sunday's race was a good learning experience (and yes, i learned more than that i don't like races where i am freezing and in no man's land) and a motivating start to the season. my race report hasn't been started, but i (barely) ended up in 3rd place in my age group.
can't write much now. i have my monday migraine. i get terrible excercise induced headaches. they come every sunday night while i sleep (wakes me up at 3am!) after any very long or hard workout and usually end monday night while i am sleeping. it pretty much just feels like i am violently hungover (can't see/focus/nautious/throbbing head). there is a good amount of info out there about these kinds of headaches:one theory is that strenuous exercise dilates blood vessels inside the skull. another is that those prone to migraines already (me!) have an increased likelihood that strenuous exercise will trigger one. i like to look at the treatments for this. one of which is "do not engage in the exercise." sure. but, i think its time to go to the doctor. facing monday today is going to be a rough one.
i think i'll put my race report up on wednesday?
