decided to go with a 30 minute workout instead of running in case my headache caused me to end early. I started with a 5 minute jump rope session. I will admit, the bouncing of the head did make me think about quitting. Luckily, it ended pretty quickly. After the 5 minute jump rope, I did the following exercises without rest in between.
1 min plank
I did 4 full sets of the exercises with virtually no rest. At the end of the sets, I finished up with another 5 minutes of jump rope. The whole workout took me exactly 30 minutes to finish and magically, no headache anymore.
In the coming days, more running, more workouts, sharing of the plan, and in general, more Daily Fitness Journal.
