Tough Day for a Workout

Yesterday was a bit weird in my workout life. I had a bit of a headache in the afternoon. Monica and I got home from work and we both went to start our respective workouts. (By the way, for those of you that have been reading a while and remember the times when I was travelling back and forth to Michigan...well, I love being home every night.)

As soon as I started my warm up my headache got bad. My right temple started throbbing. I literally could feel my pulse throbbing in my temple. I actually did pretty well in the workout, but the pain in my head was terrible. I pushed through the pain, but only completed the first half of the P90X workout.

The half I did complete, I did very well. I did at least 10 pull ups per set for the 4 sets of pull-ups I was able to do. I did pretty well at the leg exercises as well. However, I knew I wouldn't be able to get through the entire workout.

By the way, if any of you reading this are doctors and think I need to go see a doctor let me know... :-)

I've almost finished up week 1 of my 2nd round of P90X. I have to say, despite the troubles I've had this round, its been so much easier to get through this workout since I have the workout habit already ingrained.

Till next time.



  1. Oh no, I am soo sorry. Sometimes weather changes just bring these headaches on. You may have had a migrane-it is like the difference between a sore throat and strep throat. You KNOW the difference between a headache and a migrane. Meds over the counter just will not work. Anyway-I hope this is a one time thing for you. I am proud of you for keeping up with your workouts so well!!!

  2. There's nothing worse than a bad headache. Ugh. You're pretty tough for pushing through as much as you did. Glad to hear the 2nd round is going easier for you. I'm still waiting for the workout habit to get "ingrained" in me! Just finished week 5 and it's still a battle every day. Oh well, I'll still keep pushing play!

  3. Sorry for the headache-but the workouts are getting easier because you are going to hit a plateu soon..just do the + already.
