Yesterday I went running, or at least tried to. I did a long warm-up (13min) from work to a trail, then started alternating running and walking. I think the first minute running was the longest I ran. I think each running period after that was around 30sec each. I wasn't looking at my watch, just went with how I felt. I went 15 min out then turned around. It was hot and sunny and took longer getting back than going out. It was a little over 3mi total and took me just over an hour. Almost as soon as I started running it felt harder to breathe. At one point my HR was ~200bpm. I was tired before going out as the kids have been staying up late. In fact, the night before I was the first one to go to bed! By the time I got back to the car I had a headache at the base of my skull. I'd forgotten to pack my visor, good thing I had sunglasses at least.

Today was a complete and total rest day. I drove to work instead of biking and took a nap around dinner time. I still had the headache all day till after the nap. No pain med worked to relieve it even though part of it was tightness high in my neck just below my skull. Well, feeling better now, and it's past bedtime again. ;)
